The North American black bear is the best known and most widespread of the North American bears. Adult black bears, standing over three feet at the shoulders, have a predominantly black coat that is smooth and short haired. A combination of genetics and very low hunting pressure make the Newfoundland Black Bear bigger than any of its North American cousins. Frequently weighing over 500 lbs, their numbers are estimated at over 10,000 animals. It is only a matter of time before a Newfoundland Black Bear shatters the current North American records. These magnificent predators make for an interesting hunt for the knowledgeable and experienced hunter.
