HuntingThe "Canada Moose" defines big game hunting in North America. The season for bow
and gun hunters starts in mid-September. Non-resident hunters must have a valid hunting
license and be a registered guest at a tourist establishment. There aremany ways to hunt
Ontario Moose, calling,paddling up creeks, small rivers or along the lakeshore and stalking
in the bush. Being patient, watching and waiting in feeding areas, edges of marsh meadows,
2-5 year old burn areas and forest cutovers can be very rewarding, especially if it's also a
browsing or travel corridor. When moose begin to bed down, they criss - cross the wind and
then hook back to watch their downwind trail.There are variables that can effect any moose
hunt ,such as; bears, wolves, other hunters and of course the weather. Moose are solitary
animals by nature, so moose sightings are infrequent in comparison to animal sightings on
many other types of hunts, such as deer hunts. We'll do our best to make sure that you have
an enjoyable hunting experience, but we can't guarantee success for every hunter. New moose
hunters should be prepared to accept such variables as this is all part of moose hunting.
A bull moose can weigh as much as 1'400 pounds with antlers close to 5 feet across.
A cow can weigh in as much as 800 pounds and a calf can weigh more than 400 pounds.
Moose can live to be 20 years old or more, but are in their prime between 6-9 years of age.
Hunters should chose calibers , such as .270,.308,.30-06 and .300 Winchester magnum. A
bullet weight of at least 150 grains that can penetrate thick hide, bone and muscle. Recurve
and compound bows must have a draw weight of 49 pounds or more with draw length 28"
or less.Crossbow, draw weight of 119 pounds or more with a draw length of 12 "or more.
Muzzleloaders can be used during any regular gun season. Calibers of .50 and .54 are most
popular. Heavy bullet and as large of charge, as always, with safety and accuracy. Remember,
the killing is the easy part, it's the knowledge and skill that comes afterward to prepare,
preserve and store the meat properly.
Grouse HuntingGrouse hunting in the fall is an added bonus for fall fishermen and moose hunters.
There's nothing better than a surf and turf evening meal. We have 3 varieties of grouse, Ruffed,
Spruce and Sharp tail. A small gauge shotgun, such as
a .410 or 28 gauge are a good choice. As the sun
begins to warm the morning air, look for birds sitting
on fallen trees or limbs. Bush roads are a good area
to walk and often times birds can be seen along
gravel pathces or in their dust bowls.
