With the earthquake and power outages because of the hurricane, you may have understandably forgotten to apply for this year’s Maryland Black Bear Lottery. It’s not too late! Or you may have it added to your “bucket list.” Could you be one of the winners this year?
You may still apply through this Friday, September 2, @ 11:59 p.m. If you can’t participate in the hunt this year, you may want to purchase a preference point to increase your odds for next year.
Applications issued will be valid for this year’s black bear hunting season, which will take place October 24 through October 29.
