I’d like a .338wm All weather Bear rifle in the safe but probably won’t buy one. I know Americans a ought six fans but is a 7mm-8 enough? .308? .300wm? Other suggestions . My .375 is Blued Timber CZ550 American Safariall of those rifle cartridges are adequate for black bears. Talk to your outfitter if you have doubts about your choice. I've personally used a .257 Roberts, 30-06, and .375H&H. All three worked as expected.
I did a moose hunt in newfoundland a number of years back. The moose hunt was 4k US but they threw in a bear tag for 300 more if we happened upon one. I was not so lucky but others were successful. About 30% odds incidental to the moose hunt is what they told meHere is a list of all the outfitters in Newfoundland, a bear package with two tags generally runs in the 5000$canadian range.
I live Saskatchewan and hunt bears occasionally in Saskatchewan. I hate to admit it, but British Columbia has far better bear hunting. All the BC bear hunts are spot and stalk. In Saskatchewan you will almost certainly be sitting over a bait. Near our cabin in north central BC I have seen as many as 24 bears in 24 hours. ( not hunting, just casual sightings) That would be several years worth near home.
