If I draw a controlled hunt for bear is that my only bear hunting opportunity for the year?

If I were to apply and draw a controlled spring bear hunt would that be my only bear hunting opportunity for the year or would I still be able to participate in general spring or fall hunts if I did not harvest?

Answer: 

Even if you harvested a bear on a controlled hunt tag, you could purchase a second bear tag.  This would allow you to hunt the spring or fall general season.   However, if you were to harvest during the general spring bear season on the general season bear tag, you would be done for the year.
