I've been looking at a Canadian moose hunt for a long time. I considered Newfoundland, but I can't seem to find a moose hunt there for under $4000. The moose hunts in Quebec (unguided) start at about $500 plus the cost of the license. Has anyone here gone that route? Any recommendations; or good or bad experiences?
I'm living in québec and i can show you information about hunting trip in QC. First of all yes you can have hunting trip for under $4000. You have just to show me what you want have in your trip ( hunting guide or no, number of person, if pet is allowed etc...I will try to have a web site with more explication to you
each year my father go in hunting trip in gaspésie ''QC'' and it not cost 4000$ just 250 at 2000$ by person depending what you want have in your trip. For more explication: Said to me what you want have as information
I doubt that Canada is losing very many dollers due to their gun policies. I have been hunting up there a couple of times and as long as you follow the procedures and have your paper work filled out in advance there are no problems.
We have found out that it is nice to stop at the US side and check with the customs agents there as before you go into Canada and let them know that you are taking rifles or shotguns into Canada and follow procedure to get them back into the states.
Now if you want problems you should try and take a rifle into Mexico. You have to have it shiped to a military post and then pick it up there for your personal use. Then return it to them for shipment back to the states. It is a lot easier if you go down there to just rent a rifle or shotgun or borrow one from your outfitter.
From the books that I have read, there is a lot of importance in knowing every nook and cranny of your hunting territory as well as the animal that you are hunting. So scouting as much as possible, just walking the land, will give you a good idea of what's around the corner or what's on the other side of a hill. Which can be very beneficial.
