We love the outdoors

The beautiful wilderness that surrounds the property at Agnew Lake Lodge provides an excellent diet and ecosystem to attract and raise some of the best Ontario black bears and creates extraordinary Canadian bear hunting experiences.

When we are guiding hunting groups and creating the unforgettable experience that is Ontario black bear hunting, we limit ourselves to four hunters per guide per week. 

We strive to make this a unique, personalized experience and to ensure each hunter can harvest a trophy. With the abundance of black bears in Ontario, we can boast high success rates and facilitate the hunt of a lifetime. If you are looking for a fun, exciting and memorable Canada black bear hunting adventure, then look no further.

The Hunt Guide is Nick McCormick; he is an independent guide that can be contacted by calling 705-862-2045. Please check with Nick his availability before booking your accommodations.

Agnew Lake Lodge, established in 1936, has a long history of successful hunts. Although some years are better than others, an average of 80 - 90 % success rate is normal.

Most bear hunting is done out of a pre-built tree stand. A cleared viewing area in a direct line from the tree stand is used to bait the bears. Bear baiting is done in different ways; each guide has his/her own preference. 

Bear hunting is an exciting sport. Although sometimes the baited bear hunt is put in a negative spotlight , it is not as easy as it seems. Sitting in your stand, adrenalin starts rushing when branches around you are crunching , and a bear starts circling the baited area without showing himself. Never knowing if or where it will appear , or the uncertainty whether there is one or more bears in the area. Patience is like with any other type of hunting a winning factor.
