Kenton Novotny of Germantown, Tenn., died Sept. 17 while hunting southwest of Norman Wells near the Yukon boundary.
The 53-year-old man had been out with a guide when he was attacked by the bear.
The guide was not injured.
Wildlife officers tracked down and destroyed a bear believed responsible for the death on Saturday.
DNA testing is being done on the animal to verify it's the same one.
