The commission is meeting on the 4th to discuss this. Looks like the proposal is for a VERY limited season. Steps in the right direction!

It will probably be as ridiculous as the length of red snapper season,
But anything I guess is better than nothing.

Couple of publicized bear attacks didn't hurt.
Now... Can we get some red snapper to attack some humans?

Always have to start somewhere. It will probably be something like Alligator season.

I wonder what you'd do with a bear? Are they good to eat? Skull mount and a rug?
About the color of horse meat, maybe a little darker. Taste was strong to me like mixed dark greens and a bit tuff. It was a bear taken in Vermont. Don't know about Fla bear. Don't think I want a second try at it.

Spring bear is actually pretty good. Fall and winter bear not great but down here they probably would taste like a spring bear because we never have any harsh winters and food is always an abundance.

Taste will depend a lot on diet. This one was already on Salmon for a while, not so good....blueberries in the Alpine, not bad at all.

As far as mounts...Michael Cole has mine now...3/4 mount (had no place for a rug) and the skull of my bear & blacktail together on a table top mount...

I believe I read the proposal is for $100. Sounds like 150 total tags for the 5 BMU's.

I did have bear and cougar at a wild game charity a few years back. They were both pretty good but... alcohol was involved.

Are you talking about the 40-45 day season the STATE has or the federal 8 day season established by the FEDS? Let's place blame where it's due. To be quite honest the state collects most of the data that the federal government than turns around and uses to rape and pillage the local fishing industry. Fortunately the great people of the greater Pensacola area voted with some common sense and kept a man in the HOR that actually cares about all areas of the local economy whereas the idiots around District 2 (Panama City, Tallahassee, etc.) felt the environmental lobbyist/liberal Graham would represent North Florida values better than Southerland who actually sat on HOR committee that dealt with issues related to our local economy as far as the use of natural resources are concerned.

But hey I realize this is a hunting forum and not fishing.
