What our Hunters had to say

"I recently finished a very enjoyable and very productive moose hunt with Newfoundland Big Game Adventures. Every aspect of the hunt was top notch. The lodge was comfortable and had all the conveniences of home. The food was excellent and the cook and hostess was great. The guides were congenial, worked extremely hard for their hunters and every hunter bagged their moose. Although the hunt was challenging physically, the terrain was beautiful and the work paid off for all of us. I would highly recommend Newfoundland Big Game Adventures to any hunter looking for a positive hunting experience. Regards, Bob Wadsworth "

"I had the Best Time Hunting with Maurice and we had a Lot of Laughs(Especially with the Spruce Grouse!!) Great Conversations and the Most Beautiful Nature I've Ever Seen with Beautiful Wildlife and Great Fresh Air! You Cooked Our Meals Wonderfully and it's the Best Home Cooked Meals I've had in Years?! You and Maurice have a Beautiful Family and Great Family Values to Support Everyone and Not to be Ruined by $$. I Hope I can come back Someday. Thanks,Bill "

"Daer Sharon, Mourice, Mitch, Now that I have recovered from the week of exertion, I may be able to express my gratitude for the wonderful hunting experience you provided. I did not not expect the hunt to be as physical as it was, my bad. Despite my inabilities to cope with the rigors of each day, Mitch more than compensated for my shortcomings. This was the best camp I have ever been to in my 12-15 previous hunts. the lodge was great and the food superb. I want to thank you all for making this a wonderful experiece, I'm talking the hunt up as a place not to be missed. If I can get my leg back into some type of shape I definately will be back for another moose hunt. Also, if you can set me up with a ground blind that you feel is safe I would like to try for a bear but I cannot get up in a tree. Once again thank you so much for a great hunt and I will try to sell your outfit to anyone whom may be interested. Thank you so much,Gary "

"Just want to let you know we got back safely and I have to tell you we had the most wonderful and memorable trip ever. You guys were the greatest. Once again Thank You Very Much. Lynn"

"Hospitality was great, hunting was excellent, had a great time. Larry Decker"


What To Bring On Your Hunt


Your hunt starts at Deer Lake, Newfoundland

Deer Lake has a beautiful airport for those who would like to fly. Air Canada is the most used airline by our hunters with connections in most major cities. If you arrive early or would like to stay longer we have arrangements with the Deer Lake Motel for reduced rates. (just mention NBGA)

Newfoundland is also served by Marine-Atlantic Auto Ferry for those who would like to drive. The Ferry travels from North Sydney, Nova Scotia to Port Aux Basques, Newfoundland. A drive from New York would take approximately 16 hours to North Sydney, 6 hours on the ferry, and then a three hour drive to Deer Lake. The Ferry has rooms so you can sleep during your crossing. Driving is your best bet if you and your hunting party would like to bring your meat back. Meat cutting, storage and shipping can be arranged in Deer Lake.

Newfoundland Big Game Adventures host only top quality guides. Hunts are 2 X 1 but can be 1 X 1 for $500 extra. The hunting season for Bear runs early June to early July. Moose, Caribou and Fall Bear runs mid September to early December. A pre-season of two weeks is held for bow hunting alone, however, you can bow hunt throughout the regular hunting season also.

For Taxidermy in the U.S. we use John Noon Taxidermy. Check out his web site and see all he has to offer. In Newfoundland we use local taxidermist, Rex Jennings Taxidermy contact 1-709-783-2180. He does great work and would be happy to give you a price.

MEAT CARE: For our meat processing we use Countryside Abattoir (Contact Boyd at 1-709-635-7040) they are a professional meat processing plant. If you get your animal early in the week your meat is cut, wraped, and frozen. If you are driving home you can cooler your meat. If you want to ship your meat back by reefer tractor trailer to the USA you can make the arrangments through Countryside Abbittoir and is generally cheaper than shipping through the airlines and also more convenient if you do not live close to a designated US FDA distribution point. Prices to expect for shipping are as follows: First Box (50lbs) - $160 (+tax), Each Additional Box - $90 (+tax),Antlers are free when accompanied by your meat, Antlers are $120(+tax) when shipped alone. Any questions about shipping, contact Michelle or Candace from Central NL Shipping at 1-709-651-4427.

Canadian Customs requires that all firearms transported into Canada must be declared and accompanied by Form CAFC 909 in triplicate. You can obtain forms and learn more about Canadian firearms law at Canada Firearms.

Any non-Canadian who possesses a criminal record may not be allowed into Canada. A Permit is required to be completed before traveling. Even a DUI conviction may prevent passage into Canada. For more information go to Canada Border Crossing Services.

To learn more about Newfoundland you can go to Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism.
