Bowhunting Moose in Canada

There is a considerable difference in bowhunting moose in Canada from East to West. On the eastern end of Canada is the Province of Newfoundland. This island has the highest moose density in the world, boasting of around three moose per square mile. These hunts can be arranged as a single species hunt or done in combination with woodland caribou but a bowhunter wishing to take a 50" moose is looking at the wrong end of Canada if he is considering Newfoundland. Top end bulls will likely be in the low 40". The size of the moose in Quebec and Ontario are larger on average than in Newfoundland. Ontario specifically has a lot of P&Y entries and should not be overlooked; as there are many reasonably priced hunts there.

Out West (Alberta and British Columbia) you start to find a higher percentage of the larger bulls. BC probably is the best spot for big trophy Canada moose with bow and arrow (if you look a the P & Y record book entries). BC has good success rates for bowhunting, where 50"+ bulls are much more common than elsewhere.
