Hunting

Moose

The reputation of the Fer à Cheval Outfitter (2010) regarding moose hunt goes beyond the limits of the Province of Quebec. Its exclusive 238 square kilometers offer a variety of habitats for moose, which greatly improves the level of hunting success.

In the last few years, the outfitter has set up a very strict management plan, which has allowed for an abundance of livestock

Many salines, hunting trails as well as viewpoints strategically disposed allow hunters to occupy a position of choice on the territory.

Our outfitter guides possess a deep knowledge of the moose’ habits and the territory itself. We offer European or American Plans for moose hunting and the existing management plan allows hunters access to areas that do not undergo a very high hunting pressure. Under these circumstances, it is not surprising that trophy deers are harvested each season.

The territory of the outfitter is located in Zone 14.

Historically, the territory of the outfitter has never had a strong hunting pressure for bear. Because of that, we found that the territory of the outfitting houses today bears of a very good size.

Hunters will be directed to baited sites regularly visited by bears. Some hunting sites often have several bears. The hunting sites are dispersed and maintained regularly, and several surveillance cameras can identify the behavioral habits of bears.

All hunters who have come to the outfitter in 2012 have seen many specimens of bears, and some trophy bears have also been harvested.

The site of the Fer à Cheval (2010) was specifically selected during the last 2 years as a destination of choice for producing and filming TV show (Bonne Chasse, broadcasted on RDS : see video section).

A service of refrigeration, butchering and preparation of fur is available at the Inn. As well, the outfitter has made arrangements with taxidermists (see Partners section), who specialize in artistic assembly of bears.

Small Game

Within the 238 square km of the outfitter, we find various woods exhibiting a variety of trees.

These targeted areas meet the basic needs of small game. Ruffed grouse and spruce grouse are usually bold in the territory, which facilitates the exercise of hunting.

Several networks of logging roads and trails are available for hunters. Hunters can stay under the American Plans.
