NEXT RIDGE OUTFITTERS
Rugged. Scenic. Untouched
Few words can describe the beauty and majesty that welcomes you upon your first steps into the high alpine ridges and valleys of Western Newfoundland’s Long Range Mountains.
Our seasoned, knowledgeable guides await the opportunity to serve you in a land abundant in trophy moose, bear, Atlantic salmon and trout, the size most hunters and anglers only dream about.
Often described as "the Alaska of Eastern Canada", this hunting range is one of Newfoundland’s best-kept secrets. Bordered by Gros Morne National Park to the east and the waters of the Gulf of St. Lawrence to the west, the rugged North Arm Hills and Serpentine Valley harbour some of the highest moose, bear and Atlantic salmon densities on the entire island.
Hunt Eastern Canadian Moose, Black Bear, and fish for Atlantic Salmon
WHAT TO EXPECT?
World Class Hunting
We take great pride in providing a remote, backcountry hunt with top-quality service and an ample opportunity to return home with a Eastern Canadian Moose.
Atlantic salmon are one of the most intense fighting freshwater game fish in the world, and Newfoundland is one of few places left to catch them. We also offer the opportunity to land huge sea-run trout on this angler’s adventure.
Enjoy the comforts of home at our lodge, accented with breathtaking views, a crackling wood fireplace and Newfoundland grub, prepared fresh by our chef. And if you’re feeling more adventurous, head on to our fly-out, remote spike camps for the experience of a lifetime.
Jaw Dropping Scenery
This place is like no other. Few get to experience this part of Newfoundland, with its dramatic mountain range, rugged shores of Serpentine Lake and pristine waters of the Serpentine River.

Your Destination For Moose
Our guides know the area intimately. The selective harvest and high moose population density has worked in unison to keep our big game quality impeccably high. Our two hunt style offerings both provide hunters of varied physical comfort epic hunts in the Newfoundland backcountry.
Great hunts and great outfitters are few and far between. First there has to be a world class hunting territory, with world class game animals and then there has to be an outfitter who is organized, honest, hard working, dedicated and service oriented to run the operation. There has to be good food, good guides and that so very important “good time had by all” when the dust finally clears. The hunt my daughter Eva, our cameraman Matt Gibson and I experienced with Shane and the crew at Next Ridge Outfitting was absolutely one of those rare great outfitted hunts! Everything was better than advertised. The food was excellent, our guide was the best moose guide I’ve had the pleasure of working with, the camps were top of the line and there were literally moose everywhere we looked! I would recommend this hunt to anyone who is looking for a “great hunt and a great outfitter”! One of my top ten hunts.
From start to finish my experience was wonderful. Everyone was personable, considerate, knowledgeable, helpful, committed, put forth extra effort and were really enjoyable to be with. They worked as hard as you wanted and then some. The camp was comfortable and the food was excellent. The whole experience far exceeded my expectations
Everything was great! The country, the amount of game and quality was awesome! The camp is set up nice and the food is great! Great people. Thank you!
The guides are awesome, worked together well, tried to cater to our needs. They are both very talented, cook, clean, preparing meals for the day’s hunt. Really great time. The helicopter ride was great.
I really enjoyed the style of hunting – walking, no vehicles. The country was beautiful and nearly untouched by man or vehicle. The guides were friendly and skilled. Supper and hot showers were great!
I've hunted with NRO twice and both were very successful! Not just in terms of trophy, but the overall experience. At first I was a little skeptical with the numbers they were boasting about, but after the first few days it was obvious that this was a moose hunter's haven and the numbers were real. Having hunted moose for over 25 years it's definitely a place like no other, and for this reason I'm going back to see Shane and his crew in 2023.
