    Do you or would you care if every polar bear died off?

    I do not think it will happen, but don't really care if they do go extinct.

    We may go up to Churchill to see them one day but easy come easy go.

    Oh, you mean the genetically white grizzly bear. No, I really do not care.
    I really don't care if wolves and coyote go away, either .

    Maybe one of them big spider rig setups, with Alabama rigs on each pole?

    Considering the 2018 BM Classic is about a month away and should be spawn time, I'd try a really noisy crank bait or Texas rigged plastic first.

    It's the Bi-polar bears that I am afraid of. If you don't know, go ahead and google the "alternate" meaning of bear!

    I do. They are such a majestic animal.

    The less ice they have means more water more water means less duck migration. Every year in the Atlantic flyway the birds are wintering further and further north. I haven't seen a major migration in my area in the last 10 years. My duck season was so bad that I went deer hunting during the supposedly peak of the migration due to the lack of birds.

    Been to Churchill? You feel like you are in a different time and place. Polar bears migrate through the town from their den sites south of Churchill to get to the fresh ice (Hudson Bay is salt water) formed from the Churchill river to get to the seals. They are something to see in the wild. The only bear that hunts man as food. All the doors in Churchill are left open. If you see a bear, you just go into the nearest home or vehicle (also left unlocked). Everyone going outside the town is armed , usually shotguns with slugs/SSGs. If the climate changes enough, the bears will disappear, and then you will see other species disappear.

    If this is just a trolling exercise, you got me.

    I’ve told my wife for years I’m gonna have nude photos of myself laying on a polar bear skin rug, hung over our couch one day when I get older. I’ll post pics here after the shoot. Hate for y’all to miss out. :l
