    Appears to be Zone 13.
    Leave my rifle, my fishing pole, my traps, and leave me be.

    Know nothing about Quebec moose hunting but I hope you have a great hunt.
    I've already told you more than I know.

    My grandpa used to moose hunt in QC. They shot a couple big ones.

    If you don't mind me asking, what do you project your total costs to be? $750 Is very reasonable for lodging and access.
    Born to hunt, forced to work.

    Hard to say off hand. The 750 is US currency. Roughly 500 CA for a license. 11 drive from Burlington will suck down some diesel. Depending upon if 2 more guys come, groceries for 2 for a week, maybe 400 between the two of us? The outfitter recommended we stop a little over halfway for the night; that way, we get checked in around 11am the following morning and start hunting...all told, guessing 2k. May/may not get anything taken processed and frozen up there, depending upon date of kill. Maybe 2500...

    Very cool- you'll have a great adventure.

    Love to hear if there is any deer sign up that way after you get back.

    How is their winter going so far this year?

    Winter here has been pretty average, a little on the warmer side, but nothing extreme. You are probably familiar with the Gouin Reservoir, (40 miles north east of Lake Suzie) . The ice on the Gouin started melting a bit earlier than usual. Here is picture taken around march 12th

    unfortunately no !

    I live 35 miles north of montreal.

    I do spend a lot of time each year fishing on the Gouin, I also hunted moose in zone 13 for many many years.

    Me and a few of my hunting buddies also like snowmobiling. We try to keep an eye on the snow cover / ice thickness / game populations. Makes winter a lot more fun.
