Fifteen years ago, we studied the ecology of recolonizing black bears in southeastern Oklahoma. The current effort is designed to reevluate the population's status relative to the initiation of a black bear hunting season, 5 years ago. Result will assist in the ongoing management of black bears in Oklahoma.
