The haul of 1,337 bears by hunters in New York in 2012 was the third highest count in history, the state Department of Environmental Conservation reported Tuesday.

The total surpassed the 1,258 bears harvested in 2011. The state’s report said the numbers were affected by food availability and snowfall.

Only the 1,864-bear harvest of 2003 and the 1,487-bear harvest of 2009 were higher than the 2012 total.

A complete summary of the 2012 bear harvest with breakdown by county, town and Wildlife Management Unit is available at www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/42232.html.
