    WY Proposed Grizzly season

    http://www.jhnewsandguide.com/news/e...a4fb494c0.html

    The first Wyoming grizzly bear hunt in over four decades will target 24 animals if commissioners who oversee the the state's wildlife sign off on a proposal released Friday.

    A topic of fierce controversy, the hunt is being devised in a way that state officials hope limits the chance of the bold large carnivore being shot in public view, or killed adjacent to Grand Teton National Park. A no-hunting zone will abut the east boundary of the park, and throughout the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem it will be illegal to kill a grizzly within a half-mile of a named highway, Wyoming Game and Fish Department Chief Warden Brian Nesvik said.

    ?The intention is to address public concern that was focused on there being hunting and wildlife viewing going on at the same time,? Nesvik said.

    Half of the overall statewide quota ? 10 male bears and two females ? is being distributed among six hunt zones that fall within a 19,279-square-mile ?demographic monitoring area? in the Yellowstone region?s core. Another 10 boars and two sows will be targeted outside this area, in outskirts reaches of the ecosystem where the federal government is not imposing limits on hunting.

    The rules on hunting outlined in the draft regulations greatly differ inside and outside of the monitoring area, which encompasses Jackson Hole.


    To ensure no more than two female bears are killed, a maximum of two hunters at a time will be allowed afield within the monitoring area.


    ?People will put in for a license, but we will only take the top two on the list,? Nesvik said. ?They would essentially be able to choose any of those six hunt areas up until the time either the female mortality limit is reached, or the sub-quota for that particular area is reached.?

    Outside of the monitoring area, the dozen hunters who draw a license will not be subject to the same two-at-a-time system. Carrying the state-issued texting device will also not be required outside the monitoring area.

    ?Outside the DMA,? Nesvik said, ?we?ll issue licenses like we would an elk area.?


    The legal season for grizzly bears will be mid-September through mid-November, and the state has for now ruled out a springtime hunt, which exists for black bears.

    Really just an amazing Grizzly Bear success story, to even be in the position to offer 24 tags. Probably a good idea to try and limit interaction between hunters and the general public.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    Hopefully we get to see some big bears taken and hope the politics don't get in the way of a quality hunt.
    I don't like the plan to keep hunters out of site from road areas.
    It makes it seem like there's something to hide or like we are ashamed of something.
    I understand the worry though. We don't need a unsavory YouTube flick or a shocked liberal millionaire lawer to start pulling for a hunter hanging.

    I agree but after the Cecil the Lion uproar I can understand why...sort of.

    I can't wait, my money is already burning a hole in my pocket. Any word on if they will limit the method of take? Like they do Buffalo .270 caliber and bigger, and what about bows? Just a few questions i had. But if there is one tag i would like it's this one for sure!

    Maybe the $600 resident fee... no way I would pay $6 grand for any tag! I’ll let the rich guys duke it out for those overpriced tags
