Looks like I need to find a place in New Jersey to hunt. My NY bear got ruined by the current weather. Any suggestions but not over the open internet...

Yes indeedy! It’s a secret plot hoping for some reciprocity on my next elk hunt.

Oops did I say that out loud? 🤣🤣


Truthfully, while some areas are better for bears than others (Sussex County - vs - Hunterdon County for example) there is probably not a piece of public on the map in those zones that doesn’t have bears using it. Of course, some of those spots may have better habitat and many dozens of bears in them, so whether you see one or are successful will vary depending on where. All of the areas have deer in varying numbers too (fewer in unbroken wooded tracts, and many in anything near cropland or suburbia) and it is a combo hunt which takes the edge off of needing to only see a bear.

I thought you couldn’t hunt over bait?
Regulations read can't hunt or have gun within 300ft of a bait site.

I got some honey do list things done today so hoping for good conversation to get agreement that going last minute to New Jersey to bear hunt and leave 4 kids behind during school week is a good idea. Booked a charter for Wednesday afternoon for Striper. Can cancel till Sunday but main bank account got used not the farm business /hunting petty cash account. Hope paper trail doesn't mess this up. Hope Bass are still blitzing like they have been. Could complete two outdoor goals in a week, getting a bear and catching a striped bass.
