Before this year's Maryland bear hunt, Colton Lucas was considered a typical 12-year-old living in the Western Maryland town of Kitzmiller. He loved to hunt and fish with his father, Joe, and play football with his friends. His priorities haven't changed in the past two weeks, but the seventh-grader has become a local celebrity. And a hero. He's received the acclaim for killing a bear — a 376-pound male, which according to Mayor Mike Brady had been terrorizing the residents of Kitzmiller for several years.
