Right now its losing, 45% to 55%. Maybe folks associate trophy hunting with wanton waste. Lack of real education about it likely.

I voted.

Yep, using the word trophy hunting is the way to bias the vote against grizzly hunting (any hunting for that matter).

Might as well ask for a vote on NASCAR by asking if "Street racing should be legal."

We are trying to get grizzly hunting legalized in Montana.

The antis are trying to ban all predator hunting as it is an easy mark and with the predators growing population the other game animals would decrease and then they would be able to stop hunting them easier.

Hence the problem. There is no legal requirement here to salvage any meat from a grizzly. That is the definition of wanton waste. That is why the public is siding with the anti's on this one.

Most hunters here support a move to make meat salvage a requirement in order to keep ther hunt, but the Guide Outfitter Association is against it.

Bear snack sticks are great! My brother, son, and I had 3 entire black bears made into these on a recent Idaho bear hunt.

so why is the poll owner influencing the vote by calling it TROPHY HUNTING...why not just GRIZZLY HUNTING????

I hunt....I can appreciate a trophy quality animal but they are all trophies to me especially with a longbow or a selfbow even more.

Using those terms influences the public to think of it as just hunting skull and wasting the animal for nothing more than a measurement of its skull.
