Plan Implementation

Implementation of the Black Bear Management Plan entails the following actions:


Obtain an annual return of teeth of 30 percent or more (averaged over two consecutive years) of the general season harvested black bear. A mandatory hunter check requirement will be initiated if the 30 percent goal is not reached.


Provide personnel and fiscal resource availability permit, begin a black bear research project in western and/or eastern Oregon by 1998. The projects will be designed to assist with development of population estimates and measurement of population trends.


Annual general harvest seasons will occur between the outside dates of August 1 and November 30, as long as the Plan’s harvest guidelines are met. If guidelines are not met, hunting restrictions will be employed as directed in the Plan.


Continue damage control efforts with a variety of methods, including controlled hunts, emergency hunts, general seasons, U.S. Department of Agriculture Animal Damage Control personnel, landowners, and other private individuals.


Evaluate the use of alternative methods to alleviate western Oregon tree damage.
