1962 Bear Kill
West Virginia hunters reported killing 64 bears during the 1962 season. This is more than double the 29 bears reported killed in 1961.
In 1962, Randolph County alone reported 25 kills. Pocahontas County was next with a reported kill of nine bruins. Included in this Pocahontas County tally was West Virginia’s first known bow kill of a bear, taken by Joe Roy, of near Marlinton. Roy made the kill with one well placed arrow fired from a tree stand.
In addition to this seasonal harvest, 18 bears were known to have been killed at other times of the year. This represents a 50 percent decrease from 1961.
by Rev. W. W. Sutton
Toward fall I began to plan to go to school to study for the ministry. We spent four years at Tennessee Wesleyan College. Upon returning and stopping at Cass, I saw an old buddy and friend, Burl Adams, standing on the platform. He was one of the best buddies on loading logs I ever had. I saw him as we were breaking down logs from a skid-way while loading get a bone broken below the knee of left leg. There he was and one arm gone. He said, “Sutton, you see I have had some more bad luck.” My heart ached for that old friend.
He told me one day that he had a sister in the Nunnery of the Roman Catholic Church. We all are human and inclined to genuine sympathy; may it ever be so.
