    For the most part, I like black bear meat. Never ate brown bear and never heard anything good about it. I didn't think anyone actually ate it.

    Bad form.

    If you or your family are starving and you have to put meat on the table then this is acceptable because human survival is at stake. But I'm guessing there was no such desperation involved. While the shoot may have been technically legit, it's the kind of behavior I wouldn't associate myself with as a hunter.

    Buried in a tree or the hill. A deformed bullet, after passing thru an animal, doesn't go near as far/fast. Not saying not dangerous, just not near as dangerous as people make it out to be. Ethical hunters also pay attention to what's beyond their target - 'course don't think these two schmucks count.

    As to the "hunt", definitely don't think it was legal due to the proximity to the road. Troopers can't be expected to know all the F&G laws, but they probably should've called a game warden for a consult.

    The shooters were definitely not making points with people who "don't hunt, but aren't against it" - the majority of people (nationwide), voting people.

    I don't see the sport in this hunt , just a meat haul. I wouldn't have done it.
