Bear baiting unethical, sends wrong message about hunting

Posted: Thursday, October 28, 2004

If an in-state or Outside hunter harvests a black bear in Alaska, people are going to wonder.

In the future, they might wonder, "Did he have to hike very far?" "How did she track the bear?" or "Was the hunter tired at the end of the hunt?"

Currently, they can wonder, "Did he use stale glazed doughnuts to habituate the bear to one spot?" or "Did he use old bacon grease to make it as easy as possible?"

Let's pass Ballot Measure 3 so no one has to wonder if a bear was taken without fair chase.

Let's raise the bar so all hunters are doing what ethical hunters have done all along.
