Karl Malone couldn't beat the Bulls, but he did just kill a bear, which will have to serve as some consolation for his Chicago woes. Malone and his son (who posted the inset photo via Instagram) went on a hunting trip this weekend, where the former NBA player took down a bear with his compound bow. Malone is an avid hunter who has expressed how much he enjoys hunting black bears in the past. While there isn't a lot of information about where this took place, bear hunting is legal in 27 states. Here's a gallery of athletes who love to hunt.
