Est. since 1972 is a good endorsement that we know what we're doing when it comes to bear hunting by now.   Over previous years we shot so many nuisance bear that offering bear hunts was the best solution to not wasting the animal.

About Our Black Bear Hunts

Bear Hunt Rates   BOOK NOW

Download Our Hunt BookletWe invite you to join us to experience a true Canadian black bear hunt in Northwestern Ontario. The black bears in our area of Northwestern Ontario are abundant and our success rate speaks for itself. We operate a first class hunt and you can be assured every effort is taken to give you the hunt of a lifetime. We take an average of 14 hunters annually in the fall so BOOK now to ensure your Ontario black bear hunt and you will not be disappointed!  

We offer semi guided yet highly successful drive in black bear hunts    Our bear management area covers over 1,200 square miles of prime bear habitat. The size of our area itself increases your success along with the numbers and quality of animals available. The method of hunting is sitting over pre-baited sites and it's mandatory to bring with you a safe, solid and secure tree stand.  We recommend ladder stands for the most comfort keeping in mind the long days you might spend on the stand, but, whatever you bring keep in mind if you want to bring along a self-climber that we have very loose bark on our trees and that they hold many limbs.  Screw in pegs are legal in Ontario.  Please EMAIL us if you have any questions.

The bait sites are accessed by old logging roads and are easy to access. We start the pre baiting a few weeks before the hunt starts to ensure your success. This, along with limiting the number of black bear hunts every year, and the high number of bears in our area, our hunters typically enjoy a 100% shot opportunity and success rates of 90-100% on our bear hunts overall.

The black bears in our area average 200 - 350 pounds, with some pushing almost 500 pounds. If you are looking for a high success Ontario bear hunt, this is it. We do our best to provide that Canadian black bear hunting experience that you are looking for and cater to: 

  • bow hunters

  • primitive weapons hunters

  • gun hunters

Our bear hunt is an important part of our business and we take it very serious with time and dedication into the hunt that you look for and expect from an outfitter. Why take any chances on your hunt and hard earned money, we will give you the best bear hunt available. This is our specialty and you can be assured you will have as successful hunt as possible.

Our hunts begin the first Saturday on or just after August 15th and continues until the end of the 2nd week of September.  Since we have consistently managed our bear population for several years we determine the number of hunters we will take according to the bear population we observe the previous year.  Therefore we do not take reservations for more than two years in advance.  Check our References  

What We Need to Know

We will need to know what type of weapon each member in the hunt party will be hunting with and whether they will be hunting from tree stand or would prefer a ground stand.  Providing us with the name, address and phone number of each hunter in the hunt party either at the time of booking with us, or, when sending the deposits, will accelerate the time it takes for us to fill out forms prior to your arrival and get you out to the bait stands sooner.


Days to Hunt

Seven (7 days) - Arrive Saturday and depart the following Saturday

Transportation Requirements

Since most of our baits are very remote groups should anticipate driving their members to and from the sites. Most of our baits are road access and we provide private areas for each hunting group so that dropping members off and picking them up will be systematic and easy.  Also, you can anticipate that no one else will be hunting in your area during the week of your hunt.  Subsequently, what we provide for you is an area exclusively for your hunt group.
