Standard Bear Hunt

This Ontario Bear Hunt is six days of prime hunting.  The bear hunt is located within our Ontario Bear Management Area, will appeal to the seasoned Bear Hunter that has done a fully guided bear hunt and wishes to be more involved in the actual baiting, tracking, field dressing, and processing of their animal.

Our standard Ontario Bear hunt has pre-baited active sites and guides will assist you when needed. We  provide all bear bait while here in camp.   There is a variety of permanent or portable stands set up at strategic bear hunting locations.  The hunters will have the best chance at a trophy animal. This Ontario Black Bear hunt will be exclusive to a very limited number of Bear Hunters.  This ensures a high success rate for the harvest of mature Bears.  The Bear hunt requires the use of your ATV and/or Truck.  If you don’t have either, we can still get you into some great spots for your Ontario bear hunt.  They will be within a shorter walking distance off old, unused logging roads within our black bear managemt area.

This Ontario black bear hunt is based out of our Pickerel Lake main camp.  Pricing includes a light housekeeping cabin, which is located a short distance from your Bear Hunting site.  Boats, motors and fuel for fishing are supplied during non-hunting times.  The fishing is great, so bring your fishing gear.  We provide you with bait for the six day bear hunt and an orientation of the bear hunting area when you arrive.  Other services include skinning and freezer service for meat processing.  There is an archery range set up to practice your shots and tune your bows.

We have a variety of past and present hunters that will give a reference as to the quality of our hunts.  Pickerel Lake Outfitters offers a hunt that we’d like to have offered to us if we were looking for one for ourselves.


2016 was  the first year that we could offer a spring bear hunt.  The spring bear hunt will be conducted the same as our standard bear hunt.  There have been some regulation changes with regards to the baiting by the OMNRF but will not affect the quality of our hunts.

The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry has deemed a trial period for a spring black bear hunt to take place this coming spring until 2020.  Since this trial time frame the Ontario MNRF’s management plan has been successful and will continue from there.  The OMNRF has deemed the spring hunt valuable to the harvesting of bears with no harm to the population and have continued to date.  Please give us a call or contact us if you have questions regarding an Ontario bear hunting trip with us.
