At 650 pounds, it’s either you or him spread out on the floor.
The black bears of Newfoundland and Labrador tend to be bigger due to a genetic predisposition and low hunting pressures. Here, you’ll find approximately 10,000 of North America's black bears, some topping a whopping 650 pounds. There are two black bear seasons – one in the spring (April – July) and one in the fall (September – November) with rifle or bow. You can also take two black bears (either sex) per licence.
