Don’t Feed the Bears!

July 18, 2012 – 08:42 am

This past weekend we attended the Sheltowee Trace Association’s Annual Conference. This year the conference was held at the Sandstone Arches Restaurant at Natural Bridge. One of the keynote speakers was with the Ky. Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources and presented on black bears in Kentucky. Over the next few days I’ll make several posts with information regarding black bears specifically in our state.

Today I’d like to remind everyone that feeding black bears in Kentucky is illegal.




The following is from the website of Ky. Dept of Fish and Wildlife:

Feeding bears is the worst thing that people can do when it comes to creating human-bear conflicts. Bears are extremely intelligent and quickly learn to associate people with food. When this occurs, bears may become habituated to people and lose their natural fear of humans, which creates potentially dangerous situations. Keep in mind the following notes if you see people feeding bears:

Food-conditioned bears live considerably shorter lives than wild bears.

Habituated bears are often killed by poachers or struck by vehicles because they frequent residential areas.

Nature is not tame

Explain how mellow black bears are to the guy in Kentucky who was mauled by one a month or so ago. I'm sure he'll be very sympathetic to your point of view as he undergoes his 5th surgery to attempt to restore some use to his leg.

    I've always been a fisherman and me and my grandpa got into a conversation about hunting the other day... I've only been hunting a couple of times... I asked him if when I got a gun, if I could go hunting on his private l …eastern Kentucky).. Anyways... Which should I choose and why? I know a lot of people might say the pump... But I don't really like the pumps, I like just the simple guns with break action... But list your reasons, etc...

    • I would defiantly say the .22/20 gauge because if you are planing on squirrel hunting it does not really take much skill to get one with a shotgun and kind of kills the sport of it. no offense intended. also .22 ammo is d …se the projectile travels an unsafe distance. the fact that the gun you are looking at doubles as a .22 is really cool. if im thinking about the right type of gun it is a trapping gun. i think that would be your best bet.
