Boy, oh boy . . . Sounds great . . . What does a guy have to do to become a heroic great bear hunter like Mr. Rose? Scaring an animal up a tree with a pack of "radar packing robotic" dogs and shooting it between the eyes with a shotgun sounds like the sport for me! Is there a secret handshake in this club? Does ESPN plan on covering it this fall? Or is this like playing baseball? To be any good do you have to have started as a boy? Kudos to The Times for occasionally (Nov. 14) writing one of these reminders that this is not a sport. It's nothing but cold-blooded murder!
