Craven County is widely known for the state record Black Bear, it’s been about 20 years since one of Dolly Parton’s cousins came down from the mountains of Tennessee and killed the 880-pound black bear in Craven County. The sport of bear hunting in our state was “riding high” with hunter’s interest all over the United States at that time and an 880-pound black bear made headlines. Attempts were made to have the Craven County North Carolina state record black bear (live weight record) registered with the B&C Club by measuring the skull and submitting these measurements to have it qualified as a record black bear. The skull was removed, dried and then registered with the B&C Club. Unfortunately, the final killing shot on this bear was carried out at close range with a 12-gauge shotgun loaded with a slug. The skull was severely damaged by the force of slug and, by the Boone & Crockett rules, a severely damaged skull cannot be registered for the record books. It is entirely possible that the Craven County bear could have been a world record had the skull not been so damaged. To this day Craven County and the Neuse River Basin is home to some of the best Black Bear hunting in the lower 48.
