About the North American Black Bear
The North American black bear is the most known and 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 mixture of genetics and very low hunting pressure make the Newfoundland Black Bear larger than any of its North American cousins. Frequently weighing over 500 lbs, their numbers are estimated at over 10,000 animals. It’s only a matter of time before a Newfoundland Black Bear breaks the existing North American record. These superb predators make for a stimulating hunt for the knowledgeable and experienced hunter.
