Jay Cutler has gone from playing for the Bears … to slaying them — the ex-Chicago quarterback just revealed he shot and killed a wild one while out on a hunt in Montana.
The 40-year-old has been in Big Sky Country for the last few days enjoying the state’s spring bear hunt … and on Tuesday morning, he came away with a big trophy.
According to Outsider, Cutler shot a cinnamon black bear with a scoped bolt action rifle … and it wasn’t hard to see the former NFL star was thrilled with his catch.
Cutler posted a pic with the dead animal on his social media page … writing, “MT bear hunt in the books” — and saying he was off to go enjoy a beer now.
Cutler also had a memorable moment on the hunt over the weekend, he found a huge elk rack and skull that was nearly as big as him.

Cutler’s become quite the outdoorsman in his retirement from football — he posts about his hunts regularly. In fact, just last summer, he said he hunted down a deer that he had been stalking for some two years.
Tuesday’s bear hunt, of course, sparked heated debates in Cutler’s comment section … but Outsider reports hunting black bears in Montana “is a crucial part of state conservation.”
