Moose Hunting at Marten River Lodge

Moose hunting regulations in Ontario have changed significantly for 2016. Most notably, the start of rifle season has been pushed out one week and there is now only a two week calf season in many jurisdictions. Also, guaranteed group sizes have been eliminated in many areas.

For WMUs 40 & 41 specifically, these changes have restricted our ability to host moose hunters during the rifle season, as our camp closes for the winter the day after opening. However, we can welcome bow hunters during the bows only period.moose hunting in northern ontario lodge

Marten River Lodge sits on the boarder of zones 40 and 41 and as the lodge is not eligible for the moose hunting tags handed out by the Ministry of Natural Resources hunters must apply on their own and may apply for either district. 

The lodge is surrounded by Crown land with miles of old logging roads and acres of marshes to hunt in. Our moose population is on the increase and it’s not unusual to see moose while you’re fishing. 
We have housekeeping cottage rentals available and we can assist with retrieval of your Moose. Our cabins are completely equipped with linens, towels, soaps, dishes, pots, pans, utensils, microwave, stove, refrigerator, 3 or 4 piece bathrooms, drinkable hot & cold running water and propane heat - every convenience for a comfortable hunt.

With sufficient notice and subject to availability, we can arrange professional guiding services for a complete hunting experience.
