Attention bear hunters

In an effort to better understand the black bear population on tribal lands, the EBCI department of Fisheries and Wildlife Management is giving blaze orange hats to hunters who report harvest data and submit pre-molar teeth for aging.  Report forms and tooth envelopes are available at the Fisheries and Wildlife Management office (Tribal Utilities Building, 1840 Paint Town Rd.) and the Natural Resource Enforcement office (517 Sequoyah Trail).  This year, they are also giving out a prize for the largest (weight) bear harvested.  Bears must be officially weighed by Natural Resource Enforcement staff to qualify.  Info: Mike LaVoie 554-6113
