During our Spring and Fall Black Bear hunt, we have access to 3,245 sq. kilometers in zone 5 and also 6,265 sq. kilometers in zone 7. These two zones are mainly covered by dense spruce forest which is an ideal habitat for the bears. We take Trophy Book animals every single year! One of our hunters videotaped 71 (yes, seventy-one) bears during his one week hunt with us. For the last 7 hunting seasons we have reached a 100% opportunity-for-a-shot at a bear for every hunter. Since all our stands are set up for archery, all hunters can examine their quarry at close range.
The 2014 application period extends from January 2nd to April 30.

Our Moose season may be short but it is very exciting. The New Brunswick Government has made 100 Tags available to non-resident hunters. We have been most fortunate to have a hunter every year since 1996 and we are proud to say that we have experienced a 100% success rate in the Moose hunt!

The 2010 moose-hunting season was a successful one with Mr. Ray Lovell of Illinois harvesting a 715-pound bull moose on the second morning of the hunt. The hunters saw 13 moose in 2 days. The 2011 season was a great success with Mr. Mike Kline harvesting an 825 pound 14 point bull, hunter Bernard Fiset harvesting a 790 pound 12 point bull, once again Mrs. Elodie Hache quickly harvesting a 700 pound cow moose in the first five minutes of the season and finally, owner/operator Mike Roy harvesting a 750 pound 10 point bull on the last day of the hunt. In 2013 we hosted Dr. C S Oosterveen for a moose hunt. He passed up on a cow on opening morning but The very next morning, on the way to the stand, he and his guide came upon a giant bull which they harvested. It had a 54 inch spread and field dressed at 950 pounds. A few minutes later they came upon another giant bull which they estimate to have an antler spread of well over 60 inches. Dr. Oosterveen will be back here for next year's hunt.
