The species of moose found in Newfoundland is known as the Eastern Canadian Moose; on our island they are more plentiful than any other place in North America (100,000+) and yield an average antler spread in the 35-45 inch range. Mature bulls range from 1,100 – 1,200 pounds with some approaching the 1,400-pound range. Adult cows average approximately 800-900 pounds. For more information, please see the section on moose within the Department of Environment and Conservation website.
The Newfoundland and Labrador bow hunting season runs from the last Saturday in August until the end of December preceding the rifle season by two weeks, which begins the second weekend in September. There are a limited number of moose licenses available per season, so book your hunt early.
Our guides use and instruct hunting techniques such as calling and spot and stalk hunting. The most common length of shots average about 100 to 200 yards, although it is not uncommon to see shots ranging from 250 to 300 yards. We hunt early morning, break for lunch and the majority of days we hunt until late evening.
