Bear Hunting

Bear hunting in Nova Scotia has had some amazing percentages of success due to the vast number of bears in recent years. The bears on average dressed weights run from 200-500 lbs, with a high percentage of bears taken with a 19″+ skull.

The season runs as follows:

Bow, crossbow, muzzle loader, rifle and shotgun the second Monday in September to the first Saturday in December.

Here at Farmland Outfitters we specialize in bear hunts from the second Monday in September for the first four weeks ending in October – with 2 to 3 active sites per hunter. All sites are monitored with trail cameras. 95% of our sites are on private property.

Special arrangements can be made if you wish to hunt for Black Bear later in the season.

We hunt only in the late afternoon and evening, at active baits with minimum hunting pressure. Through the day you may sight-see, hunt, or fish, depending on the season and package that you purchase.

Hunting is done from ladder, climbing and lock-on stands along with some ground blinds, and your safety harness must be worn at all times while in the stand.

Once you have booked a trip with us we will send you a detailed list of things to make your trip more enjoyable and successful. As well, we will send you some pictures from our sites in the weeks prior to your arrival.

Starting in 2014, Farmland Outfitters has acquired additional properties so we may continue to provide our increasing clientele a successful experience.

In 2008, Farmland Outfitters achieved the Nova Scotia Boone and Crocket record with a score of 21 10/16”.

All sports hunting with Farmland Outfitters (to date) have been fortunate to have taken Nova Scotia record book bears.
