Hunters today get their last chance to shoot a black bear and animal lovers will stage their final protest as New Jersey’s six-day hunt concludes tonight at sundown.
A deep freeze descended on Friday, which may have kept both the bears and the hunters indoors. By sundown, only 20 black bears had been taken to check stations, the lightest day of the hunt so far.
The basics: Bear hunt protest, Saturday, 12 to 2 p.m.
Getting in: A maximum of 160 people allowed
Location: 150 Fredon Springdale Road, Fredon, located between CR-618 and Entrance Way
