CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada's third black bear hunting season is in the books.

The Department of Wildlife says 14 bears were killed by hunters, with the last one killed on Nov. 23.

Of those, four were female and 10 were male.

As many as 20 were allowed to be killed in the season that ran from Sept. 15 through Dec. 31.

The agency this year excluded the Lake Tahoe Basin and areas along popular hiking trails on Mount Rose Summit from the hunt area after complaints from residents.

Wildlife commissioners have said they will review the bear hunt after this season.

Over the last three years, 135 bear hunting tags were issued and 39 bears were been killed.
