IMPORTANT NOTE:
 
A future Florida Black Bear hunt has been proposed by hunt clubs on the Florida Panhandle.  Such an action is scientifically preposterous, and the idea of issuing even limited hunting rights to enable hunters to kill a threaatened species is totally unprecedented.
 
Though the Black Bear population is increasing slightly in some parts of Florida, the overall population continues to decline due to narrowing of habitat and frequent traffic mortality that negates any breeding increases.
 
Call the Florida Fish & Wildife Conservation Commission Office in your area and tell them you DO NOT SUPPORT the killing of a registered "threatened" species animal.
