GARRETT COUNTY, Md. (WJZ) — It’s a fast start to Maryland’s black bear hunt.

Since the season was reopened in 2004, Monday’s first day set a new record.

Hunters in far Western Maryland killed 41 black bears, topping the previous record of 38 in a single day.

Department of Natural Resources biologists expect this year’s quota of 98 to 130 bears to be quickly met, with hunting conditions said to be perfect.
