Tired of hearing people complain about dog bans. Your probably going to hate this but someone needs to say it, I think its good they dont let people use dogs for bears. Oh yea 3-5 dogs surround a bear and it climbs a tree, oohh now thats hunting. Hunt the bear one on one, no cheating what is this the east cost with food plots and crap! I saw 5 black bear last year in trinity without a dog! Dont get me wrong I'm a huge hunter but I think if your good enough and have the skills you can still get one. The bear has relied on its skills to survive through the toughest of times and how to stay alive and find food, we have gotten lazy by relying on things like dogs and fancy ways to trick animals, our ancestors had all those skills way back when to survive, hunt, and live with much less, and now we've lost those skills. I'm sure your all going to love this to, but In my mind all animals shot on private land or off a food plot, or bait should not be allowed in any record book. People have forgotten the meaning of hunting, its for food and to feed your family not for some stupid A$% record to go in a book or to tell everyone how much you killed this year. Alot of people hunt for the wrong reason and i'm just tired of it. you wonder why so many people are against it.
