Sometimes, you get the bear. Sometimes, the bear gets you:

My 2nd cousin in NJ hunts big bucks on a small wooded parcel bounded by a K-Mart, industrial facilities, and an apartment complex. He parks behind the K-Mart in between the tractor trailer rigs.

Beau won the Black Bear/Big Bear for Wisconsin in 2016.

480#. I can hardly imagine the size of that 700# monster!

Guess who’ll be looking into getting a bear tag for NJ in the near future? LOL!

(I sent him the link.)

that allow bears to multiply and get dangerously big
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This one was 700lbs.
But isn’t a 300lb bear dangerous too?:)

Does that even make sense? Deer in these places are small, ragged imitations of what you'd find in the wild.

Note that this is only the record for bow hunting. Someone got an 829 lb black bear in NJ a few years back:

Pardon me, it’s a “Bear of Color” and fat-shaming him over his weight is just beyond the pale! < /sarc >

the high weight is the result of state restrictions on hunting that allow bears to multiply and get dangerously big

Well I suppose New Jersey has always been known for its garbage. I wonder if he was dining at Chez Dumpster.

"A 700-pound black bear killed by bow on private land in Morris County, N.J."

Probably got fat by eating lots of junk food.

Dough-nuts most likely.... however....

Ahem, it didn't forget "to take the Cannoli"

Back home in Western MD, they reinstituted black bear hunts after 51 years because the buggers were becoming a nuisance again. A neighbor opened her porch door one day to put out the trash and found one about 125 pounds, up to his tuckus in her trash can and snacking on everything. The city police rarely respond; they say it’s the responsibility of city Animal Control. The biggest one so far weighed in at 575 pounds and was seven feet tall. Most are in the 125-250 pound range, some tipping the scales at over 300. The local paper now has a Bear Watch column, and there are several killed weekly on roads in the higher elevations. It’s just a part of living in the mountains. Another aspect of it is Washington sprawl spreading so far out into what used to be rural land, it’s driving the bears westward into the hills, looking for new territory. It’s like a winter drawdown on a lake; the same amount of fish are in there, they just have less volume to spead out in.

Wife: Honey, why are you putting on your sneakers for this hike in the woods?
Husband: So I can run fast.
Wife: You’re going to outrun a bear?
Husband: No, all I have to do is outrun you, dear.
