The hunting of all black bears in Bear Management Unit 510, in portions of Bighorn, Carbon and Yellowstone Counties, will close one-half hour after sunset on Wednesday, October 17, 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.
