      Tabitha, Bears are not endangered.

      While your passion for what you believe to be true is admirable, I’m thinking you are relatively new to our country and would benefit from an English class focusing on the proper use of grammar and punctuation. Instead of simply blowing you off as ignorant, people will pay more attention to what you have to say if you concentrate on your presentation.

      As it is, your posting will be seen as laughable and easy to dismiss. I’m certain that does not please you and that you would like very much to be thought well of even by people who don’t agree with your positions. Please think seriously about taking that class.

      I ate black bear, Sitka deer, white tail deer, Axis deer, and wild turkey on 1Nov. at a wild game meal to raise money for a very small school in the Hill country of Texas. If you would read something other than left wing PC BS you would know there are more black bears in this country than at any time. You may be correct that Black Beer may be endangered.

    • metro143

      Tabitha are you a vegetarian? Well then. Even plants are living. Do you eat beef, chicken, pork or fish. What’s the difference? For everything under the sun has a purpose. It’s the cycle of life. I go hunting almost every year. You know what? I don’t like killing the animal either. I just go because I enjoy watching the animals. But hunting does have a useful place in creating stronger herds of wildlife.

      • Gustavo

        How is it useful in creating the strongest herd? Evolution is about -“Survival of the fittest” – yet we always enjoy and brag to our buddies about killing the fittest,strongest and largest animal out there.
        To make a stronger herd would be to take out the weakest ones.

    • pcsretired1

      Actually there are more black Bear now than there were one hundred years ago.
      In some area’s they are over populated.

      • angryplbr

        Yep, Just like that Canadian goose that never flies south of Denver anymore. Eat, Poop, Reproduce repeat,repeat,repeat. Heaven forbid we might use that fowl to feed people and gasp, control the goose population all at the same time.

  • DLCraig

    Congratulations Daniel… A years long hunt concluded with a fine showing; I’m certain your father would be well pleased. To have taken your prize with his rifle is very fitting; a trusted and venerable weapon in the hands of a son that honors the memory of a trusted and revered father.

  • Dominic De Falco

    And the purpose of killing this animal was for what? I don’t know anyone that eats Black Bear!

    • Todd Clippard

      Bears can be killed for many reasons: conservation, livestock protection, income for conservation depts, sport (pelt), and especially meat! Speaking from experience, bears meat is delicious. Five seconds of time and a simple Google search could have prevented your ignorant outburst.

      • Dominic De Falco

        You’re ignorant. No where in the article does it state why. It was an honest question. The article does say:

        “According to the state Game Commission, the first two days of the four-day statewide bear season produced a harvest of 2,044 black bears, down slightly from 2,086 during the same period in 2012.

        Last year, hunters killed 3,632 bears over four days – the third-largest total in state history. The most kills came in 2011 when hunters took 4,350 bears.”

        • Jay Star

          Kind of shows how fast they multiply, does’t it? I would be more concerned about saving my a $$ from an out of control government than worrying for no reason about the black bear population!

          • Dominic De Falco

            It was a legitimate question but instead of getting answers I get questions, smartass answers and bashing. I think this site may have been taken over by Liberal posters!

          • suz

            No it just showed how smart the bears were to avoid the hunters

        • Todd Clippard

          Dominic, the article was explicit as to why the bear was shot… IT WAS BEAR SEASON. Why are the people defending hunting and opposing ignorant questions labeled as liberals? What is wrong with you people?

          • Dominic De Falco

            Why do people call others Ignorant instead of giving them an answer to their question? Is every human on edge to the point that they just lash out at any given question that does not suit them?

          • Todd Clippard

            Dominic, I did answer your question in both of my first posts. You complain about calling others “ignorant,” yet you called me ignorant. I did not call you ignorant, but rather said your question was the result of ignorance. So perhaps I am to blame since I used the word first. Nevertheless, those of us who hunt, for whatever legal and legitimate reason, do not like our actions or character being called into question by anti-hunters, of which you appear to be one.

          • Dominic De Falco

            Nice Liberal Speak. No you did not directly call me ignorant, you implied it by stating “your ignorant outburst”. In order for someone to have a ignorant outburst, one must be ignorant or it would not exist in the first place. It was a legitimate and honest question and because no one had the balls to answer the question truthfully and instead wanted to take offense to the question and lash out, it shows the character of those which greatly reminds me of Liberals and their liberal speak!

