Why is everyone so excited about putting in for bear tags? I frequent a Facebook page and someone asked who's applying for a tag, and almost everyone said they are. They seemed excited about it. Are they doing a draw and only giving so many tags like the 5 elk tags? The odd's of me seeing a bear in Moniteau County is Zero. Seems like a good money maker. Maybe they should just sell bear tags to everyone for $15 just in case you see one. They would make even more money that way with the same outcome in number of bears killed.
