TOA6 – Moose Hunting in British Columbia, Canada with Total Outdoor Adventures
British Columbia Moose Hunts
Our Canadian moose hunt takes place in north central British Columbia, 100 miles north of Prince George, B.C.
Upon your arrival at the main camp, you will be situated in one of our hunter cabins and introduced to your guide. The following day is the 1st day of a seven day hunt. Depending on the weather and what the moose have been doing will dictate how you and your guide will be setting out in search of a big bull. We utilize pickups, 4wd atv’s, argos and jet boats to access prime moose hunting locations. In addition, we have several outpost camps throughout our 3,000 square mile territory that you and your guide may decide to hunt out of.
The prime moose hunting takes place during the rut, which generally occurs during mid September and will carry on up until mid October. We focus on hunting old logging blocks, swampy meadows, timbered ridges and river systems looking for moose. Cow and/or bull calls work the best to locate and ideally lure in a big bull within shooting range. Shot distances are usually within 300 yards, and if a bull is in prime rut don’t be surprised if the shot is under 100 yards. A 30 caliber or bigger rifle is recommended for taking down these monsters. Our hunters have experienced 80% kill success in the past 3 years with the average size being between mid 40 to mid 50’s.

Hunters are placed in camps depending on their group size, physical condition and preference. Upon arrival to the main camp you will be situated in one of our hunter cabins and introduced to your guide. The following day is the 1st day of a 7 day hunt. Depending on the weather and what the moose have been doing will dictate how you and your guide will be setting out in search of a big bull.

Hunts are conducted with experienced guides on a 1×1 or 2×1 basis.
