I think we should have an earlier season, but a month of bowhunting and four weeks of gun hunting would be too much. We want to control the population, not wipe them out. As for hound hunting, I do not think we have enough large parcels of public land to do this. We don't have the option of running a bear for several miles.

A month of bow and 4 weeks of gun would no more wipe them out than the unlimited does does deer. Bears are smart and would adapt just like every other huntable species.

Absolutely and it might just put the fear back in them of humans that is missing now.

I do not agree with the use of hounds for bear, just not enough room for it, one week of firearm is fine if moved a week before six day and a two week bow season in October or November will be fine to, just the fact we'd be hunting before the denning season will increce the harvest numbers.
