Ontario

(This page is best viewed if allowed to completely load before scrolling down)

Northern Ontario is another one of those special places for me. I like the country, the people, and the fact that there are still places up there you can get lost in. At least I can. It is also almost a magical place for me as well for it is where a few of the early hunting archers roamed the country looking for moose and bear. Forrest Nagler, Roy Case, Paul Klopsteg, and Fred Bear. There are other places where the bear hunting is better, the moose bigger, and the country wilder, but there are few places I enjoy hunting more. Tag along on an Ontario bowhunt.

Unloading for a short one day float for moose


The bulls come down to the creek looking for cows during the rut. Find trails like these to locate best areas to call from


Floating Jackfish Creek. Good moose country


On a 2 or 3 week hunt we always like to take a day or two to just kick back, relax, and enjoy ourselves. We're getting ready for a lake shore lunch of walleye after a mornings fishing


Getting down to business. Trying to call in a bull (88K)


Good size Ontario bear


Although this is a pretty good size bear with an excellant pelt, I chose to just watch. He's probably still up there


Unlike park bears, black bear in the wild are very shy and wary creatures, and this one...


...found something here he did not like and left the area


Nice boar moved to the beach and ready to be picked up with boat.
