Black bears were taken in five of the seven counties where the 2010 hunt was held resulting in a total harvest of 592 animals according to the state.
As one would expect, Sussex County led the list with 338 bears taken by hunters with Warren County next with 112.
The average field-dressed female was 179 pounds and the average field dressed male was 257 pounds. The largest adult male was 651 pounds dressed with an estimated live weight of more than 750 pounds.
There were no hunting accidents reported for the six-day season.
