Common sense prevails !! I grew up hunting in or around the fakahatchee strand in south florida and bear back in the 70's and 80's were common and by the time I moved from florida they were more than a problem in some areas down south . Hunting is the only way to control herd size of any game when state wide when game numbers are high state wide .
Besides bear stews kind of tasty .
Now here in NC there are some 340 plus bears taken each year in part of the 3 or 4 county area around Mt Mitchell and they still don't keep them under control , number skeep growing .
