The one in the bucket was killed on farmland so it could have been worse.

The bear weighed 565 lbs. was killed not far from my house. It is not the only 500+ lb bear killed here.

Are most of the bear-dog hunts done in large groups?

I wouldn't say most but there are some hunting parties that may exceed 10 or 15, maybe even 20 people. I've seen as many as 20-dogs on one bear, but then again I've seen that bear still get away. They've killed several bear around here over 500lbs and a couple over 600lbs. A buddy of mine killed one that went 672. Had a full mount done on it, it's huge. Now you know why we pushed so hard to get HCP holders to be able to possess their hand guns during archery season. \:D Ain't nothing make you crap your paints any faster than running into a 500lb black bear, in the dark, with a bow as a defense weapon...

You put twenty dogs on a bear or hog and your greatly decreasing the chances of catching it. All your gonna do is push the animal harder it knows it can't take them whereas you put out half a dozen or even less, the animal might think it has a chance and is more likely to hold its ground and bay or tree. I always caught more hogs with only two or three dogs on the ground at a time.
