Hey all, I'm a long time bird hunter, never hunted big game. I do know it's a hell of a lot of work and prep to go out and get yourself a bear, as a few friends of mine have been lucky enough to get one either through archery or rifle.
I came here for one reason though, and it wasn't to offend anyone. It was to ask a simple question:
How does anyone justify bear baiting and still call it hunting? Where's the sport in it?
As I said, I'm not here to piss anyone off. I'm not some animal activist. I just want to know where the satisfaction is in baiting a critter with food in the same place for weeks, and then popping it and calling it "hunting"? It doesn't make sense to me.
Help me out here guys, there's got to be something I'm missing.
Thanks, and shoot straight!
