For those that have been there, what are your thoughts on archery hunting moose with the outfitters you went with? Did you see many within 60 yards? Any archery hunters in camp and were they successful? I would imagine late September, early October would be the best as the moose would be more receptive to calling.
Newfoundland is on my bucket list for archery moose.
That is my concern as well. I am sure most would take a archery hunter but I want to go with an outfitter than really enjoys and understands the dynamics of how archery changes the typical game and caters to the specific challenges.I have been down that road with our outfitter, but really its the guides. if you are wanting to archery hunt I would make sure you book with an outfitter that caters to them. my guide wasn't real happy about my flintlock the last time when I couldn't (wouldn't) take a long shot. we do however have that cleared up for this next time:wink2:
yes, and from reading the regulations, that would be archery, not crossbow. from what I saw, crossbows are not legal.
I always enjoy my time in Newfoundland. I never met anyone there that I didn’t like. Hunting moose, caribou and bear was the reason for my travels there, but only a part of my Newfoundland experiences. I made many friends on the Rock, some have even travelled here to visit and attend a Penguin game.Hard to believe my Mom is from NF and I have relatives that worked for the forest service and I've never been there or hunted there. Mom has gone back often with my sister. I should get off my butt.
