    my first thought was "does this guy live in northern ontario?"
    i can only speak of experience of only a few years up there. In sudbury, most of the people I ran into hunt or have family members who hunt regularly. The folks who hunted did not hunt for trophy. they hunted because they liked to shoot and they liked to eat.
    Most folks who i lived near and worked alongside of were not afraid of guns or being out in the woods knowing that a hunter could be there, so the whole canoeist and outdoor enthusiast argument doesn't seem to hold water to me. Even when there wasn't a hunting season, you usually expected to see someone on crown land shooting clays or targets. it's just such a part of outdoor life and from what I gathered, just accepted as a fact of life and no big deal.

    All in all it really feels like its a southern Ontario city dwellers argument looking to control what northern folks do when they have very little investment there.

    What an utter crock of chit. From the header and through each paragraph it became more and more obvious what his agenda was. I really have my doubts if this twit was actually a hunter with the bs he assumes.

    Like Fishhog said the bear population is plenty stable and healthy, no one shoots a sow with cubs so there are no issues at all.
    Bear hunting does not need more regulation like you seem to think for some bizarre reason. Hey lets prohibit spot and stalk hunting up in blueberry country or logged areas up north.

    With your suggestion about mis- identification of Moose being in the first few sentences I think your onto something here. Every year in my area WMU 60 there are scores of Moose shot by mistake Bulls, for Cows,yearlings for calf,s and so forth,so your onto something here.Because a poster on here is of the opinion that populations are stable does not make it a fact.If no one shot a sow with cubs you would not have lost the Spring bear hunt back when Premier Harris caved into the anti hunters? I did not say that bear hunting needed more regulations,simply that those suggested were pretty good.The scaling back of the hunt comes with the following suggestion which you might not have read in your rage "It is therefore recommended that the length of the fall season should be reassessed, particularly the start date.

    If only the Conservatives had not screwed up this whole thing for us hunters we would not even be having this debate.
