The bear group that has been meeting for quite some time, has made some recommendations for bear hunting. Briefly, do away with steel jawed traps Have to use one trap not two Study baiting effects on bear - the list of things seemed rediculous Study trappers and their habits and equipment Yada Yada. I got really ticked off reading the crap coming out of the meeting. The idiot Fisk, heading up the Maine Friends of Animals, is threatening another referendum in 2007 if Mainers don't change their ways. He just doesn't understand that maybe in the last referendum, some Mainers, not the transplanted city slicker antis, had some issues with bear hunting and trapping and hounding, but overall, the vast majority of residents, whether they hunt or not, support it. Why don't theses whackos go spend their time and money doing something worthwhile? Geez!
