    BlackBears each spring

    Anybody have an idea how many BlackBears are taken in spring each year in BC ?
    We should have no bag limit when it comes to bears , that would really help the moose calfs and fawns, even
    if the wolf population remains the same or increases we can do our part in helping the ungulates by taking 2 bears per
    year. Even if we don't trap Wolfs we still can make a small differance .

    Not enough. Kill bears. Kill all bears.

    Definitely need to take more, that being said, I don't think increasing the bag limit will do much, how,many hunters would take more than 2 bear a year? How many hunters take 2 a year?

    This year will be my 2nd season of my hunting career. One of my reasons for becoming a hunter was due to a friend (now mentor) cooking me some black bear meat about 2 years ago...It was the best meat I'd tasted. 6 months later I had my firearms license, my hunting license and a bear tag in my pocket. I was lucky enough to fill a spring bear tag last year in Northern BC. I know it sounds lame and hokey but what a life changing experience... I'll for sure be making another trip this spring to hopefully fill the freezer again this year...I might even try for a fall bear this year because I hear great things about bear fat...My spring bear had little to no fat on him.
