Make bear hunting more bearable with seminar

Colorado Parks and Wildlife in Montrose will present a special workshop on bear hunting on March 10. The deadline to apply for a bear hunting license is April 3.

Never expect bear hunting to be easy, but Tony Bonacquista can make it easier.

Bonacquista, a district wildlife manager for Colorado Parks and Wildlife and an experienced bear hunter, will reveal his secrets during a bear hunting seminar March 10 in Montrose.

He is expected to discuss bear biology, hunting tactics, field dressing, rules and regulations and human bear conflict issues.

“Bears are very challenging to hunt, but hunters who know where to look and how to hunt them can improve their success rates,” Bonacquista said in a news release.

Or as Sam Elliott said in the movie “The Big Lebowski,” “Sometimes you eat the b’ar and sometimes the b’ar, well, he eats you.”
