Hunting Camps in Canada

Due to the vast tracts of unpopulated wilderness there are numerous hunting camps in Canada that will enhance your experience. Many Canadian hunting camps offer guide services to help you track down that trophy buck. In cooperation with Federal and Provincial governments, reputable Canadian hunting outfitters follow conservation programs that ensure a healthy population of wildlife.

Popularity of Hunting in Canada

The popularity of recreational hunting in Canada has been dwindling over the years as more and more people are adapting to city life. In 1991, a survey was conducted that showed that there were approximately 1.5 million Canadian hunters. For those who enjoy migratory birds hunting in Canada, permits have dropped from 500,000 in the mid 1980's to less than 260,000 in 1994.

While 75 % of Canadians enjoyed other wildlife activities such hiking, bird-watching, and camping in Canada, only 16 % of the population participated in hunting. Canadian hunting camps are "luring" international hunters with promises of bagging trophy game and aren't disappointing them. Conservation programs and miles of untamed wilderness are producing an abundance of trophy game animals.

Canadian Hunting Supplies

No matter where you are hunting in Canada you'll likely be in "deep" wilderness and a long way from populated areas so be sure to bring sufficient hunting supplies. If you are hiring a guide service from one of the Canadian hunting lodges, you can obtain a list of recommended supplies.
  • ATV's are beneficial for moose hunting in Canada. ATV rentals are available in most locations. If you bring your own don't forget your proof of insurance.
  • Safety harnesses for tree stands
  • GPS, compass, and map of the area
  • If you're planning on a trip to the Canadian Rockies for bear, mountain goat, or elk hunting in Canada, a satellite phone can be an asset. Again, if you have hired a guide from one of the many Canadian hunting resorts this may not be necessary.
  • Hunter orange vest and hat. In some provinces such as Ontario, only solid orange vests are legal...no camouflage orange or mesh vests are allowed.
  • Scent shield or eliminator
  • Rain gear...hip boots for moose hunting are recommended
  • Insect repellant
