Nevada Bear Harvest Now At 13Nevada Dept. of Wildlife, Bear Hunting Magazine
Nevada bear hunters have now taken thirteen bears in Nevada's inaugural bear hunt, and as of today, the season is one female away from coming to an end.
The season opened August 20th, with 41 hunters receiving tags. State wildlife commissioners set a limit of 20 bears, with no more than six females.
The season will close when either threshold is met or on December 31st, whichever comes first.
All but two of the bruins have been killed on the east side of U.S. 395 in the Pine Nut and Sweetwater mountains south and east of Gardnerville and in the Pine Grove Hills in Lyon County.
A legislative panel last month approved making the bear hunt a permanent event, the same as hunting other species such as deer and elk.
The Wildlife Commission each year will set dates for bear hunting season and quotas on the number that can be killed.
