Northern Ontario has a bear population nearing 150,000 and growing. Our camp is located in the midst of approximately two million acres of exclusive Bear Management area. We recently received a large new non-hunted area attached to our existing area. We are one of very few camps where our bear area is in one large block, not like some camps where you have to drive many miles to get to various areas.
We have hundreds of miles of logging roads to hunt. We start with approximately 300 bait sites. We design the hunt and which of these will be used based on the number of hits, activity in the area, weather, etc… By the time you get to camp, we have spent hundreds of hours determining which stands will be used that week. This is why we have a worldwide reputation for big bear. We have the area, look for the signs, and when the time is right, move you in for the hunt. A target area with elevated stands is available for rifle and bow sighting (please bring your own targets).
