Newfoundland moose hunt this September?

We have an opening. We're leaving from the Reading Pa area. There are 3 of us.
The 4th guy got a new job and can't go now. Anyone interested in taking his spot?
We'll be in the Daniel's Harbor area. You can take a bear too if you desire.

Re: Newfoundland moose hunt this September?

The license is provided by the outfitter.
This is a week long hunt. Sept 8-16th.
Cost is $4100.
We will drive from PA to Nova Scotia, take the ferry to Newfoundland. Then our outfitter flies us to the remote area which has no hunting pressure. Camps have full time cooks,hot showers, generators, etc. the hunt is one on one, each hunt has his own guide. You do need a passport. You can use gun or bow. Moose was 95% last year. Caribou was 99%. I am only after moose. My buddies have tags for both. Anyone can shoot a bear.

TexterMountain, send me a PM I will offer my personal experience with Portland Creek and some suggestions if you are interested. Hopefully you don't have the same problems we dealt with.

Re: Newfoundland moose hunt this September?

I thank both kudu58 and GSPZeke for their very fair and honest advice and opinions of the outfitter I am booked with for September. However, both have said that the area we 'll be hunting is top notch. Also, now I am prepared to make the best of the trip and make this an unforgettable experience, I have never been one to depend on anyone other than myself in a wilderness experience. This wil be a challenge I am actually looking forward to. There are 3 of us going. We still need a fourth! Price is right. Transportaion is setup, Anybody have the time, money and courage to go?

Re: Newfoundland moose hunt this September?

I will vouch for the quality of hunting in this area. I have hunted specifically moose in Nfld 7 times and have harvested 6 there. The area where this outfitter operates is the best I've seen in any of my trips. I saw the most moose of any trip I've been on there and they were also the biggest. I saw moose every day. All 4 in my group shot bulls, including two over 40 inches. It is a fly in area so it is away from roads and is not overhunted. Good luck Texter.
