About VBHA

Why do you collect a tooth from harvested bears?

The premolar from a bear is used to determine the age of the bear.  The age structure of the annual harvest is used to analyze trends and is an important tool needed to manage bear populations in Virginia.

The age of your harvested bear will be available online 9 to 10 months after the hunting season ends at www.dgif.virginia.gov/wildlife/bear/age

(From VDGIF's Hunting & Trapping in Virginia July 2017-June 2018)
