Moose

In North America the moose is the world’s largest living deer, and our Newfoundland moose has an average antler size measuring 41 inches or 16 points.  On average an adult moose stands 6 to 8 feet high. Males will weigh 850 to 1180 lbs and females around 600 to 800 lbs [1Kg = 2.2lbs].  Moose numbers in Newfoundland have fluorished since it was originally introduced here in 1878.

Mike Kelly 2011Mating season for moose is near the last week of September to the last week of October. This is the time that the bulls are most vulnerable. During mating season, moose can be called within yards by our experienced hunting guide.

In Newfoundland, a minimum of a 24 caliber rifle is required to hunt moose. It is important to shoot for the vital areas of a moose since they are huge animals. At each lodge, our experienced Guide will take the Hunter to areas known for Moose.

After each animal is tagged, the game is professionally caped, quartered, and cared for with meat being kept in a meat house near the lodge ready for transport to our local butcher.  The butcher has several options for hunters to select based on their individual desire. The butcher may cut/process/package and ensure animal is maintained in cold storage facility ready for shipment. Butchering fees will be the responsibility of each hunter.
