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?
I learned this the hard way last year. If you're hunting in an area with lots of bear activity, it's a great idea to stash your food and water up in a tree. I like to wrap everything in a tarp and tie it between two trees. Don't just tie it up in one tree but tie it in between two trees at least 15 feet in the air. I thought I had my backpacking camp's food supply stashed pretty well last year. I returned to camp during the first weekend of archery to find all my food destroyed. Make sure...
