You're overthinking this x 1,000
Get a bag of pastries. Buy new if you want or get day olds from the grocery store, local bakery, cake shop or doughnut shop. Better yet, don't hold back and hit every place and get yourself a garbage bag full. You can put it in the freezer.
Make a small pile of the pastries in a good spot. A convenient place to shoot from, safe direction to shoot and all that. You probably already have a spot picked out.
Do this every day until the bear makes the doughnut snack a part of his daily routine.
Then shoot the sumbitch. Any rifle with any round will do. I would make a brain shot as I do that when poaching. Hunting would have been a better word to use and I plan on trying it some day.
NFADLR, I haven't read this entire thread, so forgive me if I'm asking silly questions.
Do you live in the country? Do you have a California Hunting License?
If so, just go buy yourself a bear tag. You can do so online. If not, go get yourself a hunting license and a bear tag. Bear season opens with the deer season. If it is deer archery season in your area, you can hunt it with a bow. You can continue to hunt it with a bow through the gun season as well if you want to...or, are too close to your neighbors to shoot a rifle. The season remains open until something like 1500 are killed throughout the state. Last years season went into 2019 before they closed the season. It is a long season. Just sayin' bear meat doesn't suck if you know how to cook it, and you could make a nice rug out of it as well.
Good luck with decision.
Bob, you’ll need a CA DL or Fed ID for a hunting license. I needed to show one to put on the record just to take the Hunter’s safety class to be eligible to apply for my license. After that it’s easy and cheap for a bear tag.
I like the self proclaimed poacher. I would really listen to that guy... :whistling:
I still have that bear box I sent you pictures of. I will GIVE it to ya, because I don’t need it and it’ll help you out.
Yep, as AFEOD mentioned, you definitely will need a legal ID along with proof of a Hunter Safety class. Sorry bro, wish I could help you out.Yes I'm in a county area.
Nope dont have a state issued hunting lisence, Can't find what they want to apply for such a license, don't have any other contracts so if they want a driver lisence to apply for a u
hunting license that's a deal breaker.
If you or anyone can post a link to what is requires to apply and receive such a license I would be obliged.

Why don't you invite legal licensed hunters to hunt the bear on your property during hunting season. The hunters will have an easy hunt since the bear make your house a regular stop and the hunters will take the dead body away. I bet you can find a Bear Hunting Forum for your area on line with a few google searches.
