Moose Hunting: Moose are not native to Newfoundland but were introduced to Newfoundland and from there have grown tremendously since 1904. The Bull Moose rut or breeding season begins towards late September and continues until mid October. The Cow Moose have their young in late May or early June and they remain with the mother until just before she gives birth the following year. The Moose shed their Antlers during the winter and they begin to grow again in Early Spring until Late August when they have reached the full potential.
Our hunting area has one of the largest Moose Populations per square mile and one of the highest re-population rates than most other areas. Oursuccess rate is 80% to 95% with Bulls ranging from 30inches to 38inches, always a chance of taking one in the 40 inch to 50 inch range. While staying at Victoria Lodge you may be lucky to see aTrophy Size Moose in the early morning or late evening gazing within gunshot of our patio.
Black Bear Hunting: Black Bears are Native to Newfoundland and are among theLargest Black Bears in North Americawith spring weights exceeding 500lbs, one of the largest weighed in at 676lbs and would put this bear close to 800lbs in the fall. Bears have good eye sight and a very keen sense of smell along with excellent hearing. They feed mostly on plants and berries but also hunt for Caribou & Moose calves. These predators are responsible for up to 40% calf mortality rate in some areas and have been seen taking down adult caribou and are known to have taken down adult moose also.
