According to reports John Suda of Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), in company with some bear hunters from Hawkins, had a narrow escape when he shot a large bear while hunting one days las week in the area near Price Creek, southeast of Winter.

The large bear was treed by hounds and shot out of the tree by Suda. He went up to the bear and it suddenly came to life and grabbed him by the heel of his boots.

The hounds then jumped the bear, as the arrest of the hunter came upon the scene and pumped another shot into it. The bear dressed out at 425 pounds.
