Small Game

Anything but small.

If small game hunting is more your style, or you wish to add another experience to your big game hunting trip, welcome to the mecca of small game. Species hunted in Newfoundland and Labrador include coyote, wolf, snowshoe hare, Arctic hare (hunted in Labrador only), willow ptarmigan, rock ptarmigan, ruffed grouse, and spruce grouse. Migratory game birds include ducks, geese, and snipe.

Non-resident small game licences are available through regular vendor outlets including convenience and sporting goods stores, and at Government Services Centres. Migratory game bird permits are available through Canada Post Offices.

Small Game Outfitters

Though non-resident small game hunters are not required to, the key to a successful and rewarding hunt is using a local outfitter. Outfitters act as your main point of contact before and during your trip, so be prepared to make long-lasting memories – and friends.

Our outfitters have a team of friendly, down-to-earth guides who are the difference between a good experience and a great one. After all, they know this place like the backs of their hands. And they're bound to share a few stories over a drink and a hearty meal back at the lodge.
