About the Outfitter:

Welcome to the center of an island overloaded with Moose. Also, the only place in Canada that you can shoot The Prestigious Mountain Caribou, plus 20,000 black bears that grow old due to the lack of hunting pressure and old age.

Newfoundland is accessible by air and highway. For the air traveler, Air Canada serves Gander International Airport with connections to U.S. carriers at Halifax, Montreal, or Toronto. For those wishing to drive, Newfoundland is served by auto ferry from North Sydney, Nova Scotia with landings at Port aux Basques, Newfoundland. The ferries are operated by Marine Atlantic.

The Lodge is an owner-operated hunting lodge located in Central Newfoundland. The lodge is modern log construction and features 1st class accommodations with four bedrooms, bathroom with shower, living room, dining room and kitchen. Hot and cold running water, electric lights, mobile telephone service available for long distance calls. Bedding is provided all you must bring is your gun and personal gear. Hearty meals are prepared fresh daily by our staff cook. There is one guide assigned to every hunter on all hunts.

The Newfoundland people are extremely nice and provide a warm welcome to the hunters that land on this province every year to take advantage of the extremely high moose concentration population. There is no question that your guide will put you on your moose.

Our spike camp is located on a lake and is accessible by boat or ATV. The camp houses a maximum of two hunters at a time. This camp is mainly for moose and bear. Moose surveys conducted at this location during the winter showed 20 moose per square mile which is the highest moose density for anywhere in the world.

The spike camp allows you to forge out into areas that have minimal pressure and the moose seem to not be as spooky and average larger antlers. This is a good one for the hunter that has shot a moose but wants to shoot something bigger this time.

Most of the hunting is warm in 55-degree weather except in November you can see snow. With that said the ocean currents keep Newfoundland in a very enjoyable temperature span, although you might get some rain from time to time.

At the camp there are boats and motors for hunting around the lake, ATVs for retrieving game via the trails. The equipment provided and its working condition is extremely important and worth paying more to be certain it is in working order. Argo’s operate great but you must have a trained mechanic in camp to keep them running. The ATV style transportation is more dependable but depending on weather conditions they can be stopped where Argos go on and on. Beware of the budget outfitters that are just 1-man bands with old equipment that are more and more noticeable in Newfoundland. With those you get there and hunt 1 day, the 1 piece of equipment that he has breaks down and it takes 5 days to fly parts in and another 2 days to get it rush repaired. You have too much money spent into travel and the trip to have something like this happen to you. Yes trip insurance might cover it but I would much rather put my money into a dependable hunt than an insurance package. Then he is ready for his next client. We have multiple pieces of equipment kept in good shape, with extra parts in camp. In addition, at least 1 if not 2 are extremely good at making the repairs required to keep you hunting for your full hunt.

There is a meat house for hanging game which is air-conditioned to ensure meat quality during the warm days of September. Meat will be taken out as necessary and hung in a cooler until hunters are ready to head home. Local butchers are available to cut and wrap your meat. Shipping is provided at hunters cost to closest destination to hunter’s home address.

Trophy Moose

Newfoundland has been called the moose capital of North America with over 120,000 animals. Surveys conducted in Central Newfoundland, by the Department of Wildlife have proven it to be one of the highest densities in the province.
Trophy Caribou 
The island of Newfoundland boasts of some 70,000-woodland caribou. We hunt the Middle Ridge herd. This herd has about 22,000 animals and are the largest in body size and antlers. A limited number of caribou licenses are allotted for each season.

Woodland Caribou are a smaller subspecies then the Barren ground Caribou which in much more common in Canada, but not in Newfoundland. If you are working on a Caribou Grand Slam, this is the best place if not the only place to get the mountain subspecies. If you just want to shoot a caribou, there are hunts at half the price in Canada and Alaska with much bigger caribou to select from.

Black Bear 
Newfoundland harbors some of the largest black bears in North America. Bears in excess of 400 pounds are quite common but larger have been taken. With a population of about 10,000 animals and low hunting pressure, the chances of getting a bear are excellent. Most of our bear hunting is done from baited stands

Success Rate:

Success rates in our area have been 95% for years. Trophy potential is very good. Spreads of 45 inches and better show up every season.
