Ontario Bear hunting update – May 16/2024

We have our first bear hunters in camp starting this weekend to coincide with opening of walleye season. All of our baits are being hit hard. It has greened up a lot over the last couple of weeks. This will be a great season. We’ve also seen some wolf sign out there on the roads

Ontario Spring Bear Hunt

Well, the snow has gone all except for some spots that have thick cover. We have been out to the spots we are hunting and all is good for the return of the spring hunt which starts in a couple of weeks. We haven’t seen any bears out and about yet as the grass has not started to get green and the bears need the green grass to blow the bowel plug they have to hibernate over the winter. Frogs are out in the little mud holes and are a sure sign spring is here. Also the loons are calling quite a lot welcoming spring back

Spring Bear hunt Cancellation

We just had a spring bear hunt cancellation for May 25th to June 1st. We can take a group of two to four hunters. Great fishing is included with boats and motors included in your trip. Please call or email if interested

Fair Weather in NW Ontario – Go Bear Hunt

Here is NW Ontario we’ve had some unusual spring like weather that has brought a few bears out of hibernation. This is most likely due to their dens being flooded out when able 0 temperatures have hung around. They will crawl back in and go back to sleep once cooler temps arrive.

Fall Bear hunting

We had a great fall bear hunting season. The last week was a little warm but that didn’t stop the hunters from being successful. We harvested a few big bears that had so much fat on them, we were surprised at the amount. We are now taking booking for the spring and fall bear hunting dates and still have a couple spots available

Successful Spring Bear Hunt

We’ve had a very successful bear hunt so far this spring. Lots of bears around, rut is about to start and lots of activity

Ontario Bear Hunting Update

We have been busy getting stands and other jobs done so we can have a great Ontario bear hunting season. We’ve already been seeing lots of sign while we’ve been out and about.
