    Default anybody heard of a new reg for black bear

    I was reading a magazine and one add said this is the last year for over the counter black bear tags in Alaska. Anyone hear anything about this? Just curious, thanks Tom

    Non-residents without a guide in units 1-3 will be required to get a draw permit to hunt black bears. Otherwise the rest of the state appears to remain the same.

    This was actually the first year that they were harvest tag (vs. sealing), I thought.

    Before taking any of my advice for granted on here research the legal ramifications thoroughly I am not the Troopers nor am I the Judge that will be presiding over your case/hearing. Please read the hunting and sportfishing regulations and feel free to interpret their meaning on your own.

    Still gotta get the bears sealed though! Just more paper work, duplicating pretty much.

    You get a lot more data from sealing than you do from harvest reports. With harvest reports you get info about hunter effort. From sealing you get a lot more biological data. And you'd be amazed how many hunters can't tell a boy bear from a girl bear.

    Probably not much of a big deal in most of the state where high harvests of bears is encouraged, but in SE where they are more of a target species, it really does make a difference in management.
