Hunting in Canada…

or bear hunting, or hunting deer, moose & birds, O’Donnell’s Cottages is an ideal base camp for hunting in Central New Brunswick because it’s located midway between Fredericton and Miramichi. If you’re coming from away and looking for a hunting lodge in Canada, you’ll be pleased with our accommodations, guides, and friendly hospitality.

We are an experienced hunting outfitter. Our hunting lodge in New Brunswick, Canada, offers hunting packages for bear hunting, deer hunting, moose hunting and bird hunting. New Brunswick has a great assortment of wildlife – from small hunts to upland bird to the pursuit of large game – a taste for every flavour. As always, O’Donnell’s can custom fit a hunting package to include a hunting lode, meals and a hunting guide. Some hunting licenses may be purchased onsite while others can be arranged for you.

Our warm and cozy hunting lodges are a perfect way to end a long day of bear hunting, moose hunting or deer hunting. So round up the gang and we’ll see you during hunting season!

While Sunday hunting isn’t allowed in New Brunswick, it is an excellent day to arrive in camp to prepare for an early Monday morning start. 

If you are entering from the US you must obtain a Non-Resident Declaration form and have it ready to sign in front of customs when entering Canada.  This form can be obtained online at the Canadian Firearms Center or by calling 1.800.731.4000 in North America.

Every year we get a large number of hunters who like to call O’Donnell’s their home during hunting season. Our warm and cozy cottages are the perfect way to end a long day in the woods.
