On Newfoundland we can offer this attractive fly-in hunt for black bear. The flight out to your camp by helicopter or float plane is an adventure in itself, giving you the chance to see the impressive scenery and rich animal life of Newfoundland from above.
The black bear hunts take place at baited locations within the hunting district that are regularly visited by black bears of all sizes.
Hunters keep watch over the baits from a distance and when a suitable black bear shows itself you will begin stalking it, either on foot or by boat. The hunt usually starts during the afternoon and continues until darkness falls, when the bears will be at their most active around the baits. However it is possible to see bears during other times of the day, and some times very close to camp!
This hunting tour stretches over 7 days, and includes 6 days hunting, from Monday to Saturday (Hunting is not allowed on Sundays here on Newfoundland). If possible it is best if hunters arrive on a Sunday, when they will be met at the airport by our outfitter, who will then bring them to a nearby hotel. The following morning you will continue on to the hunting camp where you will be based by helicopter or float plane. After breakfast/lunch.
It is quite normal to see bears every day during the hunt (depending on the weather) and a number of different baited locations are used in the area. Some of these locations are very remote and you never know what might turn up at the baits here at any time!
