Re: Bear Hunting in Maryland
The way Maryland has it set up for hunting Black Bear, it's a two person hunt. I suppose to make it so more have a chance to hunt or for safety, either way both are allowed to hunt but only one bear between them. With only 380 hunters drawn out of over 2000 entries, we had between us 13 preference points. You would think they would open the season up for where we live along the Appalachian trail as we have lots of bears but closed season, so out to western MD we go. The other thing is you must remain within eyesight of each other at all times.
Of course I will be a gentleman and let her shoot first but if she misses..... Problem is two yrs ago she shot a deer at 200 yds in the neck with my then 358 Winchester. DRT
