Wild Webcast – Missouri is Bear Country (2022.05.11)


MDC’s new Black Bear Biologist Nate Bowersock and former MDC Black Bear Biologist and current Terrestrial Section Chief Laura Conlee share their expertise on the estimated 800 black bears in Missouri.
As spring gets underway, these magnificent mammals leave their winter dens in search of food.
The Wild Webcast will help folks understand that Missouri is bear country and also feature tips on how to “Be Bear Aware.”
As Missouri offers its second bear-hunting season in the state this fall, Bowersock and Conlee also provide information on applying for bear hunting permits during May and provide tips for fall hunting.
