I'll agree with you both. I'm all for hunting, but let's do it on fair terms. Shooting a treed critter just doesn't seem too sporting to me. Dog-chased deer hunting used to be popular in Arkansas, but it's fallen from grace, thankfully, over the last few decades. Bear hunting there is done without the aid of dogs, on a very limited basis. As LaughingBear indicated, though, well-intentioned (and/or ill-informed) bear feeders do the bear populations of the world a far greater dis-service than any hunting.

During a good deal of hiking over the last 4-5 months there, I've seen a good bit of bear scat in the Deep Creek canyon, but no bears, yet. I'd sure like to see, and get a picture of, one before I head back home. I'd love to see a mountain lion, but that's a pretty high hope, I'm afraid. I've only found tracks once, and I'm not positive that it wasn't just a large bobcat.
