Bear Hunting in Maryland

I was reading here on LRH and people were talking about drawing their tags and realized that the MD Bear hunt drawing was yesterday. So I went online to look but no luck for me but............. My wife was drawn so I guess I'm going. We've been entering and building preference points for 7 yrs and now have our first bear hunt. Dawn will be shooting a 350 Rem Mag w/ muzzle brake shooting the 200 Hornady Sp for close range out to 200 yds and I will be carrying my 7 SAUM shooting the 180 Bergers for longer ranges and possibly my 356AE Winchester for real close range.
Now where to hunt? Anyone in Western Maryland have any private land they are willing to share or know of any landowners who are wanting to get rid of a Bear problems

Re: Bear Hunting in Maryland

If your wife is the one drawn, why will you be carrying your rifle? Is there another season open that would allow you to also have a firearm?

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
