The Story of Tripod: The Three-Legged Bear (Clip from The Woodsman’s Podcast)

In this clip from last week’s episode of The Woodsman’s Podcast, Ed tells Max about Tripod, the three-legged black bear that Ed harvested this black bear in Maine at the beginning of bear hunting season this year from a tree stand over bait in a barrel. Tripod was 340 lbs and estimated to be at least 15 years old. Incredibly, he had only three legs.
