those words right at the top

those words right at the top are what we like to see. "expanding" is great. i'm glad the units are growing, it shows a healthy trend in population, hopefully, the bears range will expand down the coast of the great lakes back into ohio.

i always wished there was or will be a bear season there, but it probably won't happen, unless on a very limited basis. in my entire life, i only witness one bear in ohio. a juvenile bear was looking for something to eat in the neighborhood firewood pile. it searched it on several occasions and was a pleasure to witness every time. that bear moved on to more remote reaches of the lake shore though.

it's nice seeing more oppertunites in game varieties!

I’m glad to see expanding hunting opportunities too

I agree ndemiter. 

I’m glad to see expanding hunting opportunities no matter what form they appear in and whenever they arrive. I’m surprised that you don’t have more bear in Ohio. I would think that the climate would be just a bout ideal for back bear. It sounds like your situation with the black bear population is about like mine with the moose population here in New York State. They have begun to move back into the most northern boundary areas of the state but not in sufficient numbers to justify a hunting season here yet. But I have high hopes for a New York State moose season – at least on a limited basis within my lifetime.
