Although some Sussex County residents applied for their black bear hunting permits weeks ago and are ready for the season to begin, others are skeptical as to whether there will be a hunt this year.

"They're still waiting for their permits, so nobody is really planning on going yet," said Rich Peter, Wantage resident and co-owner of Simon Peter Sports Co. in Andover Township. "If I get it and I see a bear, fine. But I didn't plan on anything extra."

Ten-thousand black bear hunting permits were made available to those individuals who have a valid 2005 Firearm or All-Around Hunting License. Those who applied for a permit should have received it this week.
