Hunters during the final day of Pennsylvania’s statewide bear season harvested 168 bears, raising the 2017 statewide season harvest to 1,796 –about a 30 percent decrease compared to 2016.  Extensive rain on the season’s opening day (November 18th) led to the harvest decline.  Archery and other early-bear season harvest data was not included in the report. Comprehensive bear harvest totals that include bears taken during the early and extended seasons will be released in the coming months.  During the statewide season, bears were harvested in 54 counties.  The top 10 bears processed at check stations were either estimated or confirmed to have live weights of 576 pounds or more.  Two bears over 500 pounds were taken on the season’s final day.
