Introduced to the Island in 1904, this impressive animal has become highly populated throughout Newfoundland. The Island of Newfoundland has the highest moose over any area in North America with conservative estimates at around 120,000. Our hunting areas have a high population density; this is reflected in our success rates which are between 85-95%. Normally, the rut begins throughout the last week of September and continues nearly to the end of October.
Our most common moose hunting method is spot, stalk and calling. Our guides are very experienced and knowledgeable in their field, working hard to ensure that you have a successful hunt. The big game hunting season opens on the second Saturday in September, two weeks prior to this is for bow hunting only. During rifle season hunters can hunt with rifle, black powder or bow.
A bear license can be added to a moose hunt for the cost of the license. When a bear is harvested a trophy fee will apply.
Hunts at our fly-in lodges are one-on-one guiding.
We took 4 nice bulls, two 14 points, big 11 point and a 18 pointer. Great guides all around. Great food. Just go, you won’t be disappointed.
This was my second trip with Moose Valley Outfitter. As expected, all four of saw lots of moose and were all successfull.
Hi Dean. I wanted to thank you, Sheldon, Hector, Chuck, Calvin and Elsie again for another terrific week filled with great memories and experiences! I have enjoyed my past two trips immensely and hope to return another time in the future.
Dean: I want to let you know I had a great time regardless of the bad weather. Please let Ivan, Terry and Reggie know that they did a super job.
The four of us in our group have hunted all over the world and we are all in agreement that this is one of the finest groups of people that could be gathered to run a hunting operation.
A great operation in super moose and caribou country; in fact the best I have seen in Newfoundland after 15 or more trips.
Dean I wanted to thank you for a great hunt. Thanks for all your help getting us back and forth to the airport in Deer lake and seeing us off. You truly are a professional and it doesn’t end with the hunt.
Dean, just to let you know I got home yesterday morning. Thanks again for a great hunt. I’ll see you in Harrisburg and we’ll talk about my next hunt.
Our lodges are located in the heart of Newfoundland’s remote interior. They are quite comfortable and located in some of the best moose/caribou areas in Newfoundland. Each lodge is licensed and inspected by the government of Newfoundland annually.
