When the days grow shorter and the nights become colder, Beauchêne’s scenic landscape begins to change; Mother Nature paints the landscape with brilliant colours of fall. Hunting season is upon us! It is then when the night turns cold, the hills break into colour and the Loons raft up out on our big lakes that Beauchêne’s vastness belongs to the hunter! Although white tail deer are seen quite frequently, there is no open season. However, this is prime moose, wolf and bear territory! The mixed hardwood and coniferous forests and the many beaver ponds and small marshes along some of the waterways provide excellent hunting terrain and opportunities for these big animals.
The season starts with our VIP Moose Hunt which gives select hunters prime exclusive territory in the peak of the rut. This hunt is truly first rate! Your hunt starts long before you arrive at the lodge with our experienced guides scouting for animals all through the pre-season. Beauchêne’s carefully managed moose herds offer unusually high chances of success for guests. Over the long term, deer and moose alternate in their predominance but right now the moose are the favourite quarry for our guests. Quebec regulations permit hunters to hunt moose without entering into a draw system. Here at Beauchêne we offer several different packages for the moose hunting season. The first one being our “VIP” hunt where only four guests per week will have access to our 50,000 acre territory during the peak of the rut (Example September 10 to September 24). Our guest will stay in one of our luxury “Bird” Chalet’s”, where they will enjoy excellent quarters, great comraderie around the beautiful granite fireplace, and fine meals at the Lodge. This package is all inclusive! From the use of lodge vehicles, boats and motors when needed to the butchering and preparation of meat for the home trip! Guided or unguided each hunting party will be assigned an exclusive “high percentage” hunting area within our 50,000 acre territory, allowing you and or your party to focus on the hunt without the crowds or competition from other hunters. You will be accompanied throughout the hunt by an expert guide, familiar with our territory and the habits of our Moose. After your Moose is down, enjoy the small game hunting Beauchene has to offer. Here at Beauchene there is a great number of Ruffed or Spruce Grouse and Snowshoe Hare that will provide excellent sport for a keen eye if you wish to carry a shotgun along the miles and miles of bush roads and trails. After a successful hunt enjoy the fabulous fishing Lac Beauchêne offers. Other packages available are our outpost cabins where the rates include accommodation (no bedding or towels), utensils, propane fuel for stove, refrigerator, barbeque and lights, and an extensive, private territory for each group of two hunters (boats, motor and fuel included where required by area assigned). Or you may decide on our main accommodations (white house, bear, fox / otter cabins) where the rates include your accommodations (all bedding, linen, maid services, etc.) meals and private territory for each two hunters.

Our “VIP” spring bear hunt / fishing packages are available for a 3 day, 4 day or 7 day stay in our main accomodations or one of our outpost camps. You will be assigned to one of our baited sites.
