2020 Black Bear Hunting

New Brunswick’s black bear population is currently estimated at more than 16,000 animals. Bear hunters should expect to have an average year during the 19 weeks of bear hunting opportunity in 2017.

2020 Moose Hunting

New Brunswick’s moose population appears to be growing or stable in most areas of the province, with the north-western part of the province showing the strongest growth. Moose population declines are evident in parts of southern NB. The resident moose license quota for 2015 was 3,450 licenses.  Although the moose herd appears to be relatively healthy, it is difficult to accurately assess due to the unknown quantity and distribution of animals being removed by unregulated harvest. The regulated license allocation must be conservative to insure sustainability of the moose population until a moose harvest and reporting system can be established that accommodates existing aboriginal and treaty rights.

2020 Whitetail Deer Hunting

This year does not look ideal for deer. We just experienced one of the most severe winters in the past 23 years, unfortunately immediately behind the bad winter of 2014. We estimate that 22% of the provincial herd perished during the 2015 winter. This, combined with the 18% loss in 2014, will slow population growth across the province. The greatest impact will be felt in southern NB where the winter mortality was twice the long term average. The overwintering fawn cohort will be hit the hardest, and will likely lead to fewer yearlings during the hunt. The models are suggesting a reduction in the prehunt population, and a similar reduction in the 2017 harvest. Antlerless deer permits will be adjusted to account for the change in population.

2020 Fall Firearm Season, September and November

Resident Black Bear Licenses are valid for all Wildlife Management Zones open for black bear hunting.

Non-Resident Black Bear Licenses are valid only for the Wildlife Management Zone specified on the license.

Non-Resident hunters may acquire Black Bear Licenses in either of the following two methods:

(a) Through a designated, licensed outfitter or guide who has received an allocation of Non-resident Black Bear Licenses.

(b) By entering and being successful in the computerized random access draw. Application information and procedures are available from Service New Brunswick and Natural Resources offices or on the Internet (see “Forms and Packages Links” below).

In the case of a non-resident, the purchase of a second license will depend on availability directly from an outfitter or guide with an allocation of non-resident licenses or from the Department of Natural Resources.

Non-residents, before entering the draw, please read important details found in the “Non-Resident Bear fact sheet” found under the “Forms and Packages” section on this page.

Contact your nearest Natural Resources office or click on the link under the “Related Links” menu on this page for a list of guides.
