The Matapedia name comes from the Micmac language, meaning “confluence”. For hundreds of years, the native Micmacs tribes of the region hunted moose, as the climate was harsh for agriculture in Gaspesia. They became very successful hunters and many European pioneers coming to the New World learned from them the much-needed skills of field dressing efficiently. The small size, ergonomy and maneuverability of this model pays tribute to old-time skinning techniques which rendered maximum meat without puncturing the rumen or damaging the skin of big game.
