Hunting

Is black bear open in unit 66a during the 2016 controled antlersless elk center fire season.
If i were to hunt antlerless elk this 2016 center fire season in unit 66a could I harvest a black bear provided i have my tags and license.

Answer: 

Black bear season is open in GMU 66A in the fall from Aug 30 - Oct 31.  The antlerless elk controlled hunt is Oct 25 - Nov 15.  For the first few days  of the elk season (Oct 25-31) you would be able to harvest a black bear.
