Explain yourself please, from the great state of Kentucky !! The bear population in mountains has plentiful fo years !! Why is hunting bear with dogs in the South allowed and not in the North ?? Are they that plentiful down there ?? Apparently sir...you have no knowledge of what is going on here in in the mountains !! They are everywhere !! Anyone that wants to kill a bear...there is no excuse !! Bear population ain't too far behind the deer....at this point (it seems). But...baiting is allowed now (for deer)....so time will tell !!
I could easily kill one in the deer bow or muzzleloader seasons every year, but bear season doesn't open until they are over here.
