Moose Hunting..
by: Robbie

I don't live there but if you can book a self guided fly out hunt for a week or ten days. If you get a moose with one or two friends to share expenses then usually not too bad. Normally flights do not have to be too long and you are into country no one else can get to unless they fly. Have a look on google earth at the area,
Good luck on your hunt..

Nakina Hunting
by: Jim

Hi, I have hunted the Nakina Area for several years now, and know the area quite well.

The last 2 years our group has bagged 4 moose including an absolute monster buck in 2011.

The best advice I can give you is to buy a good Topo map, and find isolated water sources (small rivers off the beaten path are the best). The reason for this is because Nakina has an abudance of moose and more and more people are learning about this place. The hunters tend to camp right off the trails and on the shores of the main lakes. This pushes the moose back deeper and deeper into the woods and forces them to feed and drink in those isolated swamps and rivers. The last 2 years we have seen about a dozen moose in spots like these (4 the day before the season started last year).

Bring a light boat with a motor so you can travel up river for a couple miles to really get into their territory, be ready to cross a set of rapids or two. Once you get far enough from the main trails, you will see moose tracks like you have never seen before (some spots look like a heard of farming cows roam the area)

Luckily for us, some of the hunters that go to Nakina take it for granted that they will see moose, and they sometimes hunt right on the main trails or right from their camp sites, meaning that these isolated oasises are always uninterupted by other hunters.

As for Camp sites, I camp at Lucy lake, and it is a terrific spot since you have clear water, a beach for easy access and campfires, plus the Splake fishing is terrific. It is also in the middle of it all, another good place is Boston Lake. Boston lake is a better spot if you prefer to glass for moose or call, since a lot of the area is clear cut and was control burned about 10 years ago.

Last year, I caught a glimpse of a monster bull in my secret spot (no way i'm posting this location online). Who must be about 6-7 years old, and has a 65-70 inch rack. Im going back to get him this year, he is worth the half hour ATV ride, the 2 hour trek up river/rapids and half hour trek through the bush. It leads to exactly what I described, a small creek, which is blocked by a beaver damn and created a swamp about 50-75 yards in diameter.

Hope this helps, and good huntin'

Hunting restrictions in Nakina area?
by: Doug

We are heading up to Nakina this year for our moose hunt, planning to camp NW of Nakina. I heard that some areas are restricted to moose hunting.
I am not sure if this is because of native restrictions or outfitters, or game reserves.
Can anyone shed some light on this? Are there areas that we should avoid?
Thanks for your help.
