Its funny how bears were a dime a dozen when i didn't have this quest, now that i have it, i can't find one, not even in the places where they used to appear. I've been in the woodsy areas from Markarth to Riften and all i have is 2 pelts. Crazy. Could this be part of the scripting?
There are also a few venders that sell bear pelts, don't ask me where they are though. I was just lucky enough to stumble across someone selling pelts when i needed to do that quest. --- Nachos are almost always better in theory
No, it didn't decrease the bears for me at all. Try riding from south to north, there's always a bunch on the way to Dawnstar. --- It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.
There's this bar in Los Angeles called the Faultline and that is where you will find all the bears you ever wanted. --- What have we become America? Soldiers on the Great Frontier! [Founder Evil Democrats]
