Bear hunt going well despite protests

Season shaping up

Hunters in New Jersey apparently aren’t letting a few protests get in their way.

In two days of hunting, sportsmen have bagged 309 bruins. They’re going to have to go quite a bit to top last year’s mark of 592, especially with foul weather setting in over the Garden State.

Police appear to be doing a good job of keeping animal-rights protesters from disrupting hunts.

The New Jersey Herald has a pretty good account of the season so far. Interesting reading!
