The NJDEP is reminding interested hunters that the sale of unclaimed and leftover black bear hunting permits for the 2012 season (December 3-8) begins Wednesday, November 14 at 10 a.m. Permits can be purchased at any license agent or online; those purchasing permits online will have them mailed and need to allow 7-10 business days for delivery.

A current 2012 Firearm or All-around hunting license is required to purchase a permit. There is a $2.00 fee for each permit, and hunters are limited to two permits for the season. The season bag limit is one black bear regardless of whether a hunter has a permit for another area.

Permits for all four Bear Hunting  Areas will initially be available; exact numbers of available permits will be posted online later today at; that page will be updated in real time with remaining permits once the sale begins.

A list of license agents can be viewed at; permits can be purchase online from the Division’s license website at
