Hunting forBlack Bear

JB Outfitters provides the opportunity to hunt trophy Newfoundland black bear as part of your Newfoundland big game hunting adventure. JB Outfitters offers both a spring and fall black bear hunt.

Spring black bear hunts are excellent over bait and with spot/stalk. Fall black bear hunts can be combined with our moose hunts to form "The Hunting Adventure of a Lifetime".

With Newfoundland black bears being the largest in North America, JB Outfitters provides you an opportunity to bag an awesome trophy. Home of 10,000 black bears, we have some the largest black bears in North America, we have harvest bears that weigh over 600 pounds from our hunting area.

In fact, many trophy black bears have been taken from this area and are hanging on the walls of many homes in Europe and the United States.
