I'm surprised nobody is talking about this. It won't be official until May, but I think it will pass.

Do you think this is good or bad? Any of you going to apply for a tag? I think I might. Draw odds will be quite bad, worse than big horn sheep.

I think it's a good thing.

We're in. $600 for us is the chance at a once in a lifetime bear hunt. Sounds like it will be really regulated by G&F and perhaps field staff out with you, makes for no outfitter needed if out of the wilderness areas and there should be plenty of opportunity out of wilderness areas.
Just waiting on the lawsuits now.

6000k for nonresident. I thought I read 24 tags, seems lite. Iíd be willing to bet there are more than 1500 in the lower 48.

It's a conservative quota and that's probably smart. They have no hunting data for the area. If females get wacked at a high rate, the popualtion could crash. If males can be effectively targeted, the population will probably increase. No one knows what hunters will harvest until they are given a chance.

Pretty sure I read 24 tags but hunting ceased if (low) female quota reached. BOBO will know the specifics.
Glad they are doing it, but Iím not interested at that price for that hunt. Many will be though.

It's 24 tags at most. Twelve in each of the two units. The second female killed in the DMZ, will end the season in that zone, even if it's just two bears. Gender doesn't matter outside the DMZ.

I havenít really kept up, Iím actually shocked they have it out so quickly.

God speed to the first guy that tries it with bow, would be fun to play with generations of zero fear bears. Hell of feat if someone gets it done. Hat tip to them.

Iíll wait until they get a little healthier respect for humans.

All the leading biologist said atleast twice that, because the method they used over estimated sow range required and the counting model already insured they did not overguess populations estimates on an animal in ES protection.

Steven Reinella Meat eater pod cast has some excellent guests on the subject.

Maybe 1500 in the entire lower 48 but not in Wyoming. Our biologist have been monitoring them for years just waiting for delisting.
Hunters will be drawn and put on a list for the 2 Yellowstone hunting areas. They will allow 2 hunters out at a time and closely monitor sow take.
These bears have shown up in some new areas as of late and sightings in Colorado are starting to get more frequent in the northern part of the state. Big bears roaming the sage flats.
Think of the combo hunt that would be possible, grizzly bears and wolves. We've got wolves down here by Laramie now with credible sightings much more often and shots taken at big black wolf west of Laramie.

It will be interesting to watch how this plays out.
