MOOSE

WHAT TO EXPECT

The Experience

Hunting the “big man” of the forest is a treat for your senses.  The Peace country has a very healthy moose population.  You’ll be in wildlife management area 544, and our hunts take place in the remote backcountry in logged cutovers – near lakes, natural salt licks, cut-lines and beaver dams. Moose prefer these areas for the solitude, the food, and the abundance of water. We use pickups or quads to transport you into prime moose hunting areas. Hunting may also include sitting stands and calling – with more emphasis on covering some ground and locating bulls within rifle range.

Our moose hunting season runs from November 1st through November 30th, when they have finished rutting and are concentrated in feeding areas. Leaves are gone and moose are easy to spot in their wintering grounds. Our hunts offer opportunities, with snow allowing for tracking into the hot spots. This late-season moose hunt is for the hardy hunter looking for a nice bull.

Our Lodge is located in McLennan, Alberta on Kimiwan Lake – just a few miles away from our hunting area. With a population of approximately 900, it’s a welcoming town with all the basic amenities. We’re also known as the Bird Capital of Canada.
