I was just recently watching the Outdoor Channel : Western Extreme with Jim Burnworth hunting Black Bears on the Quinault Indian Reservation with Ocean Crest Resort. Apparently you can shoot as many bears as you have tags for (or money for).
Jim takes two bears within minutes of each other in broad daylight. He gets down from his stand to take care of the first bear and by the time he gets to the second bear another bear has eaten a good portion of it. I think he said he was about 70 yards from the second bear when he was cleaning the first. I have heard of wolves getting to a bear first. This is a first for me to hear about this.
I guess we don’t have a population of bears in Minnesota that is that competitive!
