Honestly, while I don't agree with breaking the law, most hunters here in Idaho aren't going to miss those bears all that much. We're all getting pretty tired out here of being the outlet for the guilt of people who live back east concerning the low population of some predators. If you guys back east miss them all that much, put them in your back yards. The elk herds in the Selway and Lolo wilderness areas have been devastated by grizzleys and wolves and honestly I can't eat a wolf or a grizzly and I don't really care to look at one so why the hell would I want more of them. It took half a century to bring the elk herds of Idaho back from near extinction and now the federal government is destroying that with the introduction of non native wolves.
When hunting whitetails there are many different languages being spoken afield that I key on when outdoors. All these little creatures living around whitetails have something to tell us if we are willing to listen.
My favorite tattletales of the outdoors are a handful of little birds that live in my state of Ohio. Maybe yours too. A tip for the upcoming season.
There are Blue Jays, Cardinals, Chickadees, Killdeer, and Sparrows that all have language...
