report by WNBZ

The Department of Environmental Conservation has released the results for the black bear hunting season and for the second year the bear take in the Adirondacks has been below average.

A total of 318 bears were killed by hunters this past season, 70-percent below the 10-year average.

DEC speculates on reason for the decline might be the abundance of berries and other foods during late summer and early fall. The supply of food might have reduced bear movements, making them less vulnerable to hunters.

Locally hunters took 37 bears in Essex County. Three bears were taken in North Elba and Wilmington.

In Franklin County 28 bears were killed. Four in Tupper Lake during early muzzleloader season and six in the Town of Santa Clara during the regular season.

Big game hunters harvested 113 bears in the Allegany range and another 365 in the Catskills.

Meanwhile the DEC is reporting another safe, successful and chronic wasting disease-free season for deer hunters.

The deer take last season was 189,000 statewide, up slightly from the previous season. The small increase was expected due to management actions in 2004 and 2005 aimed at rebuilding and stabilizing deer populations.

“New York Hunters once again had a safe and successful deer season, said acting DEC Commissioner Carl Johnson. “We are also pleased that despite testing almost 8,000 deer in 2006, no new cases of chronic wasting disease have been detected.”

In Essex County hunters took 1,053 deer, down slightly from the previous year’s total of 1,128. Hunters in Franklin County had more success, with a deer take of 1,333.
