New Jersey's six-day black bear hunt begins Monday in four areas of what
is known as "bear country," the northern parts of the state where black
bears are most prevalent.
The hunting sections include Warren County
and part of Hunterdon County. Sussex and parts of Somerset, Passaic and
Bergen counties are also included. The season kicks off just as
Pennsylvania's bear hunting window comes to a close.
"There's a place
for bears in New Jersey," said Larry Ragonese, press director of the New
Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. "It's just not in your home."
