I'm pretty much like Mayor Al. I'll kill it if I am going to eat it, or if it is destroying property (raccoons became targets of opportunity after they ate all of my wife's melons out of her garden in one week).
If i was going to hunt bear - and I assume I wouldn't want to eat it, and I know I don't want a rug or a stuffed trophy - it would be for two reasons. One, it's part of regulating the population and if I had a tag, I'm part of the process. Two, it would be for the cameraderie (hope I spelled that right
) of the hunt.
