With numbers estimated at 75,000 to 100,000,
Ontario has one of the largest black bear
populations in North America. Black bears are
distributed widely across northern and central
Ontario, with a range that extends into southern
Ontario’s lush Great Lakes-St. Lawrence forest

In all units with a bear season, hunting is open
to both residents and non-residents.During the
time of the hunt, bears are eating to accumulate
body fat necessary to carry them through winter.
Baiting can be a particularly successful hunting
method, with the hunter in a tree stand or in a
ground blind. We continuously keep the bait
pits well stocked with "goodies" for the bear


hunting region

We hunt 3 bear management areas that total over 800 square kilometers. This is an exclusive area for Border Country Outfitters and it is strictly managed for quality bears and they are extremely abundant in our area. The Rainy River district is famous for big bears and many different color phases of black bears. Each year there are several pope and young bears harvested and there is always a chance to get a Boone and Crockett bear. The possibility of harvesting one in that class is slim, but our large management area will give you that chance and two of our hunters have done it. Come and take the trip of a lifetime and be a part of this great experience.

bear baiting

We set up tree stands around bait piles for either the rifle or bow hunter. We use a variety of bait to bring in bears. By replenishing the baits daily we ensure that you will be successful in your hunt. We will only put you in a frequently visited bait pile to ensure you the most successful hunt as possible.

It is very common to see multiple bears in every sitting. We do have some huge bears that love our "candy" that we feed them. Bring your camera because you could have some outstanding photo opportunities with a mom and cubs.

Our bear hunting area encompasses nearly a 1,000 square kilometers. We basically hunt a new area each year, repeating the pattern every four years. We spread 60 baits over 260 road kilometers to ensure a wide area of coverage and to prevent baiting the same bears into multiple baits.
