Canada Moose Hunts

Canada moose have a very wide range of habitat, from the mountain valleys of British Columbia, across central Canada, and all the way to maritime Newfoundland. Canada moose hunts offer a wide range of trophy quality and methods of hunting.

Canada moose are sometimes separated into two distinct types – the western Canada moose and the Eastern Canada moose. The western Canada moose is the second largest of the North American moose, only exceeded in size and antlers by the Alaska Yukon moose. Large bulls can weigh 1400 pounds. They are found in the Northwest Territories, British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and western Ontario. Trophy bulls can have spreads between 50-60+ inches with much larger specimens taken each year. The eastern Canada moose is slightly smaller than their western cousins and are found in eastern Ontario, Quebec, Newfoundland, and Maine. Trophy bulls can have spreads between 35-50+ inches, with larger specimens taken every year.

Choosing the type of Canada Moose Hunt

First, do you want to hunt western or eastern Canada moose? In general, the further west one goes, the larger the moose but hunt costs are higher. And do you want to hunt moose as a single species or combination hunt? In many areas moose can be hunted in combination with elk, mountain goat, caribou, and black bear for example. What type of weapon do you want to use – bow or firearm? Legacy Outdoors can tailor a hunt to suit almost anyone. We can offer fly-in hunts, lodge based hunts, horseback hunts, river float hunts, and spike camp hunts to name a few. So whatever your abilities are, after a discussion, we can find the perfect hunt for you. No matter what kind of moose hunt you’re looking for we got you covered.

Best places to hunt Canada Moose!

With the exception of Maine and a few other northeast US states, where tags are on a draw and difficult to obtain, all of the Canada moose hunts in Canada have tags readily available through our outfitters. For western Canada moose, British Columbia dominates the record books hands down! For eastern Canada moose, we recommend Newfoundland which has tags available and has been producing some nice bulls. Legacy Outdoors represents several of the best Canada moose outfitters in North America. Below you will find some info on the most popular locations to hunt Canada moose. If you don’t see a particular location you want to hunt Canada moose just give us a call! There are so many options, we can’t list them all.

When to hunt Canada Moose!

Canada moose hunts can take place as early as late August and as late as November, but the majority of moose hunts occur in September and October.  Late August has the moose still in velvet and getting ready for the rut.  As September progresses, the bulls really start rutting and calling is a very effective option from early/mid-September until well into October.  Later October hunts and November hunts usually have more predictable colder weather and possibly snow which makes moose easier to spot.  So, whatever your preference, we can find the right time frame for your schedule.

British Columbia Moose Hunts

British Columbia dominates the record books for western Canada moose.  Trophy bulls can average between 50-55 inches, with 60-inch bulls taken every year.  We offer several methods of moose hunting including horseback, fly-in, cabin accommodations, spike camp set-ups, etc.  British Columbia is an excellent place to do a combination hunt – elk, mountain caribou, mountain goat, black bear, stone sheep, and wolf can all be added.  A hunt in British Columbia will promise to be an adventure! 

Central Canada Moose Hunts

We offer hunts in central Canada on native lands.  Glassing forest fringe, agricultural, and river bottom areas is quite effective.  Not a super physical hunt, this is an excellent choice for those looking for nice accommodations and a great trophy. 

Newfoundland Moose Hunts

Newfoundland has a moose population estimated at 120,000 to 150,000 moose.  Hunts in Newfoundland arguably offer the best value moose hunt in North America.  Typical bulls in most areas will have spreads of 30-40 inches but our outfitters routinely produce bulls in the 35-45-inch range some even go in the 55-inch range.  Some camps are drive-in and some are fly-in.  Both produce great bulls. On foot, by boat, by Argo or UTV, in a lodge with all the comforts of home, or in nice spike camp accommodations, we have options to suit hunters of any physical abilities.  It is also very common to add black bear and woodland caribou to a Newfoundland hunt.
