New Jersey Black Bear Management Policy Open for Public Comments

Thursday, April 22, 2010

Please Stand Up and Make Your Voices Heard!

Last month, the NRA-ILA sent a statewide email which announced the first scheduled bear hunt in New Jersey since 2005. The information below provides an opportunity for your voice to be heard in support of the bear hunt.

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and the New Jersey Fish and Game Council have submitted the proposed, Comprehensive Black Bear Management Policy (CBBMP) for publication in the April 19 edition of New Jersey Register.

A 60 day public comment period to the Division of Fish and Wildlife is now available with comments being accepted through June 18. It is imperative that wildlife policy makers hear from New Jersey residents today supporting this science based hunt, which for years was suppressed by Governor Jon Corzine (D) and his anti-hunting political appointees.

A public hearing will be held Tuesday, May 11 at 6pm in the New Jersey State Museum. Located at 205 West Street, Trenton, NJ.

Please show your support and do not let groups like PETA and the Humane Society of the United States stand in the way of science-based wildlife management and conservation with their virulent, unfounded anti-hunting rhetoric! You can either submit written comment to the address listed below or electronically through the Division of Fish and Wildlife at http://www.njfishandwildlife.com/bearpolicy10_comment.htm.
