Re: Successful AZ Black Bear Hunt
Great bear, great story...
My last bear wasn't nearly that great and my story even worse.....
my son reminded me that bear season came in on Fri (that was a couple of years ago ) and after I shot the darned thing recalled that F & G had staggered the seasons ... when I checked the reg's sure enough the unit was still closed ..this was after I had packed the head and hide and a good portion of the meat out by myself..
I called the bear hot line and told them I'm be in on Monday ... I went before the judge and she asked me how I pleaded, I told her guilty and that I had turned myself in .. she read some attachments on the back of the citation and said I'll accept this (the wildlife officer had written the attachment and I've never seen it) how does $50 sound.. dumb me ... the only thing that I came up with was "sounds good I'll see you again next year" ... dumb me ... I sure hope I don't have to go in front of that judge ever again .... I don't know I could stand at attention that long then.
