Come and experience

Canadian Moose Hunts


Come, enjoy the thrill of calling in a bull moose, the quiet of a remote wilderness, the pleasure of good food and new friends. It’s more than just a hunt, it’s a moose experience.

Overview

At Crystal Lake Resort, we are passionate about calling moose, and we want to share that passion with you. Every experience calling in a bull is unique, and no matter how hundreds of moose we’ve called in, we get excited about it every time.

Calling in moose is our specialty. Crystal Lakes is a remote wilderness covered by dense forests with dozens of lakes, swamps, and meadows. Our network of hiking and ATV trails cover hundreds of miles of prime moose habitat. All hunt dates are exclusively done in the rut so your guide can call your bull out of the safety of the timber and into close range - sometime very very close!

We’ve been moose hunting the Crystal Lakes for more than 40 years. We know moose and we know our territory, and that kind of experience is irreplaceable - it’s why our success rates are between 70-90%. Canadian Moose will reach upwards of 56” wide, with an average bull around 40”.

Join us, and let us make your hunt a moose experience you will never forget.

Moose Stories

Moose Hunting with Rocks
By Dan Brooks

Over many years of guiding, I’ve seen and heard some strange things happen.  When one of my guides called in a bull for Tanya by throwing rocks though -  well that’s when I thought I’d heard it all.  Here’s how it happened, or at least this is the story they told me!

Muddy Moose Melee!
By Dan Brooks

Moose are by their nature a solitary anti-social species.  They don’t run in herds like elk and deer, and they rarely tolerate the presence of other moose except during the rut or in winter when feeding grounds are limited.  For this reason, it’s rare to see more than one or two moose in a square mile.  So, when four cows started a muddy moose melee on Bennet Lake, it was a hunt to remember.

The Patient Hunter
By Dan Brooks

I’ve guided many moose hunters who were very patient, and some who were anything but patient, and perhaps even a few who needed to be patients of another kind - but I have yet to convince a hunter that a straitjacket actually helps you sit still on stand.  (Do they make straitjackets in camo?) As a general rule, I’ve noticed that a hunter’s patience is directly proportional to his age.  On a scale of 1 to 100, 1 being “can’t sit still infant spasms” and 100 being “dead, won’t move without electricity applied”, you can pretty much tell how patient a hunter will be by how old he is.
