The second leg of New Jersey's black bear hunt began on Wednesday.
Nearly 100 bears were killed in the first state-sanctioned hunt, but it apparently did not meet the goals of state wildlife officials.
That's because only 6% of those bears had ear tags, which is a determining factor used to gauge the rough size of the state's entire population.
Hunting is permitted 30 minutes after sunrise and sunset every day until Saturday.
