I have thought that many times in the past. Heck add Turkey in there too while there at it.

Just thinking it would be a great expansion of opportunity with a very minimal impact on the bear population.

Yes it would be minimal. Most of the bears are denned up by then and although some don't den at all and while some do move most don't go far. I doubt many would be taken. A guy from Crawford county did kill a bear with a flintlock in the regular season.

Listen, or your tongue will make you deaf.

"When a pine needle falls in the forest, the eagle sees it, the deer hears it, and the bear smells it."

I'm sure hardly any would be killed. The ones that are killed would most likely be males or lone females. Probably would be very low harvest. Maybe just open it for a day or two to start with to test the waters.

That would be awesome. With that being said I canít ever remember seeing a bear or cutting tracks that time of year.

That would be cool. I know a rock knocker crew I hunt with sometimes has put bears out during a late season drive.

Obviously, it's a couple weeks away, yet. But the bears we're traveling like nuts around here this past weekend.

A good many years ago, I was walking into my stand in the dark for a late season bowhunt and a fresh set of bear tracks went right past the base of my tree. It was -8 degrees that morning.

Same here. IMO it would have minimal impact plus provide minimal opportunity.
