CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - This is the last weekend of the bear hunting season in New Hampshire.

The hunting season ends Tuesday, Nov. 25 in the eight wildlife management units encompassing the White Mountains and central regions of the state. For the rest of the state, bear season ended Nov. 11.

Fish and Game officials say preliminary counts indicate the bear harvest is running 32 percent higher than last year’s season, with more than 700 bears taken as of Nov. 6.

Bear biologist Andrew Timmins says that as of the first week in November, the bear harvest was running slightly above the five-year season’s average of 622 bears.

Archery season for hunting deer and turkeys runs until Dec. 15 in most wildlife management units. The firearms season for deer ends Dec. 7.
