Successful ap- plicants will receive a permit valid for the five-day hunt- ing season which will take place October 25 th through 29 th in Allegany, Frederick, Garrett, and Washington counties. The department will issue 950 hunting per- mits this year. The annual bear hunt, now in its 18 th year, is an impor- tant management tool used to slow the increase of Maryland’s black bear population and limit expansion of Maryland bears into the eastern suburbs and cities. “Maryland’s closely regulated, sustainable black bear hunt has been helping us achieve our management goal of limiting the growth of our bear population, while ensuring a secure and sustainable future for this remarkable species,” Wildlife and Heritage Service Director Paul Peditto said. Hunters may apply for the lottery online or at one of more than 250 hunting and fishing license agents across the state. Hunters need a valid DNR ID number to participate. All entries must be completed by 11:59pm on August 31 st and must be accom- panied by a $15 nonrefundable application fee. Only one application per person will be accepted; submitting duplicates can result in disqualification and forfei- ture. The drawing will be held September 3 rd and winners will be notified shortly thereafter. The Black Bear Damage Reimbursement Fund is open for voluntary contribu- tions by hunters when they apply for their permits. This fund directly reimburses Maryland farmers who have suffered agricultural damage caused by black bears. Since the fund was started 25 years ago, it has paid more than $130,000 in eli- gible claims. For information, visit www.news.maryland.gov/dnr or call 1-877-620-8DNR (8367).
