Game Birds

During the recent past we have expanded our small game hunting! In recent years,  we built a new camp mainly to cater to Partridge (Ptarmigan) hunters in the Long Range Mountain area of the Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland in a place known for its Partridge and Caribou hunting. Those who hunted here have commented that the bird hunting was "too good to be true", (too many birds, a good complaint!) This area is remote and hasn't been hunted for many years, resulting in a large number of birds. This camp is located on the edge of the Long Range Mountains and near a glacial valley with some spectacular waterfalls and magnificent scenery. You will also have lots of wildlife such as Arctic Hare, Caribou, Moose, Fox, and Black Bears to photograph. Don't forget your Camera! In one recent season scheduled hunters successfully finished hunting in just two days, giving them plenty of time to take part in some optional activities. We supply you with food, guides, showers, and cook. Parsons Pond Outfitters P.O. Box 130, Parsons Pond, Newfoundland, Canada, A0K-3Z0 Tel:709 243-7207 Cell:709-458-7420 e-mail:

Ptarmigan hunting can be very enjoyable.  You never know what will happen from one day to the next.  The weather pattern can change from being a summer like day on one day and a cold north wind on the next.  But whatever the weather pattern, you will enjoy very scenic environment which includes colorful thickets of willow and dwarf birch.  Later in September, you are glad that you dressed for the weather.  When you travel along a ridge or over a rocky craig, be prepared to come upon numerous stretch- necked, pinto-patterned ptarmigan. To hunt migratory game birds in Canada, you require a Federal Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit (MGBHP) with an affixed Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp. A single MGBHP is required in Canada for hunting in different provinces and territories. It is not transferable and must only be used by the person who completed and signed it. The MGBHP must be carried with you at all times when hunting or when in possession of migratory game birds in a place other than the holder’s residence. The Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit must be shown to game officers upon request. Depending on the areas you wish to hunt, you may also require a provincial or territorial permit. Check with the wildlife Agency in the area where you plan to hunt as to provincial or territorial requirements prior to hunting migratory game birds.
Hunting in Newfoundland and Labrador at its best.
