Depends on what you consider a "shooter" bear. If the bear is not a cub....typically younger than 1.5 years old, it can legally be harvested. The answer to your question solely relies on the hunter who has the opportunity to shoot this bear. Some hold out and want to harvest heavy old bears, and others harvest the first legal bear that presents itself. At the end of the day, shoot what you are satisfied with and pass up on bears that you would be okay with letting go and not filling your tag. I personally always hunt with the mentality; Don't pass on the first day what you would shoot on the last.
