Wyoming announced it will proceed with a proposed grizzly bear hunt for the fall, 2018 hunting season. This marks the first time in 44 years the large, ferocious predators will face hunters, and it defeats efforts made by numerous anti-hunting groups to stop the event.
The hunts will occur outside both Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. No hunting is allowed inside the park boundaries. The state’s game department will issue just 22 tags for the year, which they describe as the most conservative option they considered. Bear hunting success rates run around ten percent, or less, in most states, so few, if any, grizzlies will get harvested this year in all likelihood. Both Idaho and Montana postponed their hunts until 2019, at the earliest.
