My buddy in CO didn't get any during the season. Passed on two smaller ones. But did get a big sow that was breaking into his house. It had tried before with out sucsess. Game officials told him he couldn't do anything till it acually caused more damage or got into the house. It had broke into his garage 3 times before. So a broken window later there was a dead bear.
Well that is one way of getting your bear I guess if you did not have any success during the season. Although I am pretty sure that no one wants a bear breaking into their house under any circumstances. They can do some pretty serious damage if they get confined into a small area and do not know how to get out. I have seen the aftermath left in a kitchen by a hungry bear and it was not pretty. They sure do make a mess of things when they get into food.
Did the division of wildlife let your buddy keep the bear? Or did they confiscate the meat and hide?
