During the archery bear season I harvest a bear.I call the PGC. Am I allowed to skin the bear before the WCO checks the bear?

Depends on what the wco tells you, a friend shot one last year it was warm and they couldn't be there til noon. He asked and they told him yes, as long as he left sex organ attached, due to circumstances

Anybody can shoot deer on the farm ground....You earn it in the mountains.......

we had a case like this a few years ago a man shot one down in a creek bottom a mile from any road.. he ended up quartering it and taking it all with sex organs attached to the check station, but i believe a officer met him and went with him to quarter.. cant remember the exact details

The uncommon man is merely the common man thinking and dreaming of success in larger terms

From what I heard in my area last year the WCO's want to see the bear immediately. They would then insist the hunter take them to the spot where the bear was harvested. They wanted to examine the stomach contents along with searching the surroundings. I heard that alot of guys got busted for baiting during the archery season last year.
