Md. Bear Hunt Ends With 65 Killed

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — The Maryland Department of Natural Resources says this year’s black bear hunt is over.

The agency says hunters reported 65 kills as of 9 p.m. Thursday. The DNR had set a quota of 55 to 80 for the season.

Officials say 59 of the bears were taken in Garrett County. Six were from Allegany County. Hunting was limited to those two counties.

The largest bear taken was a 376-pound male killed by 12-year-old Colton Lucas of Kitzmiller.

Bear hunting in Maryland resumed in 2004, after a more than 50-year moratorium.
