Many of our guides have spent years honing their skills in the wilderness and have a passion for sharing their expertise with our guests.

    Moose and Black Bear.
  • How large is your hunting area?
    About 50 square miles.
  • Is there any fishing to be done after I tag out and get my animal early?
    Unfortunately the fishing season closes prior to the start of the hunting season. It closes in most of Newfoundland on Sept 7.
  • Is there a weight restriction for the fly-in?
    Yes, it is 50 lbs plus your gun.
  • Are non-hunting guests/observers welcome?
    Absolutely! Hideaway Lodge Hunting and Fishing Limited welcomes non-hunting guests and observers. While our primary focus is on providing exceptional hunting experiences, we understand that not everyone in your group may be interested in participating in the hunt. Non-hunting guests and observers are more than welcome to accompany hunters and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and amenities offered at our lodge. Whether they prefer to relax by the cozy fireplace, explore the picturesque landscapes, or simply soak in the tranquility of the wilderness, there's something for everyone to enjoy at Hideaway Lodge.
  • Are your hunts 2×1 or 1×1?
    Our hunting experiences are tailored to meet the preferences and needs of our guests. At our remote spike camp, hunts are exclusively offered as 1x1, providing a personalized and focused experience with one guide per hunter. However, at our main lodge, the hunting arrangements can vary depending on the size of the group. For smaller groups, hunts can also be arranged as 1x1 for a more intimate experience. Alternatively, for larger groups, hunts may be organized as 2x1, where two hunters are accompanied by one guide, until the first moose is taken. We will then alter guides to accommodate 1x1. We strive to accommodate the preferences of our guests and ensure that every hunting expedition with us is enjoyable, safe, and tailored to individual requirements."
  • Is there a deposit required to book a hunt?
    Yes, at Hideaway Lodge Hunting and Fishing Limited, we do require a deposit to secure your booking for a hunt. This deposit helps us ensure availability and make necessary arrangements for your expedition. To secure your reservation we require a 25% deposit. Three months before your hunt we require an additional 25%. The remaining 50% is due upon arrival.
  • Are deposits refundable?
    Deposits are non-refundable. However, they may be transferred to the following year, subject to availability and at a date determined by Hideaway Lodge Hunting and Fishing Limited. This transfer option allows guests to reschedule their hunting expedition to a suitable time within the next year, ensuring flexibility while maintaining the reservation.
