Moose Hunting in Ontario

(We have one archery Bull Moose tag still available for 2013)

There is a bountiful population of moose in the area surrounding Paquette's Camp as we are located just outside the Chapleau Crown Game Preserve, the largest game preserve in the world. The many clear-cuts, lakes are rivers in the area also contribute to the large moose population. This great hunting region is accessible by ATV, boat, car or truck via backcountry bush roads and ATV trails.

Our Moose hunt takes place in WMU 32 and WMU 35. Both areas are open to rifle hunters. WMU 32 is open to bow hunters. At present, we receive one adult bull tag and virtually unlimited calf tags. In the last three years, we have enjoyed a 100% success rate with our adult bull tags and 20% with calf tags. If our bull tag is spoken for, residents and non-residents can still purchase a calf tag and have an exciting wilderness hunting trip.

After you have harvested your moose, we will assist you with retrieval and field-dressing . We have a facility where the meat can be properly hung.
