Black Bear hunting
Gun, Bow, or Crossbow
Bears are plentiful here and our fall black bear hunts have been a huge success. We have a large bear management area that no other outfitters use. We will put you on a fresh hunting site that has been monitored with trail cameras during the pre-baiting period. A second site will be available to you, if needed. Our sites are easily accessed by boat. Our guides will help you with initial set up and direction, tracking, field dressing, retrieval, skinning, and butchering. Spend some time fishing too.

Extra Things To Bring If You Are Bear Hunting
- Previous or current gun hunting license (not bow, even if you are only bow hunting) from your home state or a valid Hunting Ontario Outdoors Card. We must see one of these before we can issue you your Ontario hunting license.
- Firearm of your choice: gun, bow, or crossbow in a case.
- One or two portable stands.
- Blaze orange vest or jacket and hat to be worn to and from stands. Camo blaze orange is not accepted.
- Bug jacket and hat. Bring a Thermacell if you have one.
- Cooler large enough to take quartered meat and hide home.
- Click here for Ontario Ministy of Natural Resources Hunting Regulations. Click her for Regulations Specific to Bear Hunting.
- Click here for the Non-Resident Firearm Declaration form that you will need in order to bring a gun into Canada. It is a fillable PDF form. Fill out and print three copies ahead of time, but don’t sign it until you show it to the border crossing guard. This form is for 8.5×14 inch paper, so either use that size paper or, if using 8.5×11 inch paper, set your printer page scaling to “fit to printable area”. Each hunter must have his own form. There will be a $25 charge, payable at the border. If you try to bring a firearm across the border without declaring it, it will be confiscated.
- Hand guns are not allowed in Canada. Don’t even think about it.
