Guided Hunting Tours
The Woodland Caribou is a true native of Newfoundland and exists in populations of over 30,000 in several herds across the island. They are very large animals whose weight can vary between 350 to 500 pounds.
The areas in which the caribou migrate remains much the same from year to year; therefore, they are very easy to track. Woodland Caribou can be found in various provinces of Canada but can only be hunted in Newfoundland.
Eastern Canadian Moose
The Eastern Canadian Moose was introduced to the province of Newfoundland in Gander Bay in 1878 and Howley in 1904. The population has been thriving ever since; especially in areas such as Gros Morne National Park. Currently, there is no legal hunting in the park, therefore, due to the protection in the area of the Eastern Canadian Moose, the population has become exceedingly high. Our camp is set up bordering Gros Morne National Park and benefits from the overflow of Moose to the surrounding area.
Mature Eastern Canadian Moose range in weight from 600 to 1400 pounds. Moose can grow up to seven feet tall at the shoulders and can be 10 feet in length. Male moose have antlers that can be 45 inches or larger in width and are often considered a trophy.
North American Black Bear
Black bear hunting in Newfoundland is usually done in the Spring or in the Fall. The average range of weight for these animals varies from 250-300 pounds, but some as large as 600+ pounds have been recorded.
These hunts are done from tree stands over baits using either rifle, bow, or muzzle loader.
