The state dropped the size limit a few years ago because of the dificulty on judging the size of a live bear. People would shoot a bear and then leave it in the woods if they didn't think it was going to make the 100 pound mark.
They want to take more bears out and start to reduce the population. A lot of the prime bear habitat is being built up (doesn't that sound familiar?) and they are having more and more bear/human conflicts than ever.
This is my first year bear hunting.I went to Wv saw 3 bear's and know just with
a quick look 2 were over 100 pound's 1 was just a litte one 70 to 100 pounds
So if I can tell a live bear is over 100 pounds you must be a dumb #$$ if you can't tell that dead is over 100 pound's
For most on here there is a dream trip floating up around in their heads but there is a question of how to pay for it. This has been a problem for all hunters that wish for that elusive moose, bear, goat, sheep, elk, deer, or any other hunt where you are required to hire a guide or you choose to hire one for that hunt of a lifetime.
First off I am not a financial planner I am just a hunter that learned a long time ago that even with a great job there are going to be some...
