New Brunswick’s forests have provided direct access to wildlife for food and sport.

In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the province was a prime destination for sport hunters from the eastern seaboard of the United States and from Europe. Special excursions by train were available and the guides who accompanied the keen hunters were counted among the best in the world.
