Black Bear Hunts

Newfoundland black bears are being harvested in the 600 lbs range and the population is currently out of control. These bears are generally larger in stature than its North American cousin. This is why Newfoundland is a top destination for trophy black bear hunts.

Backed by almost 20 years of experience running an outfitting business, here at Red Indian Lake Outfitters, we can lead you through proper routes and provide you the with highest probability of tagging a large Newfoundland black bear.

We are blessed with excellent spot and stock bear hunting. The high plateau areas, which we hunt, are abundant with wild berries and high vantage points; a combination that equates to spot and stock bear hunting that is second to none. You may opt for a specialized spot and stalk bear hunt or the stumble on bear option. The stumble option allows you to add a bear tag to your moose or caribou and you only pay a trophy fee if a bear is harvested during you moose hunt or caribou hunt.

Information regarding our black bear hunts and the bear hunting season in Newfoundland and the dates can be found here.

Black Bear
For The Extreme Adventurer

Mother Nature has provided Newfoundland with black bear that some say has genetically become it’s own breed. Standing among few at the top of the food chain, these predators feed on young moose and caribou, wild rodents, and for desert grasses and berries.

Hunter Testimonials

Hunting Area 13 with Red Indian Lake Outfitting was exciting. On the last day of our hunt and on the last hour we were successful. We never give up thanks to my friend and hunting guide Derek Keats.

I have been hunting with Red Indian Lake Outfitting for 10 years. I have been lining up hunts and taken as many as 22 hunters a single year with 14 to 15 repeats. You will not find a more professional outfitting group or better accommodations.
