Bryce DuChamp, 14, of Erskine, Minn., shot this  black bear Sunday, Oct. 8, in the no-quota zone of northwest Minnesota.  "We were done hunting for the year and my dad had told us they had seen one coming out of a corn field the night before," Bryce's dad, Chris, writes. "So we decided to try it and this came out about 6:40.  He shot once and dropped it.  We weighed it and it field dressed at 420 pounds."  The bear was Bryce's third. "He sure is a lucky little guy when it comes to bear," Chris said. Click on the image to see the complete photo.
