Newfoundland ‘Grand Slam’

Eastern Canadian Moose

Moose hunting in Newfoundland and Labrador is currently the best value moose hunting in the world. The province has the world’s densest moose population: 2-3 animals per square mile. A mature bull can weight up to 1,200 pounds with 40-50 inch trophies. The average expected trophy size is about 40 inches spread, with 12-22 points, but every season a few lucky hunters come across some 50 or 50+ inch “monster” bulls.

Rifle hunters’ success rate is 85%. Bow and arrow hunts and muzzleloader hunts are also welcomed.

The rifle moose hunt starts on September 15th, and bowhunting usually starts 2 weeks earlier. The moose hunt can be combined with woodland caribou and stumble-upon bear.

Woodland Caribou

The island of Newfoundland is the only place on earth where non-resident hunters can hunt woodland caribou. Some great herds of caribou live in Central and Southwest Newfoundland, migrating here for better food sources during the year. There are also some scattered, smaller herds in other areas, usually with slightly smaller trophies. This is a very limited opportunity, with high success rates. Non-resident hunters for woodland caribou have experienced more than a 90% success rate, with mature bulls weighing anywhere from 350 to 500 pounds.

Because the numbers of the available licenses are constantly dropping, we recommend you book your caribou hunt one or two years in advance.

Black Bear

Black bears are big here – some top a whopping 650 pounds. There are two black bear seasons in Newfoundland – one in the spring (mid-June to mid-July) and one in the fall (September – November) with rifle or bow. The fall hunt takes place during moose and caribou hunting, offering good combinations. This hunt is taken on mostly open barren blueberry fields. The spring bear hunt is on bait, with high success rates. Some of our outfitters offer a baited fall bear hunt as well. You can take two black bears (either sex) per licence. This hunt can be combined with salmon or trout fishing, whale and bird watching, eco-tours, and sightseeing of destination cities (such St. John’s, Gander, and Bonavista) or other historical, cultural, and culinary events.

Small Game

While hunting for big game here, you can come across coyote, wolf, snowshoe hare, willow ptarmigan, rock ptarmigan, ruffed grouse, and spruce grouse. Migratory game birds include ducks, geese, and snipe.

FAQ

How To Get Here?

Travelling to Newfoundland is easier than many realize. Flying time to St. John’s from Toronto is about 3.5 hours, and it’s just about 5 hours from London. If you plan to drive, a ferry from Nova Scotia is also a popular option.

How's the Weather?

Newfoundland weather is famously unpredictable, but also relatively mild. The average summer temperature is 16ºC (61ºF), while in the winter the average is 0ºC (32º F). And of course you can expect clean, fresh sea air all year long.

How Many Moose Are On The Island?

There’s a reason for our high success rates. There are approximately 120,000 Eastern Canadian moose on the island of Newfoundland.

How Many Black Bears?

There are about 10,000 black bears on the island, some topping a whopping 650 pounds. Our black bears tend to be bigger due to genetic predisposition and low hunting pressures.
