Big River Camps operates newly built fly-in hunting lodges for Canadian Moose, Woodland Caribou and Black Bear. Located on Newfoundland's southern coast, you will find all the amenities of home while experiencing the hunt of a lifetime as you track and hunt some of Newfoundland's trophy big game animals. Since the area has not been hunted in the last while due to lodge upgrades, it has allowed us to observe many magnificent animals lingering in the wooded and open areas surrounding Middle Lake.

Our qualified and experienced hunting guides can help you experience the thrill of hunting Moose, Caribou, and Bear at one of our remote fly-in locations located within the spectacular and very unique province of Newfoundland, Canada. We operate our hunting lodges during the months of September and October. After an adventurous day hunting and exploring the countryside, return to the lodge to the warmth of a crackling fireplace, a home cooked meal prepared by our chef, and an evening of relaxation and conversation of the day's events.

For a Newfoundland Hunting trip like no other, contact us today and experience the thrill of Big Game Hunting in Newfoundland and Labrador.



An outstanding hunt! 5 STAR service and accommodation and exceptional numbers of mature trophy class Eastern Canadian Moose and healthy numbers of mature bull Caribou.
