If anyone was hoping to go these islands, a place many say holds the next world record black bear, your pretty much out of luck. The Ministry of Environment has made an announcement that all bears taken on the islands must be compulsory reported to a Ministry officer. Once they hear of 4 bears taken on the islands they will give 72 hours notice that the season will be closed.
The population of bears is growing every year, hunting pressure is low and habitat is plentiful. This move is inspired only by anti-hunting groups, not by management science. Makes me sick.
