What do you think of the idea of issuing a second bear tag to resident hunters? Since most of the province's bears are shot by non-resident hunters, I don't think it would make a huge dent in the growing population.
The two tag idea would be another way for the gov to generate a bit more revenue, not much but every bit helps. Perhaps the second tag could be directed towards areas where there are higher numbers of problem bears.
