 Anyone having plans on doing some spring bear hunting -- might be a little slow back East with all the weather they are getting.

The tree huggers canned the spring season here. Theres talk go'in around that they might reopen it.

 

The bear population is get'in out of hand, and the big city folks have been whine'in about them head'in downtown to grub up their dinner.lol.

 

CDOW could double the take numbers if they bring back the spring hunt--- who wants to shoot a fall bear that's pack'in a summer coat?.

 That's an awful time of the year to be hunting bears.

Yep, and they opened up more " bear hunting opportunities" during the big game season, even the cpw admits that there is an over abundance of bears, but like Cat, said the tree huggers put a stop to that years ago. If they're gonna go through the trouble of a bill going through the legislation why not put it through to allow a spring hunt instead? But look on the bright side, we can now use lighted arrow nocks and have a camera attached to our bows, and they plan to have regulations in place by the start of the 2015 big game season to allow the use of dogs to retrieve wounded game. Cracks me up that they can see some things, but not the big picture.

Good to hear that some common-sense regs are on the horizon - none of which would help a hunter to kill a bear.  Lighted nocks, cameras, and tracking dogs only help to retrieve animals, which is any Colorado hunter's duty under current law.

 

Keep the pressure on the lawmakers, boys!  A nationwide movement is in progress, and one by one, states are getting onboard for common sense, in spite of detractors.

 

A bit on the subject matter is here:  http://www.ammoland..../#axzz3SHp5UHFg

But---but--- August is a fine time to hunt the Bruins. It can also make the bear guide look good too. He can just take one glance at the bears summer hide and know instantly theres no rub marks. And--- your hunter will think your quite the mountain man as you fight off the ticks and fleas attack'in you as your peeling the trophy hide from the critters carcass.  :roflmao:

Maine's coming on board with some common sense means of retrieval, if legislation is passed and they have a strong contingent of anti-hunters fighting against the very idea of bear hunting.
