State officials say hunters have killed 202 bruins as of Thursday. That compares to 228 during the same period last year.

The six-day hunt is taking place in four designated areas in parts of Sussex, Warren, Morris, Passaic, Bergen, Somerset and Hunterdon counties.

State officials say 123 of the bears killed so far were in Sussex County.

State officials say they need the hunt to control the black bear population, which grew to about 3,000 in the hunting area in 2012.
