Nevada's controversial bear hunting season has just become permanent. State wildlife commissions voted 8-0 at a meeting in Reno on Sept. 24 to continue Nevada's first ever bear hunt again next year and every year after that from Aug. 20 to Dec. 31. The commission will review the season annually and could alter the number of bears that can be shot in a given year. The current limit is 20 bears, only six of which can be females.
