See bear hunt review below from Tony Smotherman of Travelin' Hunter Outdoors:

"Bear hunting has not always been in my blood, but thanks to my good friend and bear guru, Dick Scorzafava, I now am a bear addict. You see, for the past few years I have quizzed Dick on why he was so obsessed with chasing black bears. His response was, “I’m going to send you on a hunt for some of the largest black bears around and you tell me when you get back why I’m obsessed”.

He sent me to meet up with Todd and Laura Wiseman of Newfoundland Adventures Ltd. of Deer Lake, Newfoundland. After catching up with Todd and his wife in the airport in Deer Lake, I come to find out that Newfoundland has the largest strain of black bear in the country as they are Island bear that have never mixed with the main land Canadian bears. They have smaller bodies, but their skulls are much larger and as we all know, that is what we want in a trophy bear.

In all my years of hunting across the country I have never ran into any one person that I considered a modern day Grizzly Adams and I must say Todd and his crew all fall under that name. They are very woods smart and know bears like no other. In the short week that I was under their roof I saw in access of 20 bears.

On big hunting trips like this one it is also about the experience and you get your share of awesome experiences there. The lodge sits on a remote lake where you drink and shower with water right from the lake…’s really untouched country. During the day the hum of the generator off in the distance probably means they are making fresh doughnuts for the evenings bait sessions. Yep, these guys are so dedicated that they have their own doughnut making machine and they are not just for the bears. I grabbed a few when they dropped of the grating and they were really good. I see why the bears roll in each evening to the bait sites by the droves.

If a black bear is on your list of adventures, you owe it to yourself to visit with Todd and
Laura. They Rock!
