Our rapidly growing bear population is putting all other wild life in jeopardy... our current bear season coincides with local deer seasons and makes hunting more dangerous due to deer and bear hunters hunting same areas... and we have a late deer season, compared to most states... which makes hunting them tougher due poor whether and in activity In the animal. A bear season that didn't coincide with deer season would generate more revenue for the state, in both state jobs like game wardens and in added tourism from travel. Expansion and over population is both increasing unwanted human animal contact and disease In problem areas. Starving young animals and sick animals tend to wander into town looking for easy food.. ie trash cans... ie livestock.. ie plum and apple orchards... We as humans need have an open mind and if taking the weak from the herd feeds a family and strengthens the herd then isn't harvesting the animal considered conservation? Animals killed in the process of hunting are more often treated with respect, or should be. With the aim of feeding families and conserving our future healthy bear in mind at all times... I propose a spring bear season... late may through June archery. July August rifle
