Re: Maryland Bear Update
As of 9:00 pm. 59 bears have been harvested after 2 days of hunting. The hunt remains open with a quota of 80 to 110 bears. Maryland DNR usually will close the season when the lower # is reached. Current Maryland Bear Hunting began in 2004 when 20 bears were harvested. Numbers have grown since then and today biologists estimate the population has doubled. 1,000 hunters are involved this year compared to approx. 600 in 2004. 65 bears were taken last year when the season was closed. I will update the info . tomorrow after 9:00.
