The bear was probably a young adult, weighing about 200 hundred pounds. But that didn't stop him from going down without a fight.
"To my surprise he rolled and started coming at me, so I shot him again and he rolled and came at me again and I shot him," says Iguado."The last thing when he turned and ran was 'click' and I had run out of bullets."
Luckily, at that point, the black bear began to run away from Iguado rather than toward him.
"That's when the adrenaline started, I started to shake at that point," says Iguado.
The state distributed 340 bear hunting permits this year, according to Harry Spiker, a bear biologist. But the state also set a higher limit this year - 110 bears up from 65 in 2011.
"We're using this as a tool to slow the growth of the population," says Spiker. "The population is still being allowed to grow but also spreading of bears into the more urban areas in Maryland."
But the week-long hunting season is only in Garrett and Allegany counties.
Black bear hunting season will end as soon as they reach the quota of 110 bears. They're up to 75 in the third day of the season.
