Black Bear Hunting Information

Black bears are native animals to Newfoundland and Labrador. Black bears roam large territories of heavily wooded areas and dense bush.  Populations of Black bears are believed to be about 600,000, with more than 380,000 in Canada. Population numbers in Newfoundland and Labrador are estimated at 10,000 bears.

The average size of a black bear is approximately 5 ft long, with a shoulder height varying from 3-4 ft high. Adult males weigh about 300-350 lbs although weights of more than 640 lbs have been recorded. Females are much smaller than males, averaging in weight from 150-250 lbs.

There are two seasons that we can hunt black bears in Newfoundland, in the spring and the fall. Also, there are two possible ways to hunt black bears; bait it or spot and stalk.

  • Black bears emerge from dens and begin searching for food in early spring, and will eat almost anything available. Foods such as plants, berries, ants, fish, small mammals, and birds. Also eat carrion or garbage, and are often attracted to garbage dumps, campsites, or homes where food is readily available. In spring they are known to prey on moose and caribou calves.

                                                            IN THE FALL

          most of our fall hunting this is done by spot and stalk 

          we do some baiting not alot because the bears are feeding on berries this time of year 

          and they are hard to keep on a bait 

                                                    SPRING HUNTING

           baiting in the spring works well because there is not a lot for bears to feed on

          so we take full advantage of this and bait every second day and than hunt from                   tree stands  over looking the bait sites.
