Newfoundland Spring Bear???

Hello folks! I am trying to plan a Spring Bear Hunt in Newfoundland 2007. I have tried to check out as many websites as possible. However I value other hunter opinions. It seems the most of the outfitters are not into baited spring hunts. Help me identify a reputable outfitter who is SERIOUS about bear hunting who is located in a great bear area. I have tried to research DNR for NFLD but can't put my finger on any harvest stats for specified regions. Also curious to know if one area of the Island consistently produces better animals. Thank Each of you for your input. Stay Safe!

Newfoundland Spring Bear???

I am not knowledgeable about Spring Bear Hunts in NFD, or if they even have them.

Here's a link you should take a peak at

http://www.advertisenorth.com/outfitters/bear_hunting.htm

I'd send an email to one of the many Outfitters,they'll point you in the right direction.

New Brunswick has a Spring Bear Hunt !!!, Nova Scotia does not.

Newfoundland Spring Bear???

You have picked a great place to go on a spring bear hunt! They have some of the largest bears in North America, particularly in the east.

Our outfitter in Newfoundland hunts bears over bait, since it is very unusual to see bears there in open spaces during the spring. They are definitely serious bear hunters and have a great area to hunt for trophy bears, having clients taking many BC bears including the 2nd largest Newfoundland bear and #20 all time BC bear ever. You can also get in some fishing for trout and land locked salmon there.

You should consider booking a trip soon, as many outfitters are filling up for this spring. If you like more information check out our website and give me a call, email, or pm. Good luck in your quest for a great black bear hunt!

nbbearhunter,
I appreciate the reply, I have been coming up to NB for several years. Hunting between Red Bank and Bathurst in Zones 7&8. The country is beautiful and the hunting is awesome. We just decided to try another Providence for a change of pace. BTW we are scheduled to be back in NB May 2007. The NFLD hunt is being planned for 2008, I made a mistake on the dates in my original post.
