A person or persons comes around a corner of the trail or bend in a river and unexpextedly interups a bear in the pursuit of taking a big game animal. If said bear runs off and leaves the animal, is it legal for hunter/hunters to harvest the still living big game animal? What if big game animal is already wounded by bear (but still living)?
What if the animal is already dead, does that change the legalities of anything?
I have searched the regs and do not see this mentioned anywhere that I could find
