Well after months of waiting and gear selection I'm a little less than 2 weeks from what is going to be my first bucket list hunt.... Ontario fly in Moose hunt; and I thought I'd share like Nogalus Prairie did with his Yukon sheep hunt.

My self and 2 buddies are flying from DFW to Winnipeg then drive 3 hours north to the air base for our outfitter in Vermilion Bay and float plane to the lake we will be hunting.


Location - Solitary Lake Ontario



Gear - Many thanks to Nogalus Prairie for his suggestion on rain gear. I learned my lesson with cheap rain gear while fishing Confusion lake with the same outfitter last summer and after searching in vein for REAL rain gear in the Austin during the middle of summer I decided to buy a lot of my gear when I was in Seattle for July 4th..... Helly Hansen Impertech coat and camo pants, no bibs were available so added a set of Carhart suspenders to the pants.


Rifle Case(air travel) - After posting for opinions on the forum and weighing my options I went with the Pelican 1750 and couldn't be happier, this thing is built like a CAT dozer.


Rifle - Ruger M77MKII Stainless .300win, Rifle basix trigger, Hogue Stock- Custom work by Kampfeld Customs recessed crown, spiral fluted barrel and black cerakote.
Scope is Leupold Vari-XIII 4.5-14x40

Ammo - 200gr Nosler Partition, Remington brass, 72gr RL22 Powder & Winchester Magnum Primer



Cutlery - Hopefully we'll need: Cold Steel SRK in Carbon 5, Cold Steel large fillet knife, Cold Steel master hunter, Jewel Diamond stick and Gerber camp saw with extra bone blades.

How will you get the meat home if you're successful?

@ Booger.... One of the guys going hunting with me went fishing up there in August and hauled all of our gear including ice chests and left his F250 up there in the outfitters barn; so we fly up with our rifles and will be driving back.

@CenTex..... We're going out with Wilderness Air out of Vermilion Bay Ontario

https://www.wilderness-air-escapes.com/hunting/moose-hunting-canada/

If you click on the link above - The still picture at the bottom of the page is one of the guys I'm going hunting with(he's on the right), he got that moose a couple of years ago the last time he went hunting up there.

If you want a close up; in the slide slow of pics - He's the last pic in the slide show holding that Moose's rack standing behind a trailer.

I like your ammo choice. I shot them out of my 300 wby for a few years. I shot a 225 lb boar head shot with it, after bringing the hog to the bone yard I propped him up with a rail road tie behind him and shot straight through both shoulders and into the rail road tie. The bullet went about 3/4 way through the rail road tie and retained a little over 60% weight.

Good luck, moose would be a cool hunt!

Good luck and thanks for sharing! I may have your exact rifle and would like to speak with you about those handlloads!

That's a bucket list item for me too!

Any update?
