Ontario Moose Hunting Lodges & Archery Information

In Ontario, longbows, recurves, compounds, and crossbows may be used during special archery seasons. For moose, recurve and compound bows must have a draw weight of 49 pounds (22 kg) or more when measured at a draw length of 28 inches (700 mm) or less. A crossbow must have a draw weight of 119 pounds (54 kg) or more at a draw length of 12 inches (300 mm) or more.

Minimum specifications also apply to broadheads and bolts used when moose hunting. Bow hunters wishing to join the ranks of those who have harvested the king of Ontario’s big game mammals must be extremely competent and take only high-percentage shots. Bow hunters commonly use tree stands.
