Bear Hunt

Biologists believe that Black Bears on the island of Newfoundland may be some of North America's largest. A bear weighing 312 kg (687 pounds) was captured and released by wildlife personnel during field surveys.... and that was spring weight! Sportsmen have harvested up to 304 kg (670 pounds), and many specimens have exceeded a quarter ton! Approximately 75 percent of our hunters kill Black Bear. Most hunters see bear but as we don't bait, your hunt for bear is more challenging. During Black Bear season, bears are usually seen in pairs. Our bear hunts are carried out next to the boundary of Gros Morne National Park which has some of the biggest and most abundant Black Bear in Newfoundland. The bears we have killed here have averaged over 300 lbs with some weighing over 450 lbs.  Our stands are approximately 3 miles apart and have been put in with the bow hunter in mind. This is extremely beneficial to the rifle hunter. They are located close to the logging road and the guides will have constant radio contact with the hunter. We combine our bear hunts with fishing for Brook Trout and Atlantic Salmon. We have access to two of Newfoundland's most productive rivers for Atlantic Salmon. The waters fished for trout have produced some of Newfoundland's largest, in excess of four (4) lbs. Weather conditions in our area during the bear hunting season (mid September - mid October) can vary greatly. Day temperatures may exceed 40 degrees Fahrenheit with well below freezing temperatures at night, so come prepared. Rain gear and rubber boots are a must. Parsons Pond Outfitters P.O.

When most seasoned hunters travel to hunt black bear they compare it to hunting bear in Newfoundland. Whether you hunt with a rifle, bow or muzzleloader, there are few places that offer you the chance to take trophy black bear in the 350 - 550 pound class, Spring weight. High success rates, competitive prices, well- trained guides and food you simply can’t stop eating, as well as our beautiful spring days will keep you coming back. Newfoundland black bears have a tendency to grow larger than bears on the mainland of North America because of their genetic makeup and the fact that there is an abundance of protein in moose and caribou meat as well as berries and fish, and very little hunting pressure. Very few Newfoundlanders hunt bear. The bear density is one of the highest on the North American continent. You can also take time to fish for the Atlantic Salmon or Wild Brook Trout. Most days you will see more than one bear. Last season all of our hunters had a chance to take two bears. The second bear can be taken for an additional fee. Our bear hunts take place on the Southern boundary of Gros Morne Park in Northern Central Newfoundland and your guide will check and bait your stand every day. You will be hunting in some of the best near hunting areas in the province. You will need a big wall! We have lots to offer the serious bear hunter...so put us at the top of your list of places to go! IS YOUR WALL BIG ENOUGH?
