No Bear hunting in NJ
Stressing yet again the need to separate politics from wildlife management.
They caved in to BLM..... B ears L ives M atter!
The idiots that fight to stop the bear hunt should have to live with them! Unfortunately, they all live in the city where they never encounter any.........................
Its more political than even most people think.
Legally, the NJ bear hunt is authorized via the Black Bear Comprehensive Management Plan and then a vote of the Fish and Game Council. The old plan ran its course and expired. The new plan was developed by F&G.
Now the Governor has instructed his DEP Commissioner to NOT sign the new plan. Thus, without a valid plan, the Council cannot authorize a hunt.
Love those liberal Democrats like Gov Phil Murphy. Everything must depend on "the science." EXCEPT of course when the science doesn't support their extremist ideology!

Exactly and on point.
Those that push for these kinds pf policies dont deal in common sense. Capital Hill is full of them
NJ Farmer called me last week and wanted to know if I wanted to fill his depredation tags. Some bears will still hit the ground.
