I am an advocate for the right to bear arms. A longtime hunter, I have been selected three times for a Maine moose permit.

Baiting a bear, however, is not hunting nor is it a sport. Feeding a hungry animal and waiting to kill it is not a sport. Knowing where and when the kill will happen is not hunting, it is premeditated killing.

This is all about money. A person who lures an unsuspecting animal to its death for money is a paid assassin. When the thrill of a kill outweighs the work it takes to actually hunt the game, it can no longer be called hunting.
