Hunting

Prime deer and moose country

Kenauk Nature is one of North America’s largest and oldest private fish and game reserves. This vast 65,000 acre private estate was established in the 19th century to conserve and protect the wildlife habitat. More than 100 years later, a staff of biologists continue to maintain nature’s balance and preserve the reserve’s spectacular resources. Our habitat management plan, established with the Quebec government, strives to maintain healthy populations of large deer and moose, which results in the kind of hunting experience that keeps our hunters coming back year after year. Our management plan is reviewed annually and revised in accordance with changes in population levels. All deer and moose hunting licenses are sold at the entrance gate.

During the hunting season, Kenauk Nature also offers our successful hunters a variety of additional activities, including excellent trout and bass fishing, a 9-station sporting clay course and a Land Rover Experience Driving School.

    Deer Hunting

    Kenauk adheres to the Quality Deer Management (QDM) strategy (in effect since 2008) and we only allow hunting for male deer with six points or more. In order to support the growth of our deer population and offer a sustainable hunt for generations to come we are also reducing our baited hunting. As always, our guides are ready to provide a unique and high quality hunting experience for our guests.
