From Commonwealth News Center

Black Bear Weekend will be December 17-18 at Pine Mountain State Resort Park, 1050 State Park RD, Pineville, KY.
Black bears were nearly absent from Kentucky for about 150 years after intensive logging in the 19th century took away much of their habitat, but today's healthy population will again support hunting.
MBR>The hunt is open to any Kentucky resident who purchases a bear hunting permit in addition to an annual hunting license, unless license exempt.

Those going afield to hunt black bears in the designated counties nearby are invited to make Pine Mountain their weekend hunting headquarters. The resort's $110 Black Bear Hunter Package includes two night's accommodations and days-end seminars on black bear habitat and behavior.

Meals are also available on-site in the park's Mountain View Restaurant. Because of the low package rate, no other discounts will apply.

The $110 Black Bear Hunter Package fee includes two night's accommodations and days-end seminars on black bear habitat and behavior.To make a reservation, contact the park's guest services desk at (606) 337-3066 or (800) 325-1712. *This event is tentatively scheduled in anticipation of formal date selection by the Kentucky Department of Fish & Wildlife Resources.
