Now its the bee keepers wanting more bears harvested claiming hive damage. States like Virginia have developed electric fence designs that repel bears. So, my advice to bee keepers...if you want to be in the bee business learn how to set-up your hives like they do in other states. I need to add, all this hog wash about bears being a major predator of fawns....here in the deep snow country of the NW U.P. stopping the doe shooting has produced a significant increase in fawns. I am seeing multiple fawns every time I go to the woods. More bucks, too.
