Top Rated Big Game Hunting Guides of North America

All our lodges are located in northern Newfoundland for moose hunts. We now have 1 hunting camp in area 45 and 1 camp in area 02.  The camp in area 45 is called DJ's Pond.  The camp in area 02 is called Jamie's Pond.  We now operate 13 hunting lodges. Success rate is 90 - 95 % for moose and 98% for caribou. All our hunting camps are fly in. Our Caribou permits are in Area 69. Meat is pack boarded out at all of our camps.

We can accommodate people with some disabilities. We will do the best we can to make their hunt a success. Hunting is a challenge in most of our areas and good physical health is of benefit to you to hunt in most areas. The majority of our hunters go away happy and content.

Our base camp is located at Raft Pond, near Hawkes Bay. This is where you will be picked up and delivered to one of our hunting camps. While your waiting to be picked up by our aircraft, you may want to take in some of the beautiful scenery surrounding the pond.
