For the moose-hunting adventure of a lifetime, head into the wilds with a seasoned guide
Watching the sun crest the horizon, followed by a day of hiking to high points to glass and call. Immersing yourself in the sights, sounds and scents of the boreal forest that make up so much of this incredible country. The thrill when you first hear the grunts of an approaching bull. Many of us have been feeling a sense of post-pandemic wanderlust, with these unusual times reminding us to enjoy life now, and a moose hunt can offer just the solution.
Better yet, make that a guided moose hunt—especially if you want to venture to a part of Canada you’ve never experienced before. Why? For starters, it’s mandatory in many provinces and territories for non-resident hunters to be accompanied by a licensed guide. Hiring a local professional outfitter will also maximize your days afield, boost your odds of success and help with the heavy lifting once your moose is down.
More importantly, a guided moose hunt can be the adventure of a lifetime, offering many cherished memories, new friendships and enough meat to last a year. It can also be a significant investment, however, so selecting just the right outfitter is key to avoiding disappointment. Here are six pointers to help guarantee the bucket-list hunt of your dreams.
