    all animals are wonderful , you wouldnt shoot a roe kid would you . As for black bears , Id shoot one why not , theres plenty about and the numbers are regulated , over here we have no bag limits but over there things are done a little different . Each to their own

    Yeah - without black bears the Wooden Tops would get very cold heads on Public Duties.......

    I doubt hunters in the US would share your sentiment.
    It doesnt really interest me, but i'm sure i would feel differently if i had been raised across the pond.
    Good video though.
    Cheers

    It seems that Black bear is very fine eating. Know some folks who hunt Black Bear every year.

    They're meant to taste great! I'd love to shoot one! Good meat, fantastic trophy and a good holiday into the bargain.
    I found some last year that were about $1200 (Canadian) to shoot black bear with a bow. I will do it one of these days!

    Got this one with my .22

    You can see he had a bad coat and needed culling

    I've eaten it. Never again.

    I've had half a dozen close encounters with bears. Never had to shoot one but came very close once. I have zero interest in hunting them despite them being available to me.~Muir

    Bears have probably been extinct here since the Iron Age and travelling across the world to shoot one holds little appeal. If they did live locally and were making a nuisance of themselves that would be a different matter, although I dont think that I would want to eat one.atb Tim
