not exactly sure what you were asking about ? but will pass along what i know also if you go to the top of forum you can go to fish and whildlife links for fees and regulations .
quick run down :
bears --- lots of bears ---- licences for non residents through an outfitter (each outfitter recieves licences from government ) or you can enter a draw for a permit ,you have to pick the zone you wish to hunt before draw ,will need a guide (if you have afriend who has a class 2 guide licence they can take you ) .outfitters charge $1000 and up for a week hunt 1 bear
deer--- pop is down but coming back up some parts of NB have larger pops than others again you have to have a guide either Class1 (outfitter ) or Class II . good winter for deer this year not a lot of snow if it just keeps up most of the pop will make it through the winter.
if you want any other info let me know -------- herb

Thanks Herb,I was curious as to how much it would cost in licenses and fees to do some deer hunting.I had forgotten about the guide issue.
What if you are a friend of a private landowner,is the quide still required?
I wouldn't come over if I had to hire a guide,I simply can't afford it.
Without meaning to step on anyones toes, doesn't the guide law kind of strangle the opportunity for a seasonal economy.I'm sure you get outfitter business but if your town is like my little town the economy would surely suffer if we lost the business of those that came to hunt and fish on thier own.
I certainly can see the benefits of the guide law and there are times when I wish we had one.But all in all the guys that come in and spend thier money to get here are usually the ones we don't have to worry about.They come to hunt and fish.

that is what the Class II licence is for .you can't charge some one if you have a class II licence .it is for a friend or family member to get so his non resident friend can hunt or fish .
don't know how clear that was .if i have a Class II licence i can guide one person ,but i can't charge for it . if your friend will get a classII licence he can take you hunting or fishing .also if you own property here in NB you can (i think) get a resident licence .i would do some checking on this first !!!------ herb

Hi, yes this is true for NB....if you owned land and pay taxes on it in NB..you can purchase a residence hunting and fishing license....don't need a guide....So wanna buy some land? haaha

That's true sbishop, except for the moose draw. For a moose license, your primary residence has to be in NB http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-rolleyes-green.gif I've been sorting this out with DNR.. I own land in NB, pay taxes on it, and was born in NB. I qualify as resident for everything except moose. I live in Arizona, now.

welcome muskrat ,
even if you are living where it is warm and there is no snow .now in NB you can get a nonresident moose license through an outfitter .----- herb http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-biggrin-aqua.gif

Yeah, but the NR moose license is like, what - one in a billion chance?? And the license, if you get drawn, I'll need to put a 2nd mortgage on my house? http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-rolleyes-green.gif

i don't think for non residents it is a draw .only can get it through an outfitter ,government allows so many to the outfitters , i can check but i think the licence is $450 .
last time i was drawn i was 19 now i am 48 .think it is about time!!----- herb
