whiskey, hows your bear hunting going? I saw one last weekend about 1/2 mile away on the other side of the canyon. no way to put on a stalk though(to much snow in the way). maybe next weekend i will see him again. one of my customers showed me pics from his 6 trail cams he has up off of hwy57 toward timothy lake. since feb he has pictured 9 different bears. so he told me where to look. Big smile

Not true. Only Tom would be in pain as my third shot would be to the bears head. The bear would be dead and feeling no pain and while Tom was recuperating he could eat some of the bear roast. Evil!

went out today, up around the "mountain house" and up over hill to "fish lake". Access roads are all clear, fish lake is still under about 3-4 feet of snow.
Saw no signs what so ever. Seen a small elk heard, maybe 8-10, and a bunch of deer.

Anyone else having any luck?

I'd like to ask why you'd shoot a bear in the leg, the heart and lungs make for a quicker cleaner kill. As far as Tom getting shot in the leg, he probably did something to bring it on himself, like enter my home with a weapon.

Well anyways, I dont understand how you guys kill living things for fun...

God created animals for us to have somthing to eat, not to kill for the hell of it...
:) Just food for thought.....

Do you eat carrots, potatoes, beets, peanuts or turnips? Everytime you eat one, you just killed the parent plant. What if God put plants here for us to look at, and animals for us to kill and eat. Wouldn't you feel bad at those pearly gates, knowing you have maimed,tortured and killed countless plants in your lifetime. I was a vegan/vegetarian for 10 years (not for moral reasons and I have never been an anti-hunter/anti-carnivore). My son is allergic to most things a normal vegetarian would eat(soy,wheat,dairy,peanuts,etc.). Without meat, he would surely have miserable health. Now I prefer to hunt, so that the meat we eat, can be harvested ethically with little pain for the animal. The animals all live free in the wild, which makes me feel better at the table. If the systems that bring you food to the grocery store were analyzed, I am sure the pollution, travel, oil drilling, slaughter houses, etc. , involved with bringing you food, kill and harm more animals, per meal eaten, than any naturally harvested game animal. Stop blaming and preachin' and try to go out and forage enough vegetal matter to remain healthy. May be possible in some climates but not in most. And as far as primitive goes, during the last ice age we were nearly the same human, with little cognitive difference. Without human ingenuity to devise implements for survival, i.e. spears and bow and arrow, not many modern humans would remain after the last ice age. So thank the hunters that lived before you for protecting their posterity. You anti-hunters have flawed logic and values. Most of you would rather see a human die than an animal, as you suggest it time an time again in your anti-hunting rants. The truth of the matter is you are all very disconnected from the natural cycle.

"CentralOblow" No one is blaming or preaching. my comment was obviously not directed to you. I said that people shouldn't kill animals for the hell of it. And from what you said, you hunt to give you and your son a more nutrious, healthy and safe meal. Which I believe wouldnt be described as hunting for the hell of it. I am not a vegetarian, I eat meat and that is only because as far as I know, the animals that go to the slaughter houses are killed in a humane way. But when you are huntung, you may have the good intentions of trying to kill it painlessly, but that may not always happen. Which is why I dislike the idea of people killing harmless animals for the hell of it. I have nothing against people like you who do it for an understandable reason. And I do understand that some animals would overpopulate without hunting, but I am a 17 year old girl who has a great passion for animals, so hunters please do not blame me for disliking the idea of hunting. I wa searching for animal photos to add as a background for my computer, and this website pops up. So please understand how I felt reading about people who were killing bears and mountain lions.

Ashley,

This is a hunting site, that's what we do. This also is as good as it gets on the internet concerning our mrmbers and how they approach our sport. You are more than welcome to pose your questions but please leave your anti agenda out of it.

BTW, you have obviously never been in the kill room of a slaughter house, I have!

PM sent.

Many hunters also have a great passion for animals. Hunters, not hikers, hunters, not campers, hunters, not rock climbers fund animal conservation. It is hunter dollars, hunters efforts that create an environment where both game and non-game animals can flourish. Hunters create an economy where small towns can survive and worldwide they prevent poaching and feed hungry villages.

Hunters like Teddy Roosevelt are responsible for bringing back many animals on the verge of extinction.

Read more and you'll learn that most hunters want to take the animal in the most humane manner possible. Yes, hunters kill animals, but that is simply part of nature. And hunters like myself eat the animals which we kill.

This is a wonderful diverse country and there is room in it for both the hunter and non-hunter.

You said you were looking for photographs, well there are several posters on here that take beautiful photographs of animals.
