Advice for New Moose Hunters

Saskatchewan is one of the best places in North America to go moose hunting. At Lawrence Bay Lodge, we can proudly say that in the past 5 years, we have had a 75% opportunity for hunters at a Bull Moose.

If you’re a new moose hunter, here’s some advice that will help you bag a moose:

Know the area

It’s unlikely that moose will appear in a perfectly clear cut. Rather, they’ll be looking for cover, so you need to know where they’ll be. Study a topographic map to familiarize yourself with the area, and once you arrive, put on your hiking boots to do some scouting. Need help? Our knowledgeable guides can tell you all about our terrain.

Prep your rifle

We recommend bringing a rifle that’s familiar to you. Before your trip, shoot and sight in your firearm so it’s ready to go when you are.

Stay downwind and quiet

Moose have an excellent sense of smell as well as sharp hearing. Stay downwind at all times and make as little noise as possible.

Be positive

Moose hunting is challenging, and it can take some time to get the hang of it. Don’t get down on yourself, though. Stay positive and confident that you will bag that moose!
