We have a bear here in northern NJ that has been walking around upright on just his back legs for a few years now. Fish and Game has recent reports on him and he appears to be just fine. This fall season should see some bruisers taken. Should be an interesting hunt. Will b e 6 days for bow and the last 3 for MZ.

Is baiting going to be allowed in NJ?

From: Shug
26-Jun-16
Tracker...yes baiting is legal with some limitations.... you can't sit within 100 yards if you are in a tree stand or man made blind.. Natural blow down or rock pile etc you can sit as close as you like

27-Jun-16
Pedals is famous!

From: longbeard

Yes Chip I saw that bear on the evening news the other day...pretty neat how he gets around. Did he have a wounded front leg at some point?

28-Jun-16
They think he prob was hit by a car.

From: Bou'bound

Shug are they having a season this year? I remember a hunt I went on with you guys and the first thing I saw was a big bear.

From: Shug

Thanks...all depends on my shoulder. ..I'm putting off shoulder surgery till just after the season but I'm trying to build my shoulder enough to shoot

From: Bowboy

Very nice looking bears! Good luck and shoot a big one!

From: Ken Taylor

New Jersey bears have it all - great genetics, a long growing season, abundant food, and historically, an extremely limited harvest.

Mark, I sincerely appreciate you thinking of me but those dates overlap with my moose season at home.... if only it was a little later or a few weeks earlier!

As you know, moose meat is our most important staple and we have been out of moose for a while now (because we share a lot) and we are nearing the end of our caribou meat.

You and Angelo should do well - have a great hunt! I will be with you in thought.
