Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge is quickly becoming known as an epicenter for the largest remote moose population remaining in western Canada. Exceptionally huge bull moose wander the coastline every fall in search of potential mates and are easily wooed to within camera range by our master moose caller, Albert “Butch” Saunders. Not for the faint of heart or weak of knee, these lovesick moose are sure to keep adrenaline levels at an all-time high, as Albert works his “moose magic”!
