Ontario Black Bear Hunting / Rifle Hunts
Bow hunters, please click here
We are lucky to be located in the Gogama Wilderness Region, which is well known for having an extremely high population of big trophy Black Bears. We have over 70 feeding stations, stratigiaclly spread out over many square miles. The feeding stations are 1.5 to 2 miles apart and are accessible by boat, truck and ATV.
The bears in our hunting management area are among the biggest in Ontario. Our guests enjoy an extremely high harvest rate. Sightings are common and most hunters can pass on smaller bears and wait for a big trophy Black Bear to come into range. Guests also see wolves at our feeding stations so if you purchase an attitional small game license, you can take a wolf if the opportunity arrises. We have tree stands but you are welcome to bring your own.
There are some rules / tips rifle hunters should be aware of:
· You can use a 20 gauge with a slug. A 270 or bigger is recommended
· When taking a shot, the bear has to be 65 yards or closer.
· Hunter orange must be worn at all times while hunting or transporting to-and-from the feeding stations.
· It is illegal to shoot cubs or a sow with cubs, so examine the situation completely.
· Residents must be at least 15 years old and non-residents must be 16 years old to hunt in Ontario.
· Hunters need to bring their old hunting license and proper personal identification.
· By law, all guns must have a trigger lock and be locked and in a transportation case within 1/2 hour after sunset and 1/2 hour before sunrise
· If you want the best Black Bear hunting vacation, Green Wilderness Lodge is your best choice. Please contact us with any questions.
