Pennsylvania has covered a third of the distance needed to set a state record black bear harvest.

Through an early archery bear season in selected Wildlife Management Units (WMUs), two new October firearms bear seasons and the first week of a two-week statewide archery bear season, Pennsylvania hunters took a preliminary harvest of 1,540 bears. A statewide four-day firearms bear season is set start Nov. 23, and two extended bear seasons of varying lengths in selected WMUs start Nov. 30.
