Black Bear Track "Black Bear Hunts in Ontario . . .

. . . A World-Class Hunting Experience"

Note: Foggy Mountain is not currently offering deer hunts in Ontario.

A giant Ontario black bear Bear hunting at our northwestern Ontario lodge is extremely productive. We have many real big bear, and also a few cinnamon and blond colored variations.

We are located over a hundred miles from Thunder Bay, hunting the Nipigon, Geraldton and Longlac regions. The long sub-arctic day affords ample opportunity to hunt a trophy bear and to experience the most awesome pike, walleye and trout fishing imaginable.

Prime Black Bear Habitat with Controlled Access

You will hunt in one of the most productive black bear habitats in North America. Our area is all Ontario government leased land with controlled access. The black bear in your territory are under-hunted, resulting in a growing bear population, with many stands having multiple bears visiting them.

Unsurpassed opportunity to hunt a Trophy Bear.

We strive to give our hunters the shooting opportunities expected of a truly world-class hunting outfitter. This requires knowledge, skill, effort, advance preparation, and experience. Bear hunting is our life, so no matter how you cut it, a part time guide can not give a full time commitment.

Our highly processed baits have incredible drawing power. They are continually adjusted as bear feeding preferences change. Your bait site, stand and blind are precisely positioned and meticulously maintained only after our careful study of prevailing winds, terrain, and game patterns.

A sure shot and a quick, clean kill.

The black bear is a trophy game animal we know and respect. Powerful and crafty, the bear's trademarks are strength and endurance. His nose is as sensitive as the most sophisticated radar system. The bears feed and travel patterns through our thick fir and dense bogs make him a challenging animal to hunt.

This black ghost can appear at your stand and then disappear in a blink. Scent and noise control are critical to your success. You are provided pre-built, permanent stands, portables and ground blinds with all obstructing branches and brush cleared from your line of fire. Stands are placed from 11 to 15 feet high. You are welcome to bring your own favorite stand. Our stands offer bowhunters an average shot of 18 yards. Rifle hunters will shoot at distances of 75 yards or less.

Please note: Handguns are not legal in Canada. Cross-bows are legal.

The black bear demands shooting excellence before he will fall to a hunter. Even at these close ranges, a precision shot is essential. Your target is a 4 to 5 inch square (boiler room) area just behind the front shoulder.

Three trophy black bear for the record book on this hunts one day results Bow-hunters: it makes no difference how good a shot you are. Unless you hit a bear exactly in the boiler room with the arrow heading towards the bear's head, you will get nothing but a wounded animal.

The black bear is unlike any other game animal you have ever hunted. When hit, he will not lie down and bleed out like a deer. But rather, will run until he dies - which could be up to 20 miles. Therefore, a precision shot is essential.

Those of you using a gun have many options. You do not have to even wait until the bear is on bait for a good shot. Also, a head and chest shot can produce when combined with accurate shooting.

And never rush a shot. But when you do have a good shot - take it. Do not assume the bear may go left or right, or even to the actual bait. Be positive of what and where you are's your responsibility.

"Should you have a last minute opportunity to get away for some quality hunting, just give me a call and I may be able to accommodate you. I appreciate fellow hunters and their busy schedules, and will do everything possible to accommodate you." - Brandon Bishop.

Fishing Opportunities:

Fishing for trout, walleye, and northern pike is outstanding where we will be. Previously, I was not concerned at all about the fishing but only great bear hunting. However, it turned out that there is quality fishing. Spinning gear fishermen and fly fishermen enjoy themselves. There will be some boats and motors available to rent. Trolling and jig fishing is popular.
