HUNTERS REMINDED OF CHANGES TO EXTENDED BEAR SEASONS

Extended bear season eliminated in WMU 3A, added in WMU 1B.

In many parts of Pennsylvania, black bears may be hunted and harvested by properly licensed hunters during all or a portion of the firearms deer season.

But areas that last year were open to concurrent deer and bear hunting might not be open again this year, and areas that last year had no extended bear season within the firearms deer season this year might have one.

All extended bear seasons can easily be found in the 2016-17 Pennsylvania Hunting & Trapping Digest, which is available online and usually is issued to hunters at the time they buy their licenses. If using a paper copy of the digest, be sure it is current for the existing 2016-17 license year.

In 2016-17, the extended bear season has been eliminated in Wildlife Management Unit 3A, which is north of U.S. Route 6 in McKean, Potter, Tioga and Bradford counties.

Additionally, an extended bear season has been added in Wildlife Management Unit 1B, which includes Erie County and parts of Warren, Venango and Crawford counties. This season, which runs from Nov. 30 to Dec. 3, was established to prevent further expansion of bears into the western portion of WMU 1B, where the potential for bear-human conflicts is high.

To participate in the extended bear season, hunters need a general license and a bear license. A general license costs $20.90 for resident adults and $101.90 for nonresident adults, and a bear license costs $16.90 for residents and $36.90 for nonresidents.

Both licenses must be in possession while hunting deer and bears concurrently, and all deer and bears must be tagged and reported as required by law and explained in the 2016-17 Pennsylvania Hunting & Trapping Digest.

Extended bear seasons are opened in the following WMUs:

· WMUs 2B, 5B, 5C and 5D – Nov. 28 to Dec. 10

· WMUs 3B, 3C and 3D – Nov. 28 to Dec. 3

· WMUs 1B, 2C, 4B, 4C, 4D and 4E – Nov. 30 to Dec. 3

The commission might want to check their online version, I read it on there and it says that you are still allowed to harvest a bear in 3-A. I typed in 2016 - 2017 bear season. It's in the PDFM. Net site.

Would be a great idea if game commission would allow Sunday hunting so working people would have time to hunt. Definitely more people would buy a license

Sorry but Sunday is not for hunting, it's a day of relaxing with family, if you were allowed to hunt that's a reason to be away from family and wife. who would like to have the day with her husband, you leave her with the kids, house, meals prep, and don't forget YOU sit an watch tv after you get home because YOU'VE worked hard, what at sitting on your A$$ all day, look at what she did.. Oh NO NO I am not a wife. I'm a husband who 1. loves to hunt, with my wife 2. knows what she has done all day, and how hard she has worked. 3. when I get home I help with finishing supper, homework, getting kids ready for baths and bed. So hunting on Sunday is out of the question, your just looking for a reason to leave the house, most likely cause you hate the kids playing around, and your wife looking like she's beat.. Know what she is so help her

Amen 10:14..... For the working folk who love to hunt, but have trouble finding time spending way too much hard earned money on Earned Income Tax credit for m-f hunters (many) and 1052 wtf, your an idiot.

Wow, 1052, can you say puppy-whipped? Did your wife finally give it to you after that post or take the gun away from your head? so sad lol

I don't know what all this crying over Sunday is about. You all sound like Hillary supporters. You CAN hunt on Sunday in PA. Coyotes, Fox, and Crows. If you trap you CAN check your traps. If there is anyone puppy whipped it's you I WANNA HUNT EVERYTHING ON SUNDAY, WAAAA, WAAA, WAAA cry babies. Can't get off work, too bad. Can't get around family commitments, too bad. Get a grip and make a change. The world, work, and the hunting seasons do not need to change for you. SUCK IT UP BUTTERCUPS!!! Next you'll want a safe space on all Gamelands...

For all who want less government, there needs to be less government involvement in determining what can and can't be done on Sunday.

Obviously those who don't work an really do not like to hunt are the people that would not like Sunday hunting

No 150. WRONG! Most pgc cooperative land owners do not want Sunday hunting. If they are lost 10s of 1000s of acres open to sportsman will go away. A real stick in the eye to most hunters who really could care less about Sunday hunting. Also, if Sunday hunting is legislated on and passed that means more officers need to be put on in the field. You think the increase in hunting licences are bad now. Puh, drop in the bucket.
