Do bear hunters just hunt for the hide?
I'm an avid deer and elk hunter that always has a bear tag while hunting. The liberals outlawed hound hunting so the populations are growing and I'm bound to run into one sometime, but don't target them.
I am wondering if people hunt bears for just the hide or if the hide is secondary to the meat. I suppose that for some hunters the hide is secondary while for others the meat is secondary.
In your opinion do the majority of bear hunters hunt for the hide or for the meat?
Is it poor form to waste the meat because you only wanted the hide?
