Monty, why are you losing your temper?

All I'm saying is that hunter harvest data doesn't necessarily correlate to bear population #'s. There are other factors which affect where hunters decide to focus their efforts. The DEC reports you provided (both of which I've read before) demonstrate as much. 50%-60% of the bear population, which is a range of estimation that is more than half, resides in the Northern Zone; only ~500 bear are harvested there annually.

P.S. those bull#$% numbers I've been using come directly from the DEC website and the documents you linked.
