95. Some do.
I have tried it myself and didn't think too much of it, however that was many years ago. I have only met a few hunters that actively hunted bear. What few I have met and talked to describe bear hunting as 'tedious'. My father, an active hunter for many years, swore off hunting or eating bear when on a deer hunt, he happened upon a black bear having a feast on a dead deer carcase. I asked what the big deal was and his reply was that the deer had been dead for a "prolonged" time. After that, my father swore NO BEAR MEAT. would touch his lips.
Another thing I have heard is that when it comes time to skin and butcher the animal one has to be mentally prepared. As one poster put it, a skinned bear is like a human being. Similar in size and proportions. This has freaked some hunters out from time to time as I have been told.
