In Canada it is possible to hunt Canadian moose, grizzly bear, black bear, caribou, mountain goat, dall sheep, stone sheep, bighorn sheep, whitetail deer, puma, bobcat, lynx, wolf, wolverine and sitka deer.
Many outfitters here use horses as pack animals during the hunt and on the journey out to the hunting district. Hunting is usually carried in areas with no roads, which makes the horse the best means of transport in the huge areas of wilderness here. However, where there are roads, pickups, 4wd drive vehicles and ATVs will be used. In areas with many rivers and lakes, boats are the main means of transport. Snow scooters may also be used if it is a pure winter hunt. The hunting methods employed will depend on the district, the game species and the season in which you are hunting. While hunting for black bear and wolf may simply involved using baits, normally the hunt will take the form of spot and stalk. Winter hunts for puma, bobcat and lynx involve using dogs. Calling up the huge Canadian moose during the rut can be very successful. It is possible to bring your own hunting rifle. You simply need to have a import permit for weapon s, which is a declaration you complete in the Canadian airport. Diana will help you make the necessary preparations for this. Many outfitters also offer weapon hire to visiting hunters..
The weather in Canada can vary a great deal, rain, storms, snow, and sunshine are all possible, so hunters should take care to pack the correct equipment and be well prepared to meet the conditions they are likely to meet during the time of year they visit, taking into account if you will be hunting up in the mountains or not. We will, of course, give you good advice on what to pack for your tour.
