By order of the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Commission, the hunting of all black bears in Bear Management Unit 700 will close one-half hour after sunset on Saturday, October 13, 2012.

The order halting the hunt came shortly after Fish, Wildlife & Parks officials received word that the pre-established harvest quota for the district had been met.
