…...if there was a flintlock bear season that ran concurrent with our late flintlock deer season ???
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.Just thinking it would be a great expansion of opportunity with a very minimal impact on the bear population.
Could you elaborate more on who you suggested this to and what was the reasoning for the answer they gave you?
Just curious, I'm sure they have there reasons
I think it was last year or maybe two years ago we put a nice bear out on a flintlock drive, and another one about 10 years ago. See tracks occasionally .If we targeted more bear type habitat maybe we might do that more often but usually were not pushing what I would consider bear cover.
I have been reading these post, and it seems 75% of the people here do not have a handle on muzzleloading shooting, loading, ect. With that said, I can see many wounded bears in our forest.
Spend an afternoon at a public range and you'll conclude that there's hardly ANYONE that qualifies to be in the woods with a gun...………..I have been reading these post, and it seems 75% of the people here do not have a handle on muzzleloading shooting, loading, ect.