          • Dominic De Falco

            Since humans fit the same bill as bears except maybe eating one although I no more want to eat a bear as I do not want to eat a human. So that being said, we should now have a hunting season on humans. We can cull the population, we can get rid of starvation by limiting humans so their is more food for everyone. We can start with prison inmates, then move to worthless welfare recipients, then clean out the Ghetto’s. More food for everyone, less taxes, less crime! Win, win for everyone!

          • 11Hotel

            Spoken like a true secular humanist and PETA type. I am sure the type of killing you condone has to do with unborn children.

          • Dominic De Falco

            PETA, the biggest killer of all animals except human animals! PETA is a huge hypocritical joke like yourself. You would condone killing any of Gods creatures except human animals! What makes you so special? You missed the satire and the point… Over population of a habitat and unnecessary killing of all animals! (If you did not know, humans are animals. Mammals just like bears!)

    • my.hairy.mole@gmail.com

      Apparently you don’t get out of the house much, do you???

      • Dominic De Falco

        Stupid replies for justification without answering the question and questions posted in response to a question…. Well thats very Liberal of you!

        • FrankC

          Legitimate Reasons: 1. a population for a given animal is exceeding the ability of that area to support it. 2. The animal is dangerous or is in some other way a threat to the community. 3. The reverse side of 1, a predator is depleting the populations of one or more animals that are critical to the region.

          • Dominic De Falco

            Hmm, 1.) Humans are exceeding the ability of any given area. 2.) Humans are dangerous or is in some other way a threat to the community and animal habitats. 3. Sounds like the same thing happening to the caucasian race yet caucasians are not out shooting the other races.

          • FrankC

            Humans have the ability to transport food into one area from another area. Humans have the ability to cultivate and produce food. Your 3rd one there does not make a lot of sense so we will leave that one to dangle in the breeze, unless you are trying to point out that the white folks don’t run around shooting up the place.

          • Dominic De Falco

            The fact that humans are more evolved than wild animals does not change the fact that all animals should have the same rights to live and deal with their own population and habitat problems as they did before humans. The 3rd one was based on the fact that the caucasian race is on the 50 generation extinction list cause solely by humans themselves!

      • Dominic De Falco

        Apparently we live in a nation of people that would like to be just smart arses instead of teachers!

    • Talltrees

      I agree. This is truly sad. People will eat anything, even bears.

      Please no comments from hunters. Neither side wins. Hunters don’t give in. I don’t give in. Don’t waste your time on me. By the way, I am very, very conservative.

      • larrygrant876

        And at the end of it all, your point was?

        • Talltrees

          My point was I am always saddened when I hear about hunters killing wild animals.

          If you are a hunter, I know all the reasons hunters say they hunt. I researched why hunters hunt from it’s human instinct to sport. I know about land conservation, food for their families, wildlife overpopulation management, hunting gear and rifle sales boosting business, fur and skins, taxidermy, wolves, coyotes killing cattle, bears entering backyards, small wild animal destruction; therefore, don’t waste your time going into it. I have heard all of it.

          All of what has been said is a human created problem, not wildlife. Over development of land by humans is one of them, leaving wildlife smaller and smaller places to live. Killing their natural predators to the point of extinction, such as down to 300 wolves in the 1960’s.

          I’m not against owning guns for protection or target shooting, I encourage it, just dislike killing wild animals when there are other methods to manage them humanely.

          I got into this discussion on another site and was innundated with the same arguments into the wee hours of the morning, not to mention name calling. I don’t campaign against hunting. Go ahead and hunt, I try not to think about it unless an article such as this appears. I certainly don’t lose sleep over it.

          Members of my family are deer hunters and we discussed it, as well. Received the same arguments from them. Both sides have valid points as the animal situation is currently. My state is overpopulated with deer. To control immediately is to hunt them. A better way is using a fertility vaccine developed in conjunction with the Humane Society. It has been successfully tested on 1600 wild horses. I’d rather they not be born, then killed. Hunters would be against it because then they’d wouldn’t be permitted to hunt.

          The deer in my state are overpopulated because they have no predators such as wolves, which at one time were inhabiting my state.

