A ruling in state superior court ruled Monday says up to 25 people can demonstrate at the Franklin bear check station in Sussex County between noon and 4 p.m. each day.
A greater number will be allowed to demonstrate at two other weigh stations.
Critics of the hunt had been pushing for the Franklin station permit as it is a high-visibility site.
Environmental Protection Department officials felt it was too a dangerous a spot for a large gathering.
Officials say several dozen black bears have been killed as of Monday afternoon.
Wildlife officials say the hunt is needed to reduce a bear population now estimated at about 3,400.
