California releases bear hunt information

Tribune staff report

With Nevada yet to decide on boundaries for the state’s second bear hunt Saturday, California has already launched quotas and boundaries for their hunt.

This year’s quota in California is 1,700 bears. The boundaries of the hunt range from the Oregon border all the way to Southern California.

The Nevada Department of Wildlife commission meets Saturday to decide where its hunt will take place.

“There’s a number of suggestions out there as to what to do,” said NDOW spokesman Chris Healy.

Basically, all of the options revolve around whether or not bear hunting should be allowed on the Nevada side of the Lake Tahoe Basin, Healy said. Quotas won’t be decided until May, he added.

Last year in California, 1264 bears were killed by hunters. Hunters in Nevada killed 14 bears.
