Monday Bear Blogging - Covid-19 Edition

Bear hunting and social distancing go together, at least in Maine.


Maine's annual bear hunting season begins next week, only with a twist. According to an Associated Press report in Greenwire, the state is encouraging hunters to take extra precautions due to Covid-19. "The state is continuing to recommend that hunters observe social distancing practices in the woods," according to the story. Visitors to the state must also comply with a quarantine protocol, which could lengthen the trip.

I can't speak for others, but I prefer to conduct my bear hunting with a camera and from well more than six feet away. Perhaps that's just me.
