If you are the literal fudd I am picturing living in the 100 acre woods and a bear walks up on your house and tries to break in to get food by all means shoot the thing.

However this thread is not about environmental homeostasis. Someone going out of there way to track and kill a large bear just for the pedestal is actually causing the "impact" you are talking about. Literally seeking and trophy hunting a bear is degenerate as hell.

I've killed and recovered 1 bear. Shot at 3 more but never found them.

If the game department says there are too many bears tearing shit up and sells you the license cheap, and you bid fair to get a free rug and a couple hundred pounds of free meat, you shoot them.

Neither of you insular little fuckheads understand how wildlife conservation works, much less where your food comes from. Stop talking.

Alright, so we'll go with Kodiak bears specifically.

We have multiple settlements on Kodiak Island so there is a chance of them coming into contact with humans outside of hunting. Plus we have the local ecosystem that we want to take care of. So I guess we need to keep the bear numbers at a safe and sustainable level. Which "trophy" hunting helps to do. Then the money for "trophy" hunting goes straight towards conservation.

TL;DR
We need to keep animal levels at a sustainable level and hunting is essential to this.

I was mostly berating people that, for example, travel to a different state with the intentions to simply to outbid a license, shoot a bear with a fucking AR, and then skin it and head for the taxidermist.

If any animal is interfering with your lively hood, by all means shoot it and use it.

If you are shooting a bear in response to your game deps requests and are going to harvest the animal entirely, go for it.

Leaving the meat behind isn't bad. Hell it's arguably more ethical as it provides more food for other animals in the environment.
>>
>>28587145
>I just posted it because the bear itself is a fucking monster.

It's just a camera trick. The guy is probably sitting a couple meters behind the bear, making it look much larger than it is.

Never believe any hunting or fishing picture unless the thing is sitting on a scale or has a tape measure laid on top of it.
>>
>>28587263
i don't like trophy hunters either. wasteful, they are. eat what you kill, or donate it, don't just leave it for the rot and the scavengers.
>>
>>28587320
That looks to be a Kodiak bear and they are the largest breed in the world IIRC. Polar bears might be about the same size or a bit bigger, but Kodiaks are massive. There most likely wasn't any movie magic to make it look bigger.
>>
>>28587303
not really more ethical, that animal you just killed could have produced more animals to hunt and live or, the meat will only be eaten by varmit like coyote.

Older animals (which are the ones most people try to kill) don't breed as much as younger ones. So killing them does help. As for the meat, like I said it's arguable. Personally I don't agree with it. I'd rather have some meat in my fridge so I can save money on food.

Truth.

My dad was buddies with one of my high school friends' dad, who was a state trooper. Since the kid and I hung out a lot, our parents all knew each other.

My dad was out hunting, I don't recall the season, when state trooper came across my dad's truck when he was out patrolling hunting spots. He sat and waited for my dad to return, and when he did, he checked his license, his gun, and some other shit. Basically the full run down.

Even if they know you, and your kids are like best friends, they don't screw around.

I actually agree with you, but honestly who the fuck are you to tell people "oh doing this with these motivations is okay but doing the same thing with slightly different motivations is totally wrong". People will do what they want, if there's a legitimate problem with bear poaching, then yeah lets prosecute them. If out-of-staters want to pay exorbitant prices for hunting licenses that's a good thing for the local conservation efforts too. Stop thinking so parochially and see the big picture.

So as far as hunting goes. You want something you can reach out and touch it with. I would use a 300WM or 338WM. 45-70 and 12ga slugs are great but don't expect any real accuracy past 200yds. Those are better suited if your watching a bait station or just hiking. As a side arm I would use a buddy with a 45-70 and I'd have a .357 or larger caliber revolver.
>>
>>28587342
you're fucking retarded if you don't think the pictures are hunter's tricks. Do you not see how he is clearly sitting several yards behind the bear in the other picture? or how the arm of the bear in the other picture is kept out of frame? besides from that obvious trick, you can clearly see with any depth perception whatsoever that the hand is much closer to the camera than the face.
