By order of the Montana Fish & Wildlife Commission, the hunting of all black bears in Bear Management Unit 700 will close one-half hour after sunset on Thursday, May 25, 2017.

Bear Management Unit 700 includes portions of Bighorn, Carter, Custer, Dawson, Fallon, Garfield, McCone, Musselshell, Powder River, Prairie, Richland, Rosebud, Treasure, Yellowstone and Wibaux counties.

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