New Double Tagging Requirements For Black Bear

Headlines

Friday, March 26, 1999

There is a new, double tagging procedure for harvested black bear this year.

This year, all black bear licenses are composed of a "carcass tag" and a "hide tag." The carcass tag must be attached to the carcass of the bear and the hide tag must be attached to the hide.

Within five days of harvesting a black bear, or within five days of arriving at a trailhead in backcountry areas, the hunter must present to a Montana FWP official the complete bear hide -- with proof of sex remaining naturally attached -- and skull for inspection and for the removal of a tooth to age the bear.
