They hunt at Benabbey Lake, sw Newfoundland (section 11). If you google map it, it will come up. I did see 1 caribou, which really was a beautiful animal. And if I had a tag, I would of harvested it.
I did tag out on an 8 pt, 38Ē moose. I did see a number of moose in my 3 days of actually hunting. What I didnít know, was we were in a draw for tags. Most of us drew bull only, with only 1 guy having either sex tag. Iím pretty sure if you go, you will see moose. Just realize your not going to see a 1000 lb 45Ē spread moose (which I was told by the guides in camp). There are a few, but itís rare to get them.
The outfitter was horrible. Not to cry my tears about it, because I really did not enjoy much of the trip. I saw the owner twice during the week. For 10-15 mins, while he dropped off supplies.
The guides all had $50-80 binoculars, really cheap garbage. I have a $250-$300 pair, which you would think was top of the line stuff compared to their crap.
The guides were not interested in going out to hunt all day. They want to be at camp at 1-2 everyday. Iím the guy that will go out at zero dark 30, and return with the sun set. Thatís why Iím there, to hunt.
He had 1 small 14í boat, that all the guides used. You had to take turns getting dropped off. 1 hunter, 1 guide at a time. Why, because the boat had leaks. Always had to bail water out. The motor was hard to start.
The generator at camp would not stay on. The camp guy had to start 30-50 times a day..
All the employees complained about the owner, and how bad the equipment was, is lack of interest with the hunters, and 3 of the four said they would not be back next year.
The owner wanted us to hunt Sunday, which is not allowed by law. In the 2 weeks of hunters, only 3 tagged out.
My buddy got tore up with ant bites while sleeping in the lodge..
I bought a bear tag, and was expecting to at least see bears. They havenít taken a bear at camp since 2001. The put a bucket of syrup out to bait. Honestly... they should tell you this in advance. I wouldnít of bought a tag had I known this. That was a waste of $750.
The owner took 2 days to pick up my moose. I packed most of it out. My guide was 70 yrs old. They had no machine to help. The owner sold me boxes to ship my meat back. At camp he said, $7.00 a box. After I left, $10. On top of he took the meat to the processor, and never gave me a receipt. Iím very sure he pocketed some of my money.
Again, Iíd not recommend the outfitter. Best of luck if you go. I hope you have a better experience.
