It's ridiculous to be the only state in northeast without a bear season. The local papers admit we overrun and they don't even run trail cams. My neighbors freak out when they see them in yards a few times per year. Little do they know how many are 150-200 yards into the woods. A cop got in trouble in recently for shooting one to protect his grandkid and pet. He got of all charges, but people still going crazy about it

For sure. Can't carry pistol when bowhunting anyway. I'd love to see him during daylight. Would rather not see him in my headlamp though lol

New Jersey has no Black Bear Season either.

North Jersey has a HUGE Population  of Black Bears..

They canceled it? They had one for a while.

Gov Murphy shut down Bear hunting on all  public and state land in 2019 or 2020 .  In 2021 the arrogant ahole shut down the entire state to bear hunting even with the NJ F+G wanting an emergency bear hunt due to bears being out of control. Even farmers who were have their crops destroyed by overpopulated bears out of control could not do anything about it . Now they want some plan that needs to be approved by the same Lib screwballs who got bear season shut down in order to have a limited season. Good luck with that !  I believe there has been at least 2 people mauled by bears in NJ this year . Bears are everywhere down there . People are bringing their kids to school because there are so many roaming through neighborhoods .

I am sure it has, since it was new back in the 1950’s .  I like the old non frost free ones like that because the meat don’t dry out too much in them.  
Back strap momma is a deer fridge filler for sure.  
 
A little pressed for time tonight so I didn’t get a chest girth measurement.  She was very fat and didn’t have any milk in her.  Coyotes must have got this year’s fawn.  
 
I trimmed all the external fat that I could and she’s in the fridge till Saturday late morning.  ML is cleaned, and all gear is washed.   
 
Only glitch was I forgot my Gerber saw so I brought grandpas old meat saw back with the tractor when I fetched her to cut thru the pelvis.  I always do that to make sure everything near the tenderloins is rinsed clean (with fresh blood from forward of the diaphragm) of any piss or poop.  I’d rather my tenderloins taste like blood than that stuff.

It’s getting closer this weather isn’t helping with my patience for the season.  We are looking at high 30s low 40s Thursday night into Friday morning 

The last couple of weeks are the hardest anyway,and the cold yemps only make it worse...but we are almost there!!!

I thought you were only going to post in the live thread from NY due to TV blackout laws
