(1) The Commission adopted the Black Bear
Management Plan on July 17, 1987, and adopted the first revisions to the Plan

every five years the department shall review the black bear management plan and
make recommendations to the Commission for any changes to the plan. Review of
the plan should include incorporation of the best available science and should
