MOOSE HUNTS

Chinchaga River Hunts offers some of the finest Moose hunts in North America.

The moose that we hunt have both Yukon or Alaska style racks, as well as some of the southern styles.   Our Moose are some of the largest bodied in all of Canada, with some weighing in excess of 1400 lbs.

We provide the ultimate experience in hunting these big game.

We have produced Boone & Crockett class moose with several of our trophy moose scoring very high in Alberta. During the past 12 years our success rate for moose has been consistent at 70%  – 80% with an opportunity rate of 90% – 95%.

Early season rut hunts are concentrated near lakes and creeks with calling being the preferred and the most exciting method of hunting big moose.
Methods of travel to our remote hunting areas are by all-terrain vehicles. Late season hunts in November are by snow machine or all-terrain vehicles.
Professional caping and skinning of your trophy moose is done from start to finish. Our field preparation is second to none. We take our meat into camp wrapped in shrouds free of any hair or debris. The meat is hung immediately even if we are working into the night and covered with game bags the next day after final inspection for cleanliness.  Some clients think we are a bit overboard but they always appreciate the effort.  Our experienced staff also looks after the arrangements for your moose meat from packaging to obtaining export permits.
The Chinchaga moose season starts middle to end of September and lasts until mid October, with the post rut hunting season being in November, please call for dates. We only book a maximum of 4 hunters per camp for a 7-day hunt. If you  prefer a longer hunt with your own guide we can provide this for you with your choice of a rifle or archery hunt.
Remember you will be hunting in a Northern Wilderness area of Alberta where all species of wildlife are abundant.

HUNTING CAMPS

Our hunting camps are located on the scenic banks of the Chinchaga River in Northwestern Alberta, Canada.

We have three camps: Main Camp, East Camp and Keg River Camp.

Our camps consist of cabins that are clean, heated, well lit, comfortable and most important, have shower facilities.

Kitchen cabins at all camp locations have great cooks. We take great pride in our home cooked meals and will do our best to accommodate any special dietary requirements due to medical or religious needs. Just ask when booking your hunt.  All of our camps are traveled to by all-terrain vehicles.
