About hunting in New Brunswick
The Canadian Maritime province of New Brunswick is full of rugged and scenic natural beauty with magnificent hardwood and evergreen forests. The northern part of the province is mountainous and forested; here you will find the remote and rugged Miramichi Highlands as well as the Chaleur Uplands and the Notre Dame Mountains, which reach 2,680 feet. The eastern and central portions of the province consist of forested lowlands with an abundance of swamps, lakes, and rivers. New Brunswick has an excellent and growing population of large black bears, and it offers both spring and fall seasons for large bruins. Bear hunts are typically conducted over bait, and nonresident success rates average between 60 and 70 percent. Moose populations are also doing well, with an estimated 30,000 moose throughout the province. Nonresident moose hunters must use the services of a licensed guide, and success rates are as high as 80 percent. White-tailed deer hunting is also popular, with a population of some 85,000 deer, and nonresidents can buy over-the-counter buck licenses.
