We offer a semi guided high success drive in black bear hunt from our cabins on Off Lake. Our bear management area covers over 540 square miles of prime bear habitat. The size of our area increases your success with the numbers and quality of animals available. The method of hunting is sitting on stand at pre-baited sites. We utilize 55 gallon drums cabled to trees for holding the bait. This helps to ensure you get the shot on your trophy black bear. The bears roll the drums around to get the sweet feed out, helping you get the shot you need to harvest your trophy bear.

The bait sites are accessed by old logging roads. We start the pre baiting about a month before the hunt starts to ensure your success. This, along with limiting the number of black bear hunts every year, and the high number of bears in our area, our hunters typically enjoy a 100% shot opportunity and success rates of 90-100% on our bear hunts. The black bears in our area average 200 - 300 pounds, with some pushing over 500 pounds. If you are looking for a high success Ontario bear hunt, this is it. We do our best to provide the Canadian black bear hunting experience that you are looking for and cater to primitive weapons hunters as well as gun hunters.

Our bear hunt is a major part of our business, we put the time and dedication into the hunt that you are looking for and expecting from your outfitter. Why take any chances on your hunt and hard earned money, we will give you the best bear hunt available. This is our specialty and you can be assured you will have a successful hunt. After you harvest that trophy black bear, we will retrieve your bear and take care of all the skinning and field care of your trophy. We can also take care of getting your trophy Ontario black bear to a world renowned taxidermy shop located in Canada or recommend an award winning taxidermist in International Falls, MN to ensure the quality and experience of work done. The meat will be taken to a local butcher to be processed for you to take home or donated to a local charity.

 

Those on semi guided hunts should consider bringing an ATV to access some bait sites on the older logging roads as they are getting grown up. They are not necessary, but could be handy. Inquire for further details.

Fishing is also available in the mornings or after you harvest your bear on Off Lake for walleye, northern pike, smallmouth bass, crappie, and perch. We have 14' boats with 8 or 9.9HP motors available for your use and are included with the hunt at no additional charge.

• Taxes, hunting licenses, and meat processing are Not Included in Trip Price

• All rates are in US dollars

• On gun hunts we highly recommend using a 12 gauge with slugs or large diameter slow moving cartridges such as a 45/70, they create a bigger wound channel and result in quicker and cleaner kills than high powered rifles. Shots are at closer ranges due to the dense cover. Scopes should be of low magnification if used. Most shots can be expected from 20 - 60 yards.

• On archery hunts we highly recommend using mechanical broadheads such as Rage for an ethical clean kill. We have seen less wounded and non recovered bears when using these vs the tradition fixed broadheads. 

• Hunting  and fishing licenses must be purchased online or at Rainy Lake Sports in Fort Frances or Devlin's Corner Store in Devlin, Ontario before arrival. Please verify their hours before arrival and you must already have the Hunting version of the Ontario Outdoors Card or bring  a current or past gun hunting license from the state in which you reside or you will NOT be able to purchase a hunting license.


Quality ladder stands are provided during the bear hunt for your convenience and comfort.
Notice - A wounded animal is considered your animal, be sure of your shot. We consider a wounded animal a dead animal.
 

Sows with cubs are not allowed to be harvested. If a hunter is found to have knowingly shot a sow with cubs, the entire groups hunt will be terminated immediately without refund. We believe harvesting a sow with cubs is unethical even in the fall season. This practice will ensure a sustainable population and increases the number of trophy bears for years to come.
