I am new to the north american hunting club and was hoping this might be a place to get some tips on guides to use in canada for moose hunts.
My son is 12 yrs. old and i am planning a trip in three years when he is 15 for moose hunting in canada, i have started looking at different guides but would appreciate some first hand thoughts if anyone has been on such a trip. I reside in Michigan so i am looking for guides in the eastern half of canada so it will be a drivable trip within a couple days. thank you in advance.December 18, 2013 at 1:17 pm #10469
I’d look at Newfoundland if taking a youngster on a moose hunt.
High probability of success helps to keep a young person’s interest up. Heck, I’m going on my first moose hunt ever in 2015 and me and my hunting partner are going to Newfoundland too. We ain’t youngsters but decided that for the first time we wanted high odds of success. We went with Efford’s as our Outfitter through Cabela’s. You’ll have to take a ferry to Newfoundland if you’re driving. Due to our location we found Alaska to cost more and flying to either location to be cheaper overall.
Even kids that like hunting can have a hard time staying focused if the hunting is too hard or the odds of success is low. Heck, even us adults struggle with this at times. Since you have to use a Guide in Canada why not put yourself in a location where you can see more moose and pick and choose? Good luck to you and your son.

I agree with AZ Vince. Newfy would be a great choice, higer moose concentrations and more affordable. You won’t kill a 50-60 incher but the abillity to share this expierence with your son should be awesome. If getting the meat home is important to you make sure you check into the possibilities available whether you drive or fly. Myself and a friend were lucky to do a self guided hunt for moose in alaska several years ago and that was a great hunt. Floated a river for 64 miles and took two bulls on the first day measuring 63 and 55 inches. A hunt that cost less then $3,500.00 at the time, but we didn’t get all the meat home because of the cost. However we did donate a lot of the meat to a local church in a small indian village and they appreciated it very much. I’ve been looking at doing another moose hunt also and was very surprised on the costs, even in Canada. In Wisconsin they have an All Canada show that I found had a lot of outfitters that provided moose hunting. Make sure you check references, successfull and unsucessfull. Good Luck
