Bear paws aren’t valuable. I leave them in the woods. Why would you carry out bone and keratin? Zero proteinI think you all see this the same way I do. If bear paws are so valuable, why only take one? If this much illegal trapping is going on inside city limits wouldn't someone notice? If they had all that many tips, why no charges? I don't bear hunt but have a lot of friends that do. One told me about a bear they turned on that would not tree and killed most of their dogs. He said when they killed the bear it was missing a front paw. He said that was probably the reason it would not tree.
If any of these eco warriors ever got off the trail or off their ebikes, they’d understand that a real sportsman deals the most merciful death anything in nature can hope for.
do they think that bears don’t break their ankles in rocks?
do they think that bears don’t get bit by snakes digging in ?
do they think bears don’t literally try to kill each other in a fight?
ive seen two 250# bears fight. It’s a nasty affair that doesn’t really have a winner.
