Black Bear Hunting
Black Bear hunting is a time honored tradition here at Anishinabi Lodge. David spent his life helping his dad prepare for the Black Bear hunt and continues the tradition with the knowledge and skills that produce a highly productive and enjoyable bear hunting experience.
Anishinabi Lodge's Black Bear Management Area (BMA) is located north of Vermilion Bay and west of Ear Falls in a region that has a diverse terrain with many lakes, streams and rocky outcrops. There is an abundance of food and good denning areas, thus the survival rate of the bears over the winter is excellent and many males can grow old and huge. The average size Black Bear in the area is around 200 pounds, which is much larger than the Ontario average. Guests have harvested multiple bears over the last few years in the 300 to 450 pound range. Black Bears in the 250 to 350 range are a reasonable expectation but we don't want you to think there are a bunch of 450 pounders walking around the lodge. A Black Bear that large is rare and is considered an extreme trophy.
