New Jersey’s six-day bear hunt yielded an 829-pound bruin, which is believed to be the heaviest ever killed in the state.

Bruce Headley of Jefferson Township bagged the boar on Dec. 9 while he was hunting for deer near his home. It took the hunter, his son and two neighbors three hours to haul the bruin out of the woods.

He donated the bear to the Division of Fish and Wildlife, which hopes to have it mounted and displayed at the Pequest Natural Resource Education Center.

Headley tells The Daily Record of Parsippany he would have “traded getting two bucks instead of the bear.”
