New World Record Brown Bear
On May, 2018 on the Alaska Peninsula, Chris Cammack, broke Jack Brittingham’s record for the world record brown bear taken with a bow. After a lengthy stalk on a brushy mountain side in the wind & rain Chris was blessed to arrow this amazing brown bear at just 14 yards.

It is still so surreal to me, the thought that I would have ever had the opportunity to hunt an Alaskan brown bear with my bow, let alone (be) honored enough to harvest the new P&Y World Record,” said Cammack in a Pope and Young Club news release.
Thank you to everyone that helped make this dream a reality,” he added. “Special thanks to my friend and guide Cole Kramer, and especially my wife, Felicia for supporting me and allowing me to chase my dreams. Usually, Felicia is right beside me with her bow in hand, but this trip she stayed home and took care of our baby girl, Davoni. Coming home to them is a true blessing. Getting to spend two weeks with my friends in the bush of Alaska was the greatest adventure of my life, harvesting a new World Record brown bear was a bonus.”
The bear skull will be on display at the Pope and Young convention in Omaha, Nebraska April 10-13, 2019.
