I would to find out more about this old 1960’s photo from East Texas. Think it was taken near the Big Ticket maybe, but not sure what county. May have been as Sam Rayburn Lake was filling and the black bear had to move up from the lowlands. Anyone have any additional information? It will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I lived in the Rayburn area during the 1960s and do not recall there ever being a news story about a bear being taken around there. Here is what the bridge structure looked like before the dam was in place and the land flooded.

It would be nice to be able to see the auto license tags to see if that was even in Texas.

Impressive photo! Thank you for replying.
My hunt for additional information continues. It was thought the bear came up into Angelina or Jasper county during the flooding of the river basin, and perhaps the men were bird hunting when they got the bear. Some old hunters in San Augustine county remember a bit about it, but nothing is certain at all. The bear photo almost looks like an old newspaper photograph but I am not sure about that either.
Thanks again.

I do know that many years ago the black bear was reintroduced to Louisiana and some did cross the Sabine River and were killed in the Texas counties adjoining the state line.
