I'll tell you why! Because no one puts pics in National Geographic and the other yuppie rags of true bear behavior. All you ever see is some post prime boar catching and eating salmon at the falls. Or a sow and cubs playing in wild flowers.
Show those turds the real life adventures of bears and they'd scream in horror.
Black bears will kill cubs to bring a bring a sow back into heat also. I've read that a Brown bear will go as far as to kill a Sow that is too old to mate. I sometimes wonder if killing cubs is a natural way for bears to keep numbers and potential competition in check?
Jim Zumbo, Craig Boddington, Ron Spomer and Wayne Van Zwoll are all solid contributers to the modern hunting literature. Through their gifts (both hunting and writing) they make us better hunters. Whether it is letting us learn from their mistakes or by teaching us new techniques,they help us harvest more game. But I suggest looking to the oldies, the fathers of the outdoor writing craft, to learn tricks that you might have not used.
