What does a typical day hunting look like?

A typical day hunting with us starts early. We will have breakfast and then set out, with our packed lunch, for a day of hunting. This usually lasts all day but we can tailor this to any length of time the client desires. Some people may not want to (or be able to) hunt from Dawn to Dusk— just let us know your preferences and we will accommodate your needs. Once the hunting is over for the day, we return to our relaxing lodge for a delicious home cooked meal and unwind by the fire until bedtime.

What should I bring with me?

Suggested Items to Bring:

  • Hunting equipment, firearms, and ammunition (It is recommended that the rifles be high-powered with a scope, sighted for 150 to 200 yards)
  • A warm sleeping bag
  • Some light clothing as well as warm clothing
  • Durable rain gear
  • Waterproof boots
  • Binoculars
  • Small backpack for daily use
  • A camera 
  • Any medications you require 

*Note: Weight allowable is approximately 60 pounds per person due to fly-in site. Due to limited space when flying, we urge all hunters to use soft gun cases for transporting their guns.

Are meat processing and shipping costs included in the price?

The listed price does include transportation of the meat and trophy to the butcher. However, the price does not include the cost of all processing and shipping after processing. For details regarding the shipping of meat and/or your trophy, please contact Michelle Toms, Central NL Shipping, at 709 651 4427.

Will I have difficulty shipping wild game meat across the U.S border?

Hunter harvested game from Canada may be allowed entry when the importer is the hunter and presents to the Customs and Border Protection officer evidence such as a hunting license that the product is hunter harvested wild game.

I don't want to hunt but I want to join another hunter on the trip?

We offer a fee for a person who would like to spend a week at base camp with another hunter. This is a person who doesn’t want to hunt but would like to experience the scenery, hospitality and a week in the life of a hunter. Please contact us for more details, including cost.

I would like to come and hunt but I have some trouble getting around. Do you offer any solutions for to make mobility easier for me?

Yes, we can accommodate a hunter with limited mobility. Many hunters are unable to walk a long distances. In order to make the hunt as accommodating as possible, we have a wide range of vehicles for transportation (for example: snowmobiles and other all-terrain vehicles). Please contact us if you have any questions, we are more than happy to help.
