Individuals from Sykesville and Finksburg were charged with hunting black bears with the aid of bait.

The Natural Resource Police charged four Carroll County residents with black bears hunting violations on Oct. 24, according to a NRP press release.

Neil Franklin Howes, 64, and Thomas James Howes, 25, both of Sykesville, were charged with hunting black bears with the aid of bait in the the Stag Run area of Garrett County.

Charles Lester Blum, 47, and Nancy Marie Blum, 53, both of Finksburg were charged with hunting black bears with the aid of bait and failing to maintain visual contact while black bear hunting in the area of Cranesville, Md.

According to the Maryland Department of Natural Resources black bear hunting regulations, the use of any bait, scent attractants or electronic calls is prohibited for black bear hunting.

In addition, a permittee and any subpermittee must maintain visual contact with one another while hunting black bears, according to state bear hunting regulation. The use of audio enhancement devices such as radios or cell phones are not considered visual contact.
