Still, what's up with the "shooting bears in their dens"? That's hardly fair chase, is it?

This is dangerous. Using doughnuts and bacon could create a bycatch situation with AK State troopers. I think it's unwise!

If it’s legal and is one of the game departments management tools, why do you care how the animal is killed. I would guess that it is as “humane” as any other method.  :tup:
If it doesn’t fit within your definition of fair chase, then by all means don’t do it!

It is a historic aboriginal method of harvest.  Maybe not fair chase but in a subsistence harvest fair chase kind of goes by the wayside. On the other hand the person that crawls in a bear den has pretty big cajones, IMO. :chuckle:
