Educated professionals looking at hard data and suggesting that appropriate measures be taken to maintain a stable population of animals that has clearly reestablished itself and is in no danger of extinction whatsoever? Not gonna happen next year... maybe after 6 more years of appeals and lawsuits!

That would be cool to get the chance to hunt them in the lower 48

Would love to see it. No good reason not to have a season.

I planning on bear hunting in ten days and the biologist tells me I'll probably see more grizzlies than black bears.

Don't hold your breath waiting for a Grizzly hunt to happen. The "Animal rights" groups will be trying to get some liberal judge to issue an injuction with their pool of Lawyers readying a lawsuit to sue the Montana G&F. Just my 2 cents worth.

That's what I also thought when I read the title of this thread.

Maybe the judge and plaintiffs would like to go on a field trip?

Im sure the 'animal rights' groups will fight this all they can but I think we gained alot of ground on them getting wolves delisted and their lawsuits wont hold up as well now.

I think it is only a matter of time before there is a hunt. Just like the wolves. That being said, does anyone know how it would be implemented? I would hope it would be similar to wolves in a quota system and not a special draw or a lottery tag.

Well I'm in glacier now and even just driving through we saw a grizz. (Not huge, about 200 pounds) but still. Biologists say there is well over 1000 grizz around glacier and well over 600 around Yellowstone. We need a season. Just this week in the paper up here a lady was mauled while hiking. We need a season.
