Watch this Video right until the end. This guy has to be retarded, wouldnt suprise me if he posts another video of him jumping on a bears back. As if anti-hunters dont have enough stupid hunting videos to watch and try to stop us from enjoying our rights and heritage!

Saskatchewan allows you to kill a bear just about any way you can dream up. I've saw videos with bear spearing which were much worse. You are right about the antis loving crap like this but it's legal and there are lots of people that will try anything.

It is ilegal in Saskabush to hunt with a spear or knife. There was an outfitter charged for allowing clients to spear bears. Wild video, he has a bigger set than I do, not condoning it just stating!

I would like to have seen the bear knock him up the side of his head with his paw.....
Idiot
Why would you want to see that?? Hunters always have a way to say "idiot" when its not "their" preferred method of killing an animal. I'm not saying its right or wrong but if its legal then have at it. I'd say the guys as gutsy as you can get. As far as anti's go they would rather kill humans than animals, if thats not screwed in the head then I dont know what is.

Why would anyone in their right mind, put themselves in that situation?

I agree with nbguide.
We as hunters and sportsmen should be standing together to support all ways of hunting that are legal,ethical and fair chase.
And should be the first at government's door to stop ways that don't meet these standards.
The way the anti's win is to divide the ranks of hunters.
I'm thinking of the cancelled Ontario spring bear hunt several years ago.

If every hunter/sportsman of waterfowl,upland birds,rabbits,deer,moose and fishing would have stood up with the bear hunters and outfitters,I believe things like this wouldn't happen.
I'm also thinking of that debate of Sunday hunting and the use of crossbows here in NB.
Anything that brings more people to this sport,extends seasons, lets us spend more time in the field is a good thing.

I'm sure there are bear hunters that hunt with a gun that think a bowhunter is crazy to be 20 yards from the bait.
There is deer hunting in the states were they legally use dogs to chase the deer to a line of shooters.
There are hunters that shoot cute rabbits and partridge that are not even a year old (babies).
There are hunters that use dogs to scare pen raised birds to fly and then shoot them (the bird).

Think about your hunting choices and how they can be viewed by an anti.
You will want support from you hunting and fishing brothers and sisters.
Join your local and provincial clubs!!

That being said that video is something else, I don't think it meets the ethical or humane standards we should have.
But if it is proven this method is humane and kills quickly, I can be convinced to change my mind.

WOW, quite a rant for a Sunday morning, lets see what I've stirred up.
I'm going to the camp!

People think I'm crazy to walk up to a trapped coyote or a bobcat and whack em on top of the head. Everyone is different in what they think is crazy.

I agree.
To me, I watch that video and and wonder why they wouldn't be using a tried and true method to kill the bear whether it be a crossbow, bow and arrow or a rifle/shotgun. These are methods that if they are lined up properly will kill an animal in a quick manner and does not bring bad publicity to the hunting community. IMHO

It's not a great idea for a sportsman to point the finger at another harvest method.Like NBguide says if it's legal, leave it alone.It's important to keep things into perspective.Do you feel bad when a fish is pulled from the water with a hook in it's face, then left to thrash around till he dies?I don't, it's a fish?I see hardcore Deer hunters bashing Bear hunters all the time.It's ridiculous, and stupid.The end result is killing an animal.Period.I'll bet you my rifle there's a bunch of clowns dreaming up stuff they can use against sportsman as I write this.Everyone has to support each other to ensure a positive future for the Outdoor Heritage sports.

I just checked Saskatchewan's 2010 Hunters and trappers guide and what they have listed for Bears is "Archery, Muzzle loader, Shotgun and Rifle." There was no mention of spears or knives.

Correct me if I'm wrong. This could be on First Nation Land and their own laws or rules may apply. The video description doesnt tell you very much. I'm hoping to trap a bear in Maine this fall. Maine is (I think) the only state where this is still allowed. Looking forward to videoing that.

If this is legal in his prov. and he is brave/stupid enough to do this more power to him. As for me I don't think that I will be doing this anytime in the near future.
As far as his method of killing the bear it's a never ending battle of my opinion vs. your opinion.

Ive red all the opinions on this post, and yes everyone is wright on what they say....but in this time and age shouldn't we be more civilized as hunters, and to use weapons that is considered OK to the public eyes. Show that video to a person who does not hunt, well weve just lost a potential supporter....its the same with trapping the NB goverment all change the rules on trapping, with all the new kinds of trap...why...for the public to see its more humane way to do it. That guy that killed the bear with his knife has frigging big balls to do it, but why show it on international web site fore every non hunter to see this barberic way to kill an animal...it adds more fuel for the anties....i can bet you some $$$ that if the anties get a hold of that video, they will put it on national TV, as adds against hunting.

Anti's will always be anti's no matter what we do. Your never going to change their views period. When you start using words like civilized as hunters and humane kill then you better walk a tight rope.

Who decides what is humane? If you gut shoot an animal by accident then are you inhumane? Whats the "humane" time limit on an ANIMALS death?

Humane is only an opinion and as an avid trapper you DEFINITEYLY dont want my opinion on humane versus inhumane. Anti's are always going to hate hunting/trapping they'll work with the public to get a little farther each year into the hunting/trapping laws until "guess what" hunting/trapping is now illegal. So dont be fooled into thinking that quick kills and using certain weapons will change their views. Bottom line is they dont want animals killed PERIOD.

By the way, my goal in life is to be on a PETA video. They better pay me royalties for the footage. LOL

It used to be legal to market hunt wild game .
It used to be legal to net wild Salmon and Trout .
It used to be legal to Jacklight Deer and Moose .
On and on and on ...

Whether something is legal or not makes no difference .
Whether something is right or not makes all the difference .
