Black Bear Seasons
Important Black Bear Season Information

Black bears are hunted during the spring and fall in Wyoming's mountain ranges. Baiting is legal outside designated wilderness and grizzly areas in Wyoming in some hunt areas. Bait type may be restricted in those areas open to baiting.

Black Bear Hunt Area Summary Map

Hunter harvest within individual hunt areas is regulated through a female mortality quota. Once the quota is reached, the season closes. It is the hunter's responsibility to determine if an area is still open prior to hunting
by calling the black bear area mortality quota hotline
at (800) 264-1280.

Everything You Need to Know
to Start Your Hunt

Once a bear is harvested, the license holder must present the unfrozen pelt and skull within 72 hours to a local warden or biologist or at any of the WGFD offices during normal business hours for registration and the collection of two premolar teeth.
