New spring bear guidelines in 2018?
« on: May 31, 2017, 08:36:36 PM »
I'm sure you guys noticed that the 2018 spring bear info in the regs is not there and they say spring hunts will be announced in November.  Any inside info or speculation of what changes might be coming?

Based on the trend,  the season will be broken up into quality, boar, and any bear hunts with a premium price for hunts during the 5/15-6/15.....basically any way to pinch more $$ out of us.

I thought of a way they can make more money, it came to me after seeing a bear 500 yards in the wrong unit.  Pay an extra 16.00 for multiple units to hunt if drawn, up to 2 or three??  Your probably right high country, for options coming soon??

Every GMU that has bears should have at least a few spring permits. It's ridiculous that they don't. We've had baiting and hound hunting taken away, there's no reason they can't offer a lot more spring bear permits to help make up for it.

:yeah:  I agree 100%  look at the blues in Oregon and how many they still give out.  All the north central units would make great hunts.  One could only hope

A new hunt will come, an old one will go away.

If they're truly interested in management this should be the case.  I hope my pessimism is wrong...
