Nevada's First Bear Hunt Approved

Published 02/08/11
By Keith Rogers, Las Vegas Review-Journal

Nevada wildlife commissioners defied a contingent of bear hunt opponents Feb. 4, voting 7-1 to hold a season this year for killing 20 black bears in Northern Nevada. The vote confirmed a Dec. 4 decision to establish the state's first regulated bear hunt. The dissenting vote came from Charles Howell of Las Vegas, who represents sportsmen on the nine-member panel. He said the 20-bear limit was "ridiculously low," considering that California hunters were permitted to take 1,900 black bears last year.
