If your an alaskan resident its $25 if not its $500 for the tag and you'll need a guide. I wouldn't get to carried away about that "hunt" anyway. Anything Alaska does under the predator control act ends up all over the media and never really amounts to much. They'll be lucky to take 10 bears out of the area, I think they took 4 last year.
Here is the scenario... you sit in your 2 piece climbing stand and your foot inadvertently bumps the lower section while there is no weight on it - and it slides down the tree, out of reach!
OK, you are safe - you have a string tied from the upper section that you are sitting on and the foot portion that slid 4-5 feet down the tree. All you have to do it pull the other section up, reposition it and you are back in business, correct?
Have you ever tested this theory?
