Guided Moose Hunting from Caribou Lake, Indian Pond & Little Lake, NL
Week Long Guided Hunts in Little Grand Lake, NL
Sou’wester Outfitting offers week long guided moose hunting from three camps located at Caribou Lake, Indian Pond and Little Lake. All hunts take place in either the Little Grand Lake Wilderness Reserve or the Little Grand Lake Ecological Reserve where there are no other hunters in the field other than those at camp. Why is this possible you might ask? Both the Ecological Reserve and Wilderness Reserve are off limits to any development and structures but our lodges were there before the reserves were designated and as a result were permitted to remain. The reserves are virtual paradises situated in the middle of Newfoundland’s wilderness and along with spectacular scenery and terrain, the area has the highest Moose, Woodland Caribou and Black Bear densities on the island. Hunting trips are available for both Non-residents and residents of Newfoundland.
About our Moose Hunting Trips
All of our moose hunts are one-on-one guided and fly-in-only and conducted using the spot and stalk method. During the rut, our expert guides can call moose within range. Small boats are used to cross the larger bodies of water and allows one to cover the area in close vicinity to the lodges. Our lodges provide the hunter with the Comfort and convenience of modern lodging and the magnificence of remote Newfoundland.
Except requested otherwise, our typical moose hunting trips are one week and runs from Sunday to Sunday. Hunters are picked up Sunday morning and then taken to Deer Lake Airport and flown by helicopter to our remote hunting camps. The typical hunting day starts with a wake-up call before daylight. After a generous breakfast a lunch is prepared by our cook and then at the break of dawn, the guide and hunter start their day. The land at all three sites has open and wooded areas with lakes, valleys, knolls and mountains. This is the definitive setting to call or stalk moose. Once in the field, the guide chooses a vantage point where it is likely to glass a large area. When the big game is sighted, the choice is chosen whether to stalk or call the animal. Our dedicated guides go beyond the call of duty to ensure success. Most hunters are fortunate to take or have the chance to harvest their moose early in the week. Sou’wester Outfitting’s guides are passionate and committed for the entire hunt and are on site for the seven days.
About Newfoundland Moose
Moose, also known as Alces alces is the largest member of the deer family. Moose were introduced to the province of Newfoundland at the turn of the last century and since of the excellent forage, they have increased their numbers amongst 120,000 and 150,000 animals. A large bull moose can be an imposing and challenging prey when they stand higher than a large saddle horse with massive antlers. A mature bull at times can weigh up to 1,500 lbs. The mating period for moose, which is referred to as “the rut”, typically runs from mid-September to early November. Newfoundland moose are classified as “Eastern Canadian” by “Boone and Crockett”, “Pope and Young”, and “Safari Club International”. Bow, muzzleloader and rifle hunters are welcome. Sou’wester Outfitting’s annual success rate for non-resident rifle hunters is running close to or over 90%. It is not unusual for a 100% success rate with the majority being trophy animals.
