Horseshoe Creek Outfitters offer Guided Western Canadian Moose Hunting
This horse-sized animal is the largest member of the deer family with long, dark
brown hair, high, humped shoulders and long legs. A pendant of hair-covered
skin sometimes reaching 2 feet hangs under the throat. Each April the male
moose or bull grows a set of antlers reaching 120-150 cm which he loses in the
winter after rutting season.
The rut lasts from early September to late October and 8 months later 1-2 calves
are born. Moose are unpredictable and sometimes dangerous; although they generally
avoid human contact, cows with calves and rutting bulls have been known to
charge people, cars, horses, and locomotives.
Ray & Sharon Jackson have lived in the Peace River area of Northeastern British
Columbia for many years, and have been outfitting in the area since 1991.
They live as well as work in their hunting country year round, running their
own ranching operation in addition to outfitting. Ray has been guiding since 1978.
