84. All do respect but
what other options are there?

Relocation? Sounds good. Capture the bear and send it somewhere else. However, it doesn't work well. Bears are attached to home range and if relocated seem to have an uncanny ability to find their way back.

Birth Control? I have read a number of articles about trying to introduce methods of birth control to wild populations, especially with deer, but it is still not a viable option and likely prohibitively expensive.

A regulated hunt is usually the only cost effective option that state governments have.