          I live in an area where bears come down from the mountains into our backyards because people put their garbage outside. We find all kinds of wild animals. No one or dog has been hurt in the many years this has been occurring. Normally, the bears run away when seeing humans. If not, they are taken back into the mountains and released. None of my neighbors want the bears killed.

          Anyone else here wants to argue with me, I won’t answer. Been there, done that.

            Talltrees, I am guessing you to be Native American, and you probably have the best grasp on a view of nature and man and animals place in it, I respect that. I don’t hunt, never have but I am a carnivore.

        Hunting is away good way of controlling the wildlife populations. Without it, Wildlife can over populate and be detrimental to the wildlife population.

          For many years in my neck of the woods there was this game protected fenced game preserve for deer.The government would open it up every couple of years to deer hunters to kill off over populated deer.There were to many for the reserve to feed the over population of deer.I’m sure this happens in a lot of states.

    Is it possible that Daniel murdered this poor bear just to make tabitha, dominic and jlp angry? Just because you do not hunt or fish or enjoy target shooting that does not make these sports wrong. But then everything that liberals don’t like is wrong. Maybe someone should use libtards for the “knock-out” game then they would speak out against this nationwide problem instead of trying to bother a hunter.

  • Robert Courtney

    I used to be an avid hunter, up til about 1984. I found myself having problems giving the game away, (except deer. Had an Amish family take all the deer, give me back 30 lbs smoked sausage. Good trade, I sez. Great sausage for the Super Bowl, too) as I prefer grocery store meats, not so much wild game.
    However, I will eat it if that’s what I have. Rabbit, squirrel, turkey, dove deer, and yes, bear. I lived in PA for 5 years and did take a black bear once. Not as big as this one. I have eaten bear, but the one I took was rug fodder. Have eaten racoon, groundhog, pheasant, duck, goose, quail, elk, Muley, and even had a Moose stew in Montana back in 1987. Had to try Buffalo, and some Kangaroo in Denver in the mid 80’s.

    Anyway, I no longer hunt, but if I need to to survive, I will do so without a problem.
    Same with fishing. Don’t like to eat fish, so catch and release since 1992. But, again, if I had to survive, eating fresh fish would not be a problem.

    Down here in Florida, black bears have become pests, like white tails, feral hogs and coyotes. They wonder through suburban neighborhoods, raiding garbage cans, breaking into houses, killing livestock and threatening pets. So far none has seriously attacked a person though one bear did chase a woman from her yard into her home. Hunting is a legitimate way to manage the bear population. The people who whine about taking out bears have never had live with them and they probably feel the same way about taking out rattlesnakes.

    • Chief RedEagle

      Well I never killed a bear but while I was in the military in northern Minnosota way back when I was put on garbage detail.We went down to the dump and there were brown bears all over that dump well the driver said”Get out and open the tailgate so we can push the trash out of the truck I said theres no way in hell i’m getting out there while all them bears are out their”.And I didn’t either.P.S. those were the first bears I had ever seen.

          Thank you for your comment on hunting. If you read carefully, nothing is ever done for the fun of it. With hunters, you will notice that when animals are killed, like this giant bear, the leftovers make great fertilizer for to satisfy the need of you insatiable vegetable eaters.

          And at least we hunters have the decency to mount our animals in our living rooms in gratitude, not like you veggie eaters who throw your veggie leftovers down the disposal.

      The “fun” is in the challenge of the chase, not the actual killing. As finding and killing your quarry means the game is over and the work of getting it out of the woods and butchered begins.
      That is definitely not fun……

      • Fran

        When the Jews brought animals to the priest’s to sacrifice to God to atone for their sins they were Animals and not roses.God gave us certain Animals to eat as food.I also respect life and I respect Animals but I like Two Eggs over easy and pork sausage and toast for my breakfast.Meat is for eating.Most animals or for eating.

      • Birdog

        Scripture teaches that Mankind is the “care taker” of the planet. We started eating meat in good doses from the time when Noah landed after the Great Flood. God Himself told Noah and his family to eat the flesh of animals. They are a resource that we manage. That said; Mankind is superior to the animal kingdom. Jesus Christ did not die on the Cross for “Bambi”; but for you and me. Sinners in need of a Savior…In Christ Alone.

