I'm from NC and hunted quite a bit in coastal NC. I've been duck hunting down there before during bear season and there are many, many TN hunters down there with their hounds. I don't think it will matter to most. If you know bears and bear hunting, then you know NC has some of the largest black bears in the world. 100 bucks won't deter them at all, or at least the ones that I'm aware of. Truly world class bears.

I've heard mountain bears are much smaller.

I doubt people want to pay more to hunt small bears.

From my experience in hiking the Appalachian Mountains, NC by far had the most bears. The largest ones have seen so far in that area were actually in GSMNP, but for numbers NC was tops. There is a bear sanctuary along the Appalachian Trail in NC and oddly I did not see a bear in there.

The big bears are in the coastal regions in NC. When I was stationed there there were several bears taken around 700lbs.
