Archery Bear Season Nov. 14 & 15

Hunters planning to participate in the state's archery bear season on Nov. 14 and 15, are reminded by the Game Commission they must have a general hunting license and a bear license from the Pennsylvania Game Commission.

The archery bear season will be held in selected Wildlife Management Units including three in the WFRM listening area-- 2F, 2G,and 3A.

In 2006, about 7,500 hunters participated in the new two-day season, according to the agency's Game-Take Survey. They took 79 bears.

In WMUs where the archery bear season and fall wild turkey season run concurrently, bowhunters when moving are required to wear a hat containing 100 square inches of solid fluorescent orange. The hat may be removed when the hunter is stationary or on stand.

WMUs affected by this requirement are 2D, 2G, 3A and 4D.

Any bear taken by a bowhunter must be checked by the Game Commission within 24 hours of the time it was killed. Successful bowhunters should call a region office for instructions. Region office staff will direct the hunter to a location where an employee will meet him or her and check the bear.

Traditional check stations will not be open during the archery bear season but will be for the regular season which takes place next Monday through Wednesday..

Telephone numbers for the six region offices are listed on page 3 of the 2007-08 Pennsylvania Hunting and Trapping Digest. From WFRM News
