:) I guess the answer depends on whether posting something that a certain percentage of the population may have a problem with equates to being rude, obnoxious, ignorant or any combination of them.

Anyway, I am in agreement with Bingo. I miss hockey... Debating bear baiting is getting old.


on that note; PA and NHL at the table today...nothing financial being discussed...wtf :crazy:

Even if you agree with shooting bears for shits n' giggles one would have to admit that "baiting" is fucking lazy. What kind of a "hunt" is that? If you want to go hunting, get off your privileged ass and do it right. Nothing ethical about trophy hunting in the slightest, its not even remotely respectable. Its one step away from hunting in a zoo.

You're forgetting the key part of hunting ....the "hunt". Going out to the wilderness and searching for your own. Thats hunting. What Booth did is pathetic. Its not a "man's" sport, its rich men feeding their egos but can't be bothered getting cold, wet & possibly failing.

The after photos are disrespectful at best.

Hats off to Clam Russell, right on mate. I was actually talking about the whole Booth bear bating thing with this buddy of mine who is a seasoned, licensed, ethical bear hunter and he pretty much says in not so many words that bear baiting is not respectable sport hunting. Like Clam says, it's about the 'Hunt'. There is no sport in bear baiting.

Obvious Clam and the Dude have no clue about a kill shot with a bow on a 700lb bear and would much rather see the bear roaming the bush looking like a porcupine.

They are also ignorant to the use of pheromone sprayed decoys and rut calls to lure game for rifle hunting.

Rather romantic and nostalgic the idea tracking an animal by its hoof/paw prints and scat through the woods and then hefty out the carcass 3 miles to the road.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

You are not safe from a bear in a tree stand.....really not safe with an Ill placed shot and a wounded panicked bear.

I went and helped a friend with a wounded bear in sayward thick nasty forest. I had a 12guage ..pulled out the plug and had slug,ssg,slug,ssg slug....I was fucking scared and we never found him..but when something can rip you to pieces it us very humbling. The bear was hit with a bow, my friend was up on a big stump deer hunting, this bear got on his scent trail and was going to climb the stump even after my friend tried to scare him off..it was self defence.

Shite. Topper is like Grizzly Adams. I am stumped. I guess it's alright to hang out in a tree, in camo, bear baitin in Topper's redneck world.

You have done nothing to refute his points. Perhaps your friend needs to participate in this thread.

Anyhoo until they domesticate bears with the bear farms that would bring, carry on Mr Booth!

Well in all fairness Blob, he did nothing to refute mine. Perhaps I am nostalgic, he says we're ignorant on a sidebar-whatever, I maintain firmly that baiting is the act of a narcissistic coward with too much time & money.

In my part of the world they are called grow ops.
