Newfoundland Outfitter #1 Eastern Canada Moose Hunt
Newfoundland Outfitter #1 Moose Hunts
A True Wilderness Adventure For the Those Seeking an Isolated, Remote Setting
These hunts take place in a region where this Outfitter is the only one operating. An incredible landscape with phenomenal hunting where the only hunters in the field are those that hunt with him.
This Outfitter offers week long Eastern Canada Moose Hunts from three Hunting Camps located at Caribou Lake, Indian Pond and Little Lake. All hunts take place in either the Little Grand Lake Wilderness Reserve or the Little Grand Lake Ecological Reserve, where there are no other hunters in the field, other than those at his Camp. Why is this possible you might ask? Both the Ecological Reserve and Wilderness Reserve are off limits to any development and structures; but the Outfitter's Lodges were there before the Reserves were designated and as a result were permitted to remain. The Reserves are virtual undisturbed paradises, situated in the middle of Newfoundland’s wilderness and along with spectacular scenery and terrain, the area has the highest Eastern Canada Moose, Woodland Caribou and Black Bear densities on the Island.
About Newfoundland Moose
Moose, also known as Alces alces is the biggest member of the deer family. They were introduced to the Province of Newfoundland at the turn of the last century and because of the excellent forage they have increased their numbers to between 120,000 and 150,000 animals. A large Bull Moose can be an imposing and challenging quarry when they stand higher than a large saddle horse with massive antlers. A mature Bull sometimes weighs upwards of 1,500 lbs. The mating period for Moose, which is referred to as “the rut”, usually runs from mid-September to early November. The Moose who call Newfoundland home are classified as “Eastern Canadian” by “Boone and Crockett”, “Pope and Young”, and “Safari Club International”. Bow, muzzleloader and rifle hunters are welcome. The Outfitter's annual success rate for non-resident rifle hunters is running near or over 90%. It is not uncommon for a 100% success rate with the majority being Trophy Bulls.
About the Moose Hunting Experience
All the Outfitter's Moose Hunts are one-on-one guided and fly-in-only. The hunt is conducted using the spot and stalk method and during the rut, experienced Guides can call moose within range. Small boats are utilized to cross the larger bodies of water and allow hunters to cover the area in close proximity to the Main Lodges. Comfortable Lodges provide the hunter with the conveniences of a modern Lodge and the splendor of remote Newfoundland.
Unless otherwise requested, the typical Moose hunt is one week in length and runs from Sunday to Sunday. Hunters are picked up Sunday morning and taken to the base site at Deer Lake Airport and flown by helicopter to the remote hunting camps. A typical hunting day begins with a wake-up call long before daylight. After a hearty breakfast, the resident cook prepares a lunch for the field and at dawn the Hunter and Guide are off. The terrain at all three sites has open and wooded areas with lakes, valleys, knolls and mountains. It is the ultimate setting to call and\or stalk moose. Once in the field the Guide selects a vantage point, where it is possible to glass a large area. When the Trophy Bull is sighted, the choice is made whether to stalk or call the animal within range. These committed Guides go beyond the call of duty to ensure success. Most hunters are fortunate to take or have the opportunity to harvest their Moose early in the week. The Outfittter's Guides are enthusiastic and committed for the entire hunt and are on site for the seven days.
Hunters are responsible for getting to Newfoundland and a gratuity/tip to the guide and cook.
The hunt is Sunday to Sunday with Sunday being a changeover day, so the hunt is actually 6 days in length.
The overall success rate for rifle is upwards of 90%, but it generally runs upwards of 100% during early season.
As for bow hunters they will get an opportunity to stalk and kill. The actual kill rate is dependent on the bow they are using and the capability/experience of the hunter.
The meat is taken from the field to the butcher where it is vacuum packed and boxed for shipment (approximate butcher cost $250-300).
This Outfitter runs a maximum of four hunts at a camp per week, unless ther is a group request of more than four. The area is vast and all the hunters get to hunt different locations.
This Outfitter has an excellent hunt with a very high rate of repeat hunters - which speaks to the care given to the hunters and the success of the hunts.
As he states, "Once they find my operation they seldom go elsewhere."
The moose hunts are fly-in, helicopter drop to remote locations, one-on-one guided and are only offered in wilderness or ecological reserves.