My intent was to tell everyone to enjoy all creatures visually domestically and in the wilds.

    • Chief RedEagle

      Racism is what it is just plain racism cause no Polar bears were killed

  • GM Thatcher

    is it a .30-60 or a .30-06?

  • Joe Warren

    I assume .30-60 is a misprint for .30-06. Even then, it’s pretty remarkable to kill an animal this big and dangerous with a gun of this relatively small caliber.

    • OldNorthState

      The venerable ’06 is a versatile, effective hunting weapon for a good variety of medium to larger North American game, including black bear. This .30 caliber round might not be my first choice for grizzly, necessarily, but with proper bullet selection and more than a modicum of shooting/hunting knowledge and skill, it’s still a pretty darn good old cartridge… certainly way above and beyond the league of, say, your Granddad’s ol’ “thutty-thutty” (which even though a modest round ballistically, has itself probably taken more whitetails in this country than most other calibers). The .30-’06 is also a good caliber for reloading enthusiasts, with many options for bullet weight and construction for diverse uses. I still prefer it, particularly due to those variations/options options, even to the .308 Win., which is a great round, itself.

      • Joe Warren

        If I’d known in advance I was going to come across an animal this big and dangerous, I would have said .375 H&H Magnum or .458 Winchester Magnum. That’s 20/20 hindsight, of course.

      A .30-06 with a 230g bullet will EASILY take down anything on our continent to include polar bears.
      I think this bear was being fed and fattened up by locals. Just like some of those monster wild hogs that been going around the net. Biologists determined there wasn’t enough natural forage for those hogs to get that large. A few locals fessed up.

    Now we see some real Black Bear hunting instead of Polar Bear hunting.

    I don’t hunt anymore because I hunted humans in Vietnam. But… If I have to shoot something to survive and eat, I’ll shoot anything except a human or a vegetable.

  • Whackajig

    Aren’t there more suitable targets to kill other than beautiful animals? Go to DC lots of targets there.

    I have taken Black bears here in Wasington State.Not a record or as big Also Deer and Elk. I like wild meat. However, Bear certainly doesn’t taste like beef in this atate. More like wild pork. Also the bear I have dressed and skinned, once the skin is off, it looks almost like a man hanging there. If I have a tag, and bump into one, he goes into my freezer. also some jars. What I like best is the Elk, and Mule or White Tail Deer. Both Deer are in Eastern Washington. The Black Tail, in Western Washington, do not taste as good, and are much smaller. I rarely shoot one of those. My choice of weapons to hunt, a 54 caliber black powder rifle, or a 7MM rifle, a Husquvarna. Swedish, they don’t make them anymore. I bought that rifle in 1967 when I was home on leave, and had a 3-9 scope put on it hope I spell this right) a Leopuold. . It will easily reach out to 800 yards. I have done it many times. Also in Wyoming with Antelope. I still hunt for the years meat. I am 72 years old, born in 1941. I still work climbing ladders, pulling wire, installing conduit, still fish, still hunt, still scuba dive, and try to wqlk up to six miles each day, if I have the time.

    You could at least check your copy :

    When he went hunting on the second day of bear season, Covington Twp. resident Daniel Beavers found himself reaching for his father Jacob’s .30-06 rifle instead of his usual choice, a 12-gauge shotgun.( the above as quoted from time tribune news story)(http://thetimes-tribune.com/sports/covington-twp-man-bags-772-pound-bear-in-lackawanna-county-1.1592124)

    30-06 NOT .30-60 ( there is such a rifle, just not as popular)

  • Jeff Gabel

    Bears have been used for food for hundreds of years and longer. I believe it was Davy Crockett that helped save an army that was having trouble with supplies therefore their ability to fight, by taking a party out and killing a bunch of bears for food.
    Bears can also be dangerous and a severe pest. The only caution with the meat is it is like pork and needs to be cooked thoroughly due to parasites.
    I have had bear jerky and it was very tasty but that’s the only bear I have eaten.
    One complainer in this comment section keeps ranting about hunting for fun. The hunter in this story never said he was hunting only for fun. I suspect this bear will be processed and used for a variety of things.
    Hunting is a very good way to provide food for the family. Hunting keeps one in practice for if that need becomes critical.
