New Jersey Black Bear Permit Apps Available October 1
The 2010 black bear hunting season is December 6-11. Anyone wishing to participate in the season must have completed a bear training seminar (see Bear Hunter Education Seminar Information) and possess a Black Bear Hunting Area Permit. The black bear permit application period will be October 1 - 30, 2010.
There are four bear hunting zones in New Jersey and hunters will be restricted to hunt only in the zone for which they possess a permit. Hunters will be limited to purchasing one black bear hunting permit, and the bag limit is one black bear per hunter.
