No-quota bear licenses

No-quota bear licenses also will be available starting June 1  at any ELS license agent. No-quota bear licenses are only valid in the no-quota bear zone. When you purchase a license you will be asked which kill block/deer permit area you intend to hunt. This is only for evaluating the number of bear hunters in the no-quota zone. It does not allow someone to hunt in one of the 11 Bear Management Units without a valid license for one of those areas.
