Bill – Yeah, bear hunters are interested in the meat, generally speaking. I don’t know how quickly the meat spoils if not gutted right away, but I’m quite sure the yellow jackets would hang around their ravaged hive as long as daylight lasted.
FWIW, I don’t really approve of hunting bears (or other predators), though I do understand the appeal, I think.
Peter – I’m glad this worked for you. It wasn’t one of my favorites, though obviously I thought it had its moments or I wouldn’t have posted it.
