Hunting As A Management Tool with Bear Trust International

April 06, 2022

Hunting as a management tool.

That phrase alone is enough to invoke controversy, however when you apply the scientific lens to it, it is a phrase that is proven true time and time again around the world.

Bear Trust International is an organization that advocates for the sound wildlife management of all species, with a particular focus on bears.

British Columbia alone has an estimated population of 160,000 black bears, making it the highest concentration in North America. B.C has a regulated hunting season, where licenses are required, and bag limits are enforced. There is a mandatory meat removal, and bears are sought after for food, and contrary to some messaging- are delicious and fill a lot of freezers.

Steve and JP have a conversation with Logan Young, Executive Director of Bear Trust International and dispel some myths and hopefully will enlighten just what hunting means to them.

Please listen with an open mind and join the conversation around our Campfire.
