Black Bear Hunts in New Brunswick
Spring Black Bear and Fall Black Bear Hunts
85% Success Rate • 100% Sightings
Although the Spring bear hunt officially starts the middle of April, our first hunt is in the middle of May. The reason for this, is because there is still too much snow in the woods for proper baiting and a lot of bears are not out of their dens in April. The average adult black bear weighs anywhere from 300-600 pounds.
Approximately 30 sites are maintained. These baits are started three weeks prior to the hunt and re-baited daily. All baits are located within 20 miles radius of the camps. We also encourage the hunter who has a four wheeler to bring it along to participate and travel with the guide daily to visit all bear bait sites.
There is a limit of 6 hunters/week
After booking your bear hunt you may apply for a non-resident moose license through the computer draw, and if successful come back in the fall and hunt with us for free.
