Maryland's Black Bear Lottery is now through September 1. You can participate by going to: http://blackbear.dnr.state.md.us/
We put together an online guide to hunting black bear in Maryland and other useful information in response to many requests from hunters like yourself. This information will give you the basics of bear hunting in Maryland and may be helpful to you if you have never bear hunted before or if you are trying to encourage a friend to participate.
