Bear season underway throughout the state

November 21, 2010

Bear season opened Saturday, though numbers were down slightly from in years past.

"It was really designed to increase opportunities," said Doty McDowell, Pennsylvania Game Commission Wildlife Conservation Officer for the Northcentral Region. "By opening on a Saturday, there are kids that wouldn't be available to hunt on a Monday, so by providing a Saturday opener they were hoping to provide more opportunity for everybody."
