About Newfoundland

Newfoundland Black Bear HuntingBig bear country. Black bears that are likely the biggest in North America. These island bears have a genetic predisposition to large body size, biologists believe. Between 6,000 and 10,000 of these mighty bruins roam the Island of Newfoundland. And they've prospered under traditionally low hunting pressure.

Newfoundland's professional outfitters know just where to take you, and they are racking up impressive success rates on wilderness hunting adventures. They know how to take care of you. Remote hunting lodges are accessible only by float plane or helicopter, but many great lodges are easily accessible by car. Experienced local guides will take you to the best places for stalking trophy-sized bears. These beasts are proven big. Wildlife officials have captured and released a 312 kg (687 pounds) black bear. Sportsmen have taken bears weighing up to 304 kg (670 pounds), and bears over 227 kg (500 pounds) are frequently reported. In Newfoundland there are two hunting seasons for the black bear, spring and fall, and hunters can use either rifle or bow.

Why not combine your spring hunt with a salmon fishing adventure. If you're thinking of a fall hunt, consider adding moose or caribou hunting to the expedition. Many Newfoundland and Labrador outfitters offer combined outdoor adventures for serious hunters and anglers.
