Application information and procedures are available from Service New Brunswick centers and Natural Resources offices. http://www.gnb.ca Keyword: Natural Resources

Non-resident Black Bear Licenses are valid only for the Wildlife Management Zone specified on the license.
The holder of a Black Bear License may transport a firearm two days before the opening of or two days after the closing of the black bear season. The firearm must be unloaded, in a case properly fastened or completely wrapped in a blanket or canvas and securely tied, or in the locked luggage compartment of a motor vehicle.

When you are outside the Wildlife Management Zone indicated on your validation sticker and license during the bear hunting season, all firearms must be unloaded, in a case properly fastened or completely wrapped in a blanket or canvas and securely tied, or in the locked luggage compartment of a motor vehicle.

Non-residents are required to hunt with a licensed New Brunswick guide.
Immediately upon harvesting a black bear, the hunter must:
(a) Remove the tag from the bear license and attach it to the right foreleg of the bear.
(b) Within 72 hours of killing a bear, present the entire carcass, including the hide, for registration and tagging at the first open bear registration station. (this is done at the lodge)

The license is void for hunting black bears once the tag has been removed.

The licensed hunter who harvests a black bear must accompany the carcass to a bear registration station.
A bear registration agent will attach a plastic lock-seal tag to the hide of each bear. The registration agent will issue two copies of the registration permit to the successful hunter
