moose hunts in NB, CanadaMoose Hunts in NB, Canada

Moose hunts are done in late September while the bulls are in full rut. The temperature at this time of year varies between 30° – 40° F early mornings, 50° – 70° F mid-afternoons, and 40° – 50° F late evenings.

Moose Hunts in the early mornings and late evenings are usually the most effective hunting times, as calls seem to carry better at this time. All moose hunts will be done by tree stand or ground blinds.

The average bull has between a 40″ – 50″ spread. It is not uncommon to get a bull over 60″.

Our success rate over the past 10 years has been 90 – 100 %.

Keep in mind for fall hunts, that a full hunters orange hat in addition to 400 square inches of hunters orange on the chest front and back is required. All guns should be sighted in for 200 yards.

Non-residents may apply for the opportunity to hunt moose in New Brunswick. One hundred Moose Licenses are currently allocated annually to non-residents by random draw. For information, contact a Service New Brunswick centre, a Natural Resources office or a licensed outfitter or guide. Keyword: Natural Resources.
