Remote, Fly-In Hunts in Newfoundland - Canada Moose, Caribou, Bear
At Harold's Pond and Sam's Pond, spot and stalk are the preferred methods to hunt a trophy moose. It is not uncommon to see four to six moose each day with several shooters in the mix. We currently hold an astounding 90% success rate on our Trophy Moose Hunts!
We have several Moose Hunting Packages to choose from, with combo Moose/Bear hunting options, too. Ask about group rates.
Because of our remote locations, we can provide excellent Trophy Caribou Hunts. Our best locations for Caribou include the remote areas of Steele Lake and Sam's Pond. Our Success Rate for Trophy Caribou is 98%!
Steele Lake, as well as Harold's Pond and Sam's Pond, provides good chances to stumble onto a Black Bear; especially at Sam's Pond. There is a high population of these trophy bruins weighing in excess of 500-600 lbs.
Tree stands will also be used for hunting bear. Even though it is much more difficult to keep a bear around the bait during the fall, the chances for success will run 30%-40%. This is due to the vast expanses of berries that bears feed on.
You accommodations will vary, depending on the type of hunt you want. Harold's Pond and Steele Lake lodges are approximately 800 square feet in size and very clean and comfortable. They are of log construction with three double occupancy private bedrooms; hot and cold running water with showers and indoor plumbing.

A full time cook is on staff at each location to provide home cooked meals and shore lunches during the day. The menu will consist of turkey, beef, duck, steak, fish, etc.
