I didn't believe it until I saw it with my own eyes. What do you guys think about this one? Pretty much going to shut down the fall harvest of black bears. The #2 complaint I hear from locals are that they don't see as many bears in town on the beaches as they used to (that hunters have killed off the easy to kill bears that are used to humans presumably). The #1 complaint being non-residents taking patheticly small bears that should have been passed up.
Do you believe that this regulation will put undue pressure on the few areas that will still be feasably hunted? I believe that this will put concentrated pressure on areas close to the city limits, coastal salmon rivers accessable by boat, and Forest Service cabins.
