Government of New Brunswick

Every successful bear hunter must have their bear registered, and be issued a registration permit.

The bear may be left at a cold storage facility or butcher for up to 15 days if a copy of the registration permit is left with the carcass.

A bear must be registered no later than 72 hours following harvest of the bear.

There are two options to register a bear:

1. Bear Registration Station


DNRED offices

2. Online Registration

Hunters with access to the Internet may choose to register their big game harvest online:
