Connecticut May Open Moose And Bear Seasons

From the Republican American:

The state House voted Wednesday to authorize the hunting of moose and bear. The legislation now heads to the Senate. . . .

The DEP estimates 100 or so moose and near 300 black bear wander the state. Both populations are on the rise.

Biologists say moose may multiply into the thousands within another decade. Bear numbers may be growing by 10 to 20 percent a year.

I'm in school right now

It is nice to hear something about animals that doesn't have to do with numbers declining due to global warming (what?!?) and I hope that Conn. has some really good hunting coming up soon. I just wonder if the tags are goin to cost thousands of dollars...

Good luck with that. I'm a Connecticut resident. We can't even get a Sunday hunting bill passed let alone open up 2 new seasons. I doubt it will clear the Senate, although this is the 1st I heard of it, so maybe the DEP is trying to keep this quiet so the whack jobs don't start coming out of the wood work to protest.

Yeah Dan D.!!

Good luck Dan! I hope you have more luck than we did in NJ. Don't you think the Sierra Club, HRC, Obama and all our other new found liberal friends will come out and support these hunts? It sure seems like they love hunters and gun owners all of a sudden. I won't hold my breath.
