This spring I go on my third baited bear hunt. In canada, bears are recognized as a recourse, carefully managed. It would be impossible in New Brunswick (where I go) to spot and stalk, and you cant run dogs. In the thick swamps the bears are usually found in, they are seldom shot or seen without baiting. Long hours in a stand with sitting absolutely still while being attacked by almost unimageneable clouds of black flies and mosquitos takes much more perseverance and discipline than it may seem. Sure, some of the tv shows show very unsportsmanlike behavior, but they sure as hell do more routinely on the punk oriented deer hunting shows that predominate hunting tv.
Usually when I hear one hunter slamming anothers game, he himself doesnt have much to be very proud of.
