The Maryland Department of Natural Resources is accepting applications for an October black bear hunt.

The department will take applications through Sept. 2 to participate in a lottery to receive hunting permits.

DNR will issue 260 permits, with a quota of 55 to 80 bears. The hunt is scheduled Oct. 24-29, but will close when the quota is reached.

DNR officials say applicants have a good chance of being selected, with about one in 15 receiving a permit.

Hunters can apply online through Sept. 2, while phone applications will be accepted Aug. 22-26 between 9 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.
