Have you ever wanted to hunt a bear? Perhaps you’ve established a bug out location in a woodland area, and want from experience against such a creature. Bears provide a great deal of meat and furs for anyone living off-the-grid, after all. Now’s your chance to do so safely and legally.
Earlier this week, the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission unanimously voted to open up grizzly bear hunting in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. This ruling will allow hunters to kill up to 22 of grizzly bears during the hunting season this fall.
This will be the largest grizzly hunt in the continental united states since the mid-70s. The beastly creature received federal protection when it was put on the Endangered Species List later that decade. About a year ago, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced that Yellowstone areas are no longer under this list, as the population has rebounded to an approximate 700 bears.
The bears are still considered protected. Hunting is restricted in demographic monitoring areas. Only one hunter will be allowed in the zone at a given time. They will be allowed to hunt 10 male bears and one cubless female bear. Hunters will then be allowed to hunt another 12 bears outside of these areas.
