It's good for NJ and the hunters there. They need to thin the population some. They went from 500 bears in the 90's to over 3400 bears today, with sightings of bears in all 21 counties. 3000 complaints with less than 1 percent duplication of the complaints. That's a lot of bears spreading out and encroaching into areas they probably shouldn't be. The pic of the bear with a trashbag in his mouth should tell the story. More bears in more neighborhoods robbing the trashcans. That's what got the bears in Yellowstone and Yosemite into trouble. They raid the trash recepticals and eventually loose their fear of man. Then the bears ends up being destroyed when relocation didn't work.
There are times when the deer are simply not moving and you're forced to make something happen. Maybe you're up against a full moon or hot weather. This is when a silent drive to force deer to move should be considered.
By silent drive, you're not yelling and making a commotion to scare the deer. When deer are panicked, they're liable to bust out of the cover on a dead run, and any shot you get will be tough to make.
A silent drive is different. It means playing the wind to carry the driver's...
