No Canadian bashing.     

 

Newfoundland seems to be the place to go for Moose.

I'm looking for a hunting partner to share the drive.

Sept 2019.

It's a 2 1/2 day drive, plus an overnight ferry.

 

Moose are big, and it's a big money trip.    About $5k for the guide.   Plus all the other assorted stuff.

 

Looking for someone to share the transportation, and expenses.

 

Lake Douglas is the outfitter.

 

It's a once in a life time trip for me..... and I'm doing it before i get any older.

I hunted Anticosti Island, two guys at the lodge went solo on the trip. One guy was from California the other from The UP of Michigan. They tried to get a hunting buddy for the trip to cut the cost traveling the road. Sounds like a cool hunting trip. I hunted in September, Moose are huge animals.

Make sure you think out the taxidermy and agriculture stuff ahead of time. All the import paperwork etc. I like Jonas Brothers out of CO now. They used to be in Yonkers and did most of the Museum of Natural History back in the day. They have changed hands but still are top notch. Good hunting....

If I fiy in, I'll find a taxi up there.    If I drive in, I'll use a local taxi to avoid the shipping home.

Just be prepared for people not speaking English, the French Canadian will yank ur chain. The one guy who was solo from the UP of Michigan was hysterical. He was expecting to get his full exchange using USD paying for his meal in the Coffee shop. The waitress said to him 20% gratuity charge. He felt like he was hustled out of his money.

The solution to that is take Canadian currency, and use your CC whenever possible.

I have heard of nasty Canadian's... but never experienced it personally.    Most of them want tourist money... and treat tourist with respect.

The Maritimes has excellent hunting opportunities. It's a good value and you shouldn't experience a problem with the locals as they depend on tourist coming to hunt.
