Ontario Moose Hunting Information:

The "Canada Moose" defines big game hunting in North America. The season for bow and gun hunters starts in mid-September. Non-resident hunters must have a valid hunting license and be a registered guest at a tourist establishment. There are many ways to hunt Ontario Moose, calling, paddling up creeks, small rivers or along the lakeshore and stalking in the bush. Being patient, watching and waiting in feeding areas, edges of marsh meadows, 2-5 year old burn areas and forest cutovers can be very rewarding, especially if it's also a browsing or travel corridor. When moose begin to bed down, they criss - cross the wind and then hook back to watch their downwind trail.

A bull moose can weigh as much as 1,400 pounds with antlers close to 5 feet across. A cow can weigh in as much as 800 pounds and a calf can weigh more than 400 pounds. Moose can live to be 20 years old or more, but are in their prime between 6-9 years of age.

Hunters should chose calibers , such as .270,.308,.30-06 and .300 Winchester magnum. A bullet weight of at least 150 grains that can penetrate thick hide, bone and muscle. Recurve and compound bows must have a draw weight of 49 pounds or more with draw length 28" or less. Crossbow, draw weight of 119 pounds or more with a draw length of 12 " or more. Muzzleloaders can be used during any regular gun season. Calibers of .50 and .54 are most popular. Heavy bullet and as large of charge, as always, with safety and accuracy.

Remember, the killing is the easy part, it's the knowledge and skill that comes afterward to prepare, preserve and store the meat properly.
