Description

In recent years, the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (IF&W) has implemented several changes in hunting regulations to counter a steady increase in the harvest of Maine's black bears (Ursus americanus). These include several changes made during the early 1980s and a number of major changes that started with the 1990 hunt. The research reported in this paper considers hunters' opinions regarding current and proposed hunting regulations for black bears in Maine.
