Unfavorable weather conditions dashed the hopes for Pennsylvania to break the 4,000- barrier for a third time in annual black bear harvests.  The Game Commission says the 2018 bear harvest came in at 3,153 bears, 11th-best all-time, but also the lowest harvest in the past 11 years.  Even with new bear-hunting opportunities – including an earlier archery season that overlapped with a week of archery deer season, the bear harvest failed to reach management objectives.  Pennsylvania’s all-time bear harvest high was recorded in 2011, when 4,350 bears were taken.
