Be aware of the basic add-ons. You have the price of the hunt. Then you have to consider whether these items are included or not: your licence, an export permit, skinning and processing(cut & wrap), accomodations and meals. A basic hunt package can really build up quickly if these are not inclusive items.

Baiting is illegal in NF, and although they do have a population their success rate isn't as high as you would think.

Untrue, and untrue.
Baiting is legal here, and quite likely the best way to bag a bear. I did it this spring past.
Newfoundland has a bear population of approximately 10,000 (+), with a human population of ~ 508, 000. It's a fairly large province, geographically speaking (wide open), with inhabitants spread out over a large area. This equals much less hunting pressure.
Success rates stats may be skewed as many or most hunters that visit this province generally pick up a bear licence in the event that they spot (stalk) a bear while hunting other big game (e.g. moose, caribou). Some may never take an animal, perhaps by choice.
Here is the website of a reputable outfitter that baits very close to my site. They have had great success. It's not within your specified price range, but I'll sumit it for your thought.

I stand corrected. I came by my misinformation honestly - when I looked into going moose hunting I had two outfitters tell me that.

Yeah, sometimes (mis)information gets thrown around.
Be honest - you were just worked up thinking about those moose steaks and forgot about everything else.

Actually it was the fishing. I love hunting but if I ever had to (shudder) choose fishing would win hands down.

Fall Hunt

If you ever consider a fall hunt for bear, up here in Northern Ontario (and I don't mean Muskoka...local joke..), we have bear like weeds and baiting is allowed. We have a few outfitters here in Cochrane, ON and I could get you the cost of the hunt.
On one site it's about $1095 CAN plus license, taxes, meat processing and export permit. PM me for the site. They offer also Fly in Moose, Fishing and Snowmobile packages.
I'm NOT affiliated with any hunting outfit!

Big Paw Outfitters in Renous, New Brunswick

I see that this post is a bit older now and has a lot of responses but for future reference you should look at Big Paw Outfitters. He is located in Moncton, NB but his Black Bear Hunting Lodge is located in Renous, NB.

I don't know if it is wrong to leave a link in a post so I won't but if you take his company name and make it all one word and add the dot com you will have the address.

I do believe he is completely book already for 2009 but you can still keep it in mind for next year.
