Bozo like soda and Twinkys.

Oh, guess what one of the mighty hunters had on him when he was shot with one of the 7 arrows.........Twinkys and soda.

Apparently some of the bear's blood mysteriously got spilled on the can of soda.

Here is Bozo and Leroy
Give it up already....For christ sake the guy killed the damn bear of a life time the game commission already checked into it and its all good and you want to come on here and run your big mouth. sheer jealousy!!!

No problem at all but, it was fair chase! The guy was hunting saw the bear and shot it! Where did he go wrong? The bear was NEVER tame it was always a wild bear just fed alot by the public in which the game commission stepped in numerous times and told them to stop doing so! If I saw the bear I would of shot it too! Yep even given the history of the bear cause in my eyes the public were the ones in the wrong not the hunter!!!

Just a matter of time until that bear hurt/killed someone since it had little fear of humans. Just run out of food or make a mistake feeding him and it could be big trouble in a hurry.

Better him be a trophy now than put down for an attack later.

Doug you are as bad as the public who were feeding the damn thing its whole life!! Doing more harm than good! This was a WILD let me say that again WILD ANIMAL NOT TAME, that making it fair chase. The guy was on state game lands in the woods hunting black bear and I do believe that is what he saw a bear of a lifetime! It was not in a fence, did not have a guy riding it, did not have a name tage on it, no one was taking it on a walk by mistake in bear season, something tells me the damn bear was in his home(the wilderness). You people kill me . Ill say it again and again and again.....Hell of a job to the hunter!!! Shame on the public for doing what the game commission told them not to do over and over and over again now you guys want to bitch and moan about it!

I don't consider 50 yards from a dumpster filled with doughnuts fair chase.
Dumpster, restaurant, garbage can, or bird feeder are all legit occurding to the PGC.
