Fair Chase? Not Even Close….

Ursus Americanus

Just when you think you’ve heard it all, last year a trophy hunter in Colorado tracked a 700 lb. black bear  back to its den, waited awhile for the bear to come out and then crawled into its den and shot it.

I just can’t wrap my mind around this. I mean who does that?

I couldn’t bring myself to post the grinning  picture, you can see it in the links below. Its just too sad.

Now Colorado is going to ban shooting bears in their dens. Good. But for godsakes do you have to pass a law banning something that should never happen in the first place? Is it so important to get the biggest and the best, that you’d actually crawl into a bears den and kill it  just to achieve that? I will never understand this, never!!
