About hunting in North America
North America has some of the greatest hunting and some of the finest game animals found anywhere in the world. Hunting opportunities in North America are tremendous and vary greatly from whitetail hunting in Eastern hardwood forests to elk hunting in high alpine meadows of the Rocky Mountains to mule deer in the deserts of Sonora to muskox in the Canadian Arctic. The success of North America’s wildlife management is attributed to the “North American Model of Wildlife Conservation,” which relies on money generated by hunters, through licenses and a surcharge on the purchase of hunting gear, for the funding required to conserve and maintain game animals. Under this model, game animals in North America have made a tremendous comeback over the past century and thrive throughout the continent in record numbers today. Because hunting in North America is managed at the state and provincial level, hunting methods, traditions, ethics, and laws are different from one region to another. For example, black bears may be legally hunted over bait in some states and provinces, are hunted with dogs in others, and can be legally taken only by spot-and-stalk in others. It’s crucial to study the laws and regulations of the state or province you are hunting in. Wildlife agencies in each state and province generally have excellent, detailed websites where the information may be found.

Newfoundland Moose Hunt 2019 Canada
Our hunt starts on Monday. If you are flying into Newfoundland via Deer Lake Regional Airport, plan to arrive on Saturday. We can arrange hotel bookings and you pay upon check-out. On Sunday, ground transportation will be provided to Peter Stride’s Pond, from where we fly you into our camp. On-site transportation is provided by boats and Argos. The use of boats allow us cross ponds to get to desired hunting grounds quickly and easily. Our boats are strategically placed to give guests easy access to prime hunting areas. The Argos are hardy vehicles ideally suited to get through the roughest terrain in the area, yet still be able to accommodate a guide, hunter and their animal. Moose is Newfoundland’s most popular big game animal and can weigh up to 1,200 lbs. With some of the highest moose populations in North America, it’s no wonder that Newfoundland is the destination for serious big game hunters. You will hunt from our main lodge or one of our spike camps. We mainly use spot and stalk technique. Let our experienced guides call out a moose on your next hunt with us. Whether you Fly-in or Drive, we are very accessible and only two hours from the Port-aux-Basques Ferry from Nova Scotia. If you are driving, it makes taking your meat back home that much easier and we are only 16 to 18 hour’s drive from the New York City and Boston areas, and even closer if you live in Atlantic Canada. When you successfully complete your hunt, the animal is de-boned in the field and placed in bags. Your guide will use a boat and/or Argo to get your meat back to the Lodge as soon as possible for hanging in our meat shed. The meat is checked regularly until it is flown out of camp.
