Moose (Alces alces) is the largest member of the deer family. Mature males sometimes weigh up to 1500 lbs. Moose were introduced to the province of Newfoundland in 1906, and because of the excellent forage have increased their numbers to 120,000. Many areas of the province boast the highest moose densities in the world. A large bull moose, standing higher than a large saddle horse and sporting a massive antler display can be an imposing and challenging quarry.
The mating period for moose, considered by many hunters the most successful time for hunting, runs from late September to early November. Notwithstanding the rut period, some of the very best times for hunting moose is after the rut, during the latter part of November. Newfoundland moose are classified as "Eastern Canadian" by "Boone and Crockett", "Pope and Young", and "Safari Club International". Though generally smaller in body and antler size than their Alaskan cousins, Newfoundland moose are no less challenging to hunt.
Note: Hunting season begins in early September with a two week "archery only" component, followed by a general season with archery, rifle and muzzleloader until the end of November.
- The initial hunt deposit required is 25% of overall hunt package cost.
Note: All account balances must be paid at least thirty days prior to arrival date unless otherwise negotiated.
