Trenton, NJ –-(AmmoLand.com)- It’s imperative that anyone interested in reintroducing the concept of “conservation” to Trenton, and reminding our legislators and policy makers that we conservationists support and expect sound game management policy, attend the bear policy meeting on Tuesday.

Regardless of whether or not there is a bear hunt our attendance demonstrates our commitment to the outdoors and that we are willing to get out of our comfort zones whether it’s to support a bear hunt or to prove we will go to the polls to vote in elections.

Our attendance is not as much about a bear hunt as it is our willingness to show we are grassroots activists in our support for fishing and hunting as game management tools that support sensible conservation policy.

ACTION: As the Anti’s have stated below: “You do not have to be a NJ resident to comment on the policy. Your comments do not need to be long. They can just be a few sentences.”

Here is a suggested comment you can copy and paste after following the link below:

I support the proposed bear management plan. Please do not be swayed by a few vocal minority groups as they do not represent opinion of the majority of people that support science based wildlife management.

You can submit your comments at the following link.

PS – Below is a release from animal extremists. They apparently will be renting buses to bring people to Trenton as a show of their support of granting “rights” to animals as a means of conservation policy.

The NJ Fish and Game Council is now accepting public comments on their draft Comprehensive Black Bear Management Policy, which includes hunting. Hunting is cruel to the bears, and will not reduce human/bear conflicts. The best way to reduce human/bear conflicts is by controlling garbage and other bear attractants.

A recent survey [by HSUS] found that an overwhelming majority of NJ voters favor non-lethal management of bears.

The deadline for submitting comments is June 18, 2010. Comments can be submitted via regular mail:

Larry Herrighty
CBBMP
Division of Fish and Wildlife
Department of Environmental Protection
P.O. Box 400
Trenton, New Jersey 08625-0400

You can also submit comments through the agency’s webform. You do not have to be a NJ resident to comment on the policy. Your comments do not need to be long. They can just be a few sentences.

A personal communication is best, but if you’re short on time or don’t know what to say, you can use the Humane Society of the US webform.

The Bear Education And Resource Group (BEAR Group) will be running buses to the meeting, and has much more information on their website.

Those bears that have lost their fear of humans, through overcrowding and the Walt Disney attitude of some people, will be culled. The bear population can than be better managed through regulated hunting which will reduce Human/bear conflict. The special tax Hunters pay when purchasing equipment, ammo etc. funds conservation. Basically hunters perform a part of the management process at their own expense while injecting cash into the local economies. Or, during this time when we are laying off cops and fireman, we can hire trash wardens and fund special "bear awareness" training specialists of dubious value.
