2020 Hunting Season update

To our Valued Hunting Guests and Friends;

This year has not started out too well with the onset of the coronavirus across the world, however, on a bright note, we have no cases of covid-19 in our area.

We are planning for a hunting season this year, and are constantly in contact with border officials and the Canadian Government as to when the border will be reopened between the USA and Canada so we can proceed with supplying a great relaxing vacation to our guests..  

Our hunting area will be ready to go as soon as the border re-opens and Greg has already been out cleaning up fallen trees and such.

We will work with all our guests to reschedule dates, either to later in the season, or if not available, the following year.

Stay safe.

Your hosts,

Kim & Greg

These hunts are for groups of two and up to 4 hunters.  You will be the only ones in camp for the six day hunt.  Please call or email us if interested.

Successful 2019 Bear Hunting Season

Another successful Ontario bear hunting season has passed.  This past year we are 100% for seeing and harvesting multiple black bears.  The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry has set out an allocation for all businesses who have a Bear Management Area.  We had 3 Pope & Young Bears and one Boone & Crocket.  A lot of bigger bears were seen this past season.  Possibly they had a really good winter as coast on females were very thick and healthy.  The maps seemed to have less fat and thinner coats.

Ontario Bear Hunt season is fast approaching

The Ontario bear hunt season is fast approaching.  Greg has started getting stands ready as well as cleaning up some of the trees that have fallen over the winter and spring.  Lakes still have ice on them and we expect them to thaw by around May 8th.  There is not very much snow left on the ground, just in the shady spots.  

2019 Fall Fly-in Bear hunt available

We have a fall fly-in bear hunt available at one of our outposts from either Sunday August 18th to 25th or Saturday August 31st to September 7th.  Please call or email if interested Its for two and up to four hunters.

Fall Bear Hunt 2019

We have available a fall bear hunt for 2019.  Dates are August 24th to August 31st or August 31st to September 7th.  Call or email for details. 

Spring Bear Hunt 2019

We have available a date for a spring bear hunt from May 18 to 25th.  If interested in booking a date please give us a call or email.

Start of Spring Bear Hunting Season

We will be starting our spring bear hunting season in a couple of weeks.  Greg has started with prepping the hunting spots as there is typically lots of chainsaw work to be done in spring with trees falling on areas or across trails.  We haven’t been able to get north yet for a peek at those sites as there is still ice on the lakes.

Spring Bear Hunt-has sprung?

Spring must be on the way.  Saw our 1st robin.  Snowbanks are going steadily down and ice on lakes is melting with all the sunshine we’ve been having.  Some bears in town are already out on the prowl.  

Greg will be starting with the first part of our bear hunting program so all is ready for our first group of hunters.  We have not been to outposts yet as the airplanes are still iced out.  We are keeping tabs on the ice situation at outpost and will update
