Moose hunting in Canada. The rest of the world will blur into nothing as you walk the wilderness in stalking missions with your rifle at hand.
Canada has an expanse of nature unlike anything you’ve ever seen and offers a great variety of hunting and fishing trips. With big open space comes big trophy game. In Northern Canada, you’re able to target Dall sheep, mountain goat, and Alaska-Yukon moose on the colossal mountain scape of the Mackenzie Mountains. The rest of the world will blur into nothing as you walk the wilderness in stalking missions with your rifle at hand. Locations so remote, you lower from the sky in a thundering helicopter into valleys of bountiful wildlife. In Canada, be prepared to encounter rare and extraordinary game at any corner during your stalk, this includes the wolf, black bear, and bison.
There are splendid forest cottages all throughout, bordering lakes and lively forests, the perfect accommodation for a fruitful trip for hunters and anglers. Canada guarantees a once-in-a-lifetime wildlife experience, home to some of the most beautiful settings like the Banff National Park, your experience with the finest moose stalks and leading salmon fishing will make Canada a destination to repeat for any hunting or fishing trip.
Whether it is your first archery bull, or a regular, annual outing, moose hunting embeds memories from the field that will never leave you.
Hours, minutes go by staring at a brush line, calling a cow-call to somewhere deeper, farther beyond it.
It's the beginning of October and the mood in the big woods is bold and vivid. The brush line stomps. And stomps some more. Before you can see the whole body, a long stretch of pointy antler sticks out. Then the shoulder. Suddenly, smoothly presented before you like the Stanley Cup trophy, is a big bull moose with a rack well over 150cm, walking closer towards you.
Like love at first sight, it may take some seconds to assess the great size and rack of a whopping big bull, or cow for that matter. A moose is a moose; they almost seem to startle themselves with their massive size.
Shiras and amur moose are similar to the Alaskan Yukon, mountain and Canadian moose and are equally priceless hunts. Amur have the least amount of horn, with bulls sometimes not having any horn at all.
Weighing in over 1000 kilos, Alaskan Yukon moose is the largest moose subspecies. Whichever tag you get, witnessing a grunting, rack-scraping bull, or cow in the deep swampy depths of an old woods is well worth the wait to go moose hunting.
