Awesome bear! I was lucky to attend THAT Sportsman's Show, even had my ticket for it and the concerts afterward paid for after being driven over 150 miles by the new girl I've been seeing. Yeah, yeah, had to make the post all about me! lol

Who would have guessed that dumpsters of moldy pizza crusts and dirty disposable diapers could put that kind of size on a bear?

If you got bashed on the head with those heavy plastic dumpster covers day after day you would develop a thick skull too! Just kidding. We do have some big bears here. I try to shoot small (under 200 pounds) bears that are not dumpster divers as they are better eating. We now can shoot 2 a year, one in October and one in December. October is bow or muzzelloader, December is muzzeloader or shotgun. Governor put a stop to shooting bears on state land so it can be hard for an out of state hunter to find a place to hunt. Best bet is in the federal land along the Delaware River in Sussex and Warren counties. Baiting is legal. Lot of bears in the 300-400 pound range.

I have heard rumors that the Governor of NJ is giving in to the lunatic tree huggers and placing a total ban on bear hunting without any scientific data from Fish&Game.

He went against fish and game already and banned bear hunting on public land.
