The state’s weeklong black bear hunting season will begin on Monday morning and continue through Saturday, December 14 in portions of six north Jersey counties. Legal hunting hours are 1/2 hour before sunrise to 1/2 hour after sunset daily, and the season runs concurrently with the Six-day Firearm Deer Season.  The season is one component of the state’s comprehensive efforts to manage the bear population.

The NJDEP Division of Fish & Wildlife reminds interested hunters that a bear permit is required in addition to a current All-around Sportsman or Firearm Hunting License.

For more information, see the DEP news release at ; for information on black bears in New Jersey, see on the Division’s website.
