I'm rooting for the bears.
I really enjoy your posts, and don't want to discourage you from putting stuff up. Having grown up in a hunting household, I'm not against it as a rule, but trophy hunting just doesn't sit well with me. To each their own.I'm not all all interested in debating this subject. I will say that since these giant bears are carefully managed by the Alaska wildlife folks, they are not in jeopardy population wise.
And Ill add this is why I dont post on this part of WFF.

$10 bounties on legally killed California Grizzly exterminated them by the 1870's......
And, despite being a knee-jerk liberal, I have no issue with hunters doing their thing legally, as seems to be the case here.
I call them spectators.There will still be lots of big beas for the non-consumptive outdoorperson to enjoy.
Unlike the case of recent discussions surrounding the commercial hunting of lions in Africa, where the case could be made that the financial benefit to poor local communities had a positive impact on conservation, or even the case that could be made for hunting wolves in Idaho or Wyoming to minimize their impact to livestock or elk herds, there seems to be little justification for the killing of these magnificent animals.
.And another clueless urban dweller lecture from someone who targets endangered and magnificent trout and steelhead....
The ignorance surrounding hunting and fishing on here is quite astounding
