It was a large harvest, and a heavy one.

Pennsylvania hunters harvested a total of 3,748 bears in 2015, the third-highest tally in state history, the Pennsylvania Game Commission reported today. And a whopping 68 of those bears topped the 500-pound mark.

The harvest total represents an increase compared to 2014, when 3,371 bears were taken.

With 2015 total now official, the eight largest bear harvests all have occurred in the past decade.
