Hay Minnesota.......... It`s time to start a wolf hunt up here. Delist the damn things already. The more bears over the population goal, the more hunting permits. Makes sense to do that for wolves also up here in northern Minnesota.

Why do they have to kill bears? We don't eat them, and we no longer need their hides to keep warm. I'm a gun lover, as my name implies, but shouldn't sport killing be confined to animals that taste good, or harm us? With all due respect.

What are you writing about? Why do you think bear hunters don't eat bear? I've had bear and it tastes great. I'm not a big fan of the Wisconsin law that allows dogs to hunt/chase bears, but there is nothing wrong with hunting bears. In Minnesota, there are way too many bears to keep them from doing mischief or even worse.

MN Observer; Thanks for the info, but I think I'd still rather have a Moose Burger. Bear sounds gamey! And , my cairn terrier is fierce, but she wouldn't stand a chance against a bear.

Actually, it wasn't gamey at all. My dad was worried about eating it because he apparently ate gamey bear that rummaged through a dump outside Duluth many years ago. The bear I ate (and it was a Wisconsin bear) was lean and tender.
