    You don't understand, people with horses do not allow any hunting as "they do not want their horses shot ".
    Horses can be very spooky when it comes to the sound of gunshots!

    Maybe I'll clarify something, my brother is all the time out in the Rocky Mountain ranges due to his job (forest firefighter, medic ski patrol, ski hill crew). He told me a couple of things, a bear will give you enough attention and warning of its surroundings. A cougar will not. I don't think I need to even write it here in hunter forums.

    The horse has bear marks; not cougar. I'm surprised that the horses itself met a bear encounter this close considering they spend most of the time in the open pastures. I was around the horses for 2 years on hobby farm; they rarely stray under woods or any dense vegetation, their preference is always and has been open pastures.

    Our oldest son has a hobby farm with boarded horses. We found out the hard way that horses and loud noises don't mix. Too bad we can't use suppressors. I wasn't going to buy a Bear tag this year,but,because that's close to my stompin' grounds,I just changed my mind.

    Why worry about scaring the horses, by shooting rifles. Does no one bow hunt for bears?

    Yes I guess you have try to explain how all cat/human interactions result in dead people. If your comments were true, then there would be more dead hikers then deer every year.

    To bow hunt Bears,we need to be able to set up bait stations. With the new baiting rules requiring special permissions from landowners and nearby residences and road/trail distance tolerances,except in certain rare circumstances,that makes baiting virtually impossible in this section of the province. Spot and stalk is nearly the only option which needs long range knock-down power,generally, the toughest way to hunt,real tricky in populated farm country.

    You have bait on the hoof, what more do you need?

    It seems you are still beating around the comment you made: cougars = dead people.
    I was in the Rockies myself several times,and met many people living there,out in the bush,on several occasion. None ever was ever worried about cougars.But they all carried big guns,and talked a lot about grizzlies.Bear is a bear.By any means i do not say cougars are not dangerous-but i believe if someone makes a "not so friendly"remark,could fess up and stand up for the remark,or stand down.Not to go avoidance ways and beat around the bush..........
    Now for the hunters" who suppose to know about bear giving enough warning of its surroundings" on THIS forum ,so there is no need to write about it here in hunter forums -you implied-why not ask the poor souls "HERE"in Ontario,which ones have been mauled and /or killed by black bears ,without any warning.Upon request i can list publicized cases from the last 10 years or so.
    Oh,and by the way-the cases will be from Mid north-Central Ontario,none from way up North.

    If the poor horse,who seems to have a bear jumped on its back ( bear jumping on a tall ,fast ,potentially very aggressive horse)could talk.......................

    SALEM, Ore. - Oregon wildlife officials with guns and dogs will hunt for a cougar believed to have killed a woman while she was hiking in rugged terrain near the state's highest peak, a wildlife official said Wednesday.Diana Bober, who at 55 was an avid and experienced hiker, apparently fought the cougar with repellant, a sharp object and a stick, her sister said.
    Bober's body was found Monday, almost two weeks after she was last heard from. She was the first person known to have been killed by a cougar in the wild in Oregon, and the second in the Pacific Northwest this year.
