Nevada bans bear hunting at Lake Tahoe

The Nevada Wildlife Commission has voted to ban bear hunting at Lake Tahoe.

Last year, Nevada also began to allow bear hunting, touching off huge public outcry around Lake Tahoe where there is a lot of potential for conflict between hunters and hikers.

Wildlife Department Video shows how they scare bears away from populated areas.

So now, bear hunting is banned on the Nevada side of the Lake. It is still legal on the California side, but hunters in our state tend to go elsewhere.
