Moose Hunting Information

The most popular big game animal, Buck Lake Adventures hunts is the Moose.  It is estimated that Newfoundland has approximately 120 000 moose. Moose can weigh up to 1200 pounds, however despite their size, they are able to move swiftly and gracefully along the fringes of marshes and nearly impenetrable forest.

The most successful time to hunt moose is during the annual mating season. This mating season is known as 'The Rut', it occurs during the last 10 days of September and the first 10 days of October. This is when bulls can be called by guides to within an easy rifle or bow range.

Once you have harvested your moose and we have it field dressed, it can then be taken to the local butcher. This butcher can prepare your moose meat, vacuum pack it and have it ready for transportation. There is also a local taxidermist which can mount your trophy, make a rug out of its hide, etc. Take notice that the butchers and taxidermists work is not included in the hunting packages.

Non-resident license quotas are strictly controlled, and may be acquired only through approved outfitters. Licenses are limited so interested persons should respond quickly.


Licenses for the Moose and other big game are issued on a first come first serve basis so its important to book early.
