Potter Total Kill Way Down
HARRISBURG – Pennsylvania Game Commission preliminary bear harvest figures show that 3,036 bears were taken during the recently completed three-day season (Nov. 23-25) and an additional 108 bears were harvested during the two-day archery bear harvest (Nov. 18-19).

So far, the total bear harvest of 3,144 for the two seasons preliminarily ranks as the third highest statewide harvest. However, with the extended bear season in certain Wildlife Management Units (WMUs) continuing through Dec. 5, the total preliminary harvest will increase. The two highest total bear harvests were recorded in 2005 (4,164 bears taken) and 2008 (3,458). In 2006, hunters harvested 3,122 bears during all seasons.

Preliminary total bear harvest figures – including the ongoing extended bear seasons – are expected the week of Dec. 7. Official total bear harvest figures for all three seasons won’t be available until early 2010, after a thorough review of all bear harvest reports.

The preliminary three-day bear harvest by Wildlife Management Unit was as follows: WMU 1A, 8 (20 in 2008); WMU 1B, 36 (67); WMU 2C, 234 (216); WMU 2D, 118 (163); WMU 2E, 76 (114); WMU 2F, 274 (236); WMU 2G, 950 (676); WMU 3A, 246 (305); WMU 3B, 200 (289); WMU 3C, 73 (69); WMU 3D, 271 (199); WMU 4A, 120 (142); WMU 4B, 42 (41); WMU 4C, 95 (65); WMU 4D, 260 (307); WMU 4E, 32 (25); and WMU 5B, 1 (0).

County harvests by region for the three-day season, followed by the three-day 2008 preliminary harvests in parentheses, are:

Northwest: Warren, 99 (57); Forest, 58 (58); Jefferson, 56 (60); Clarion, 46 (63); Venango, 33 (63); Butler, 12 (11); Crawford, 8 (31); and Mercer, 3 (6).

Northcentral: Clinton, 239 (106); Lycoming, 239 (214); Cameron, 211 (72); Tioga, 203 (231); Potter, 174 (288); McKean, 139 (134); Clearfield, 128 (109); Elk, 119 (89); Centre, 91 (88); and Union, 31 (40).

Does anyone know what WMU's have been granted a bear season extension? I have been looking on the PA Game Commission website, but I can't seem to find it. Thank you!
