    My Taxi estimated 5ft, so a medium sized bear (official pending). She noted the thicker coat(no rubs) for the time of year, said she had seen quite a few with thicker than normal coats this year. Means an early winter she said................la...la...la.....I hope she is wrong.

    Partitions are the best of both worlds, quick opening and deep driving.

    the bear did not go from "bad bear" to "good bear".
    it went from live bear to dead bear, from living animal to meat, but to imply it was "bad" simply because it was a live bear is to me (yeah, yeah, i know) just just disrespectful.

    Could not agree more. Pretty "short leap" to start applying the same perception of not respecting the resource to other species. Once "theft" from Walmart is justified; pretty easy to find justification for other stores.

    I salvaged all of the meat so no disrespect to the resource, for those who have no funnybone. He was full of berries and is sweet tasting. It was a solo float and a lot of work. I got him just a few minutes before dusk and was working on him well into the night. Field dressed him on the spot to leave a gutpile, then dragged him back to camp on an elk drag plastic sled for the skinning. I had better visibility and because it was just me I was doing a little skinning and a little looking around for what might be hunting me.

    sounds like a great hunt and a good story.
    i love solo hunting, coming home succesful is the most fulfilling feeling.
    unfortunately your choice of title for the thread just rubbed me the wrong way...
    reminds me of "good indians" during our subjugation of north america.
    i would hope we could lose the attitude.

    Where's that "tolerance" that everybody's talking about nowadays? I'm frequently reminded by people near and far that I have to accept other people's speech, thoughts, beliefs and (not-illegal) actions regardless of my personal opinion. In fact, I've even heard my opinion should be kept to myself in the name of "tolerance". Funny thing about tolerance though is that for it to work it has to work both ways, and when it doesn't, those who preach but don't practice merely appear arrogant as though their opinion is the greater and only one worthy of being heard...

    Congrats on a nice bear, and congrats on the solo hunt. It's a little riskier, but I know I feel much more in-tune with my surroundings when I know (or at least think) that I'm the only human in the immediate area.

    This could go a lot of different directions, but I feel many would claim Matt was merely casting his support for eColt to say it as he felt it, and is therefore less egregious.

    Ponder this...would Matt's display of intolerance (righteous or otherwise) have occurred had you and Joe's intolerance for the OP's comments never been displayed?

    If expressing a different point of view is "intolerance" - then - fortunately this forum is replete with examples (as is the rest of the world) - FORTUNATELY!
