Out of curiosity...I was wondering how many brownies are allowed out of this section (15B I believe) and are they all special draw permits?
Saw hunters waiting for boaters and fishermen to clear the way before they took a young male brownie on Sunday. Although I wouldn't call that a "hunt", I figured they had every right to do it, or had a special permit to do it. I did not see the bear shot, just the hunters staked out and then multiple shots after we went up river, and no bear when we came back down. Word was it was shot.
Also, I thought there was some deal about it having to be so far from a public waterway or something, but apparently not.
Don't get me wrong, I'm a hunter and I've shot and killed things, but this didn't seem very sporting. Maybe it was the timing. Mid day with a river full of boats. I don't know...maybe it's that I enjoyed this bears personality and his daily rumpus with seagulls and salmon.
Thanks...Just looking for education for future reference on the distance from waterway and if it's a special draw.
