    How many grizzlies are being killed?

    The grizzly bear hunt was ended in BC, anybody have any idea of the effect that has had on all cause mortality of grizzly bears? Hunters aren't killing them but has car/train collisions increased? Does BC even have such stats?
    Knowledgeable shooters agree- The 375 Ruger is the NEW KING of all 375 caliber cartridges. ALL HAIL THE NEW KING!

    The real question is how many the CO's are killing and how many problem bears are being shot by the general public and not being reported.

    There was just a public engagement session not that long ago that had a lot of the info you are asking for. Im not going to dig it up again...we need hunters to get involved. Educate yourself.

    The biggest issue with people in general is they want instant gratification rather than simply putting in a bit of effort. Its all out there for your consumption.

    That's absolutely a good question and part of overall human caused mortality.

    Go read Grizzly Bear Science an amazing book about G bears in BC written by a first class scientist. He goes into depth on causes of mortality. Knows more about bears than anyone I’ve ever met or worked with. Bios I’ve worked with all defer to him.
    Your asking in the wrong place. This is the tinfoil hat capital of the internet

    I bumped into a ranch hand Reg 5, 2 years back, she told me to shoot those Fkrs no ifs and or butts. The transplants she said are taking calves as soon as they drop. If she's not alone her thoughts!
    Take a kid hunting its more rewarding than shooting an animal yourself!!
