    Bears are very difficult to hunt. They cover much ground, are stealthy, nocturnal to some degree, etc. etc. How many times have you seen a bear (one that isn't accustomed to humans and visiting shelters) while hiking? Bait and dogs are allowed so that the population can be managed. Don't forget hunting licenses, fees, taxes on equipment and many other hunting sources of revenue are used to preserve lands.

    But I had no idea that bear hunting with a pack of dogs was a thing up north. To just send them off and then track them by GPS? That seems incredibly irresponsible, especially in light of this article.
    "The sound of gunfire, off in the distance - I'm used to it now" Planting this Talking Heads lyric into your response should not go unnoticed. Bravo!
