Hugin disagrees with Murphy on bear hunt

By David Wildstein, August 23 2018 11:24 pm

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Bob Hugin disagrees with Gov. Phil Murphy’s decision to end New Jersey’s black bear hunt on state land.

“If we don’t do something, the bear population in New Jersey in the next four years is going to double,” said Hugin, who acknowledged that he’s hunted before but that he enjoys fishing more.

“I’m a fan of hunting as sport, if it’s done right.  As long as it’s done appropriately, and it’s really a sporting issue, I’m supportive of it,” said Hugin.  “We have a public health and safety issues with bears that have dealt with and there may be multiple solutions, including having a bear hunt.

Murphy promised during his campaign that he would ban bear hunts, and is expected to broaden the scope of his executive order next year.

“There’s not too many things I’m in agreement with Governor Murphy on,” Hugin said.
