Hunting on Newfoundland
Moose hunting on Newfoundland begins in early September and continues to the end of November. To make the most of the short hunting season the outfitter operates 7 remote hunting lodges and a number of spike- and tented camps. For this reason it is possible to enjoy successful hunts throughout the season.
This hunting tour stretches over 7 days, and includes 6 days hunting, from Monday to Saturday (Hunting is not allowed on Sundays here on Newfoundland). If possible it is best if hunters arrive on a Sunday, when they will be met at the airport by our outfitter, who will then bring them to a nearby hotel. The following morning you will continue on to the hunting camp where you will be based by helicopter or float plane. After breakfast/lunch you will begin the hunt.
Typically you will see moose every day during the hunt (depending on the weather conditions) and a diligent hunter should find it possible to shoot a handsome bull with in a couple of days.
All hunting is carried out with 2:1 guiding, which is to say there will be one guide with 2 hunters. If you prefer to hunt with your own individual guide it is possible to arrange 1:1 guiding on payment of a supplement. The outfitters fine reputation and the game-rich hunting districts they offer has attracted some of the best hunting guides and staff to work with them - some with over 30 years of experience.
After flying to the town of Deer Lake on Newfoundland, via Toronto, our outfitter advises all hunters to stay in a hotel in Deer Lake both before and after the hunt.
