again this is for interior bear PROPS... as the souther regions have already met .
but spring fall Black bear harvest .. in the spring through June you are required to take meat and Hide and skull...
in the fall only Hide and skull...
how many hunt in the fall for just the meat? state wide if you would... if we can get one area changed others will follow.
I am a meat hunter and have more bears hanging around then i know what to do with.. and while sealing the one from last fall two others were at F&G trying to give them the hides
i feel that with the new harvest tag system that skull data could still be used and a lot less carried into F&G with meat harvest.. i guess if sex data is an issue... carry the oosik in with the skull, if you dont have one it was a she.
i am not sure as to WHY we have the current requirement. so if some one does.. please feel free to share.
