OK, so I'm thinking this morning (which in and of itself are pretty amazing) about my upcoming elk hunt and a good hypothetical popped in my head:
You're hunting by yourself (not suggesting it, but important to my story). You shot an elk. You field-dressed the elk. You are making trips to get all the pieces/parts back to your vehicle, which is parked well off the center-line of the highway/road (necessary to establish legal shooting area relative to roads for my story). While you are away from you vehicle on another trip, a bear shows up and decides he wants to have lunch in the bed of your truck. Do you: A.) Let the bear have his way with your hard-earned quarry, B.) Try to shoo the bear away, C.) Shoot the bear?
Now for the fun little twist: You have a bear tag.
Is this baiting, is it a nuisance bear situation (for those of us in Colorado)?
Just curious as to what your thoughts would be on this.
I'll put this on the bear forum as well.
