Bear Den - Grant Street. The world’s record Wisconsin black bear was shot five miles northeast of Glidden during the 1963 hunting season. Otto Hedbany and Donald Struebel both of Milwaukee, were the hunters who bagged this trophy-size animal estimated to be twelve years of age.
The bear dressed out at 665 pounds and required seven men to pull it out of the woods. The bear’s height was 7 feet 10 inches. The world’s record black bear was purchased by the Glidden Chamber of Commerce and has been on permanent display in the Log Cabin Home since 1964.
Obviously, if bear hunting is your game, the Glidden area deserves the title of “Black Bear Capital of Wisconsin”. Black bear hunting season is usually open in September.
It’s a “take a book, return a book” gathering place where neighbors share their favorite literature and stories. In its most basic form, a Little Free Library, is a box full of books where anyone may stop and pick up a book (or two) and bring back another to share. Please come enjoy the fantastic resource provided by the Glidden Area Development Corporation. Pictured are the Glidden Girl Scouts. (2016)
