Big North Lodge
is a drive-in lodge at Minaki, 25 miles north of Kenora, Ontario. We offer the best black bear hunts in the Minaki area. You can hunt 600 square miles of prime black bear country with over 30 baited stands, accessible by truck , boat, or ATV. Our success over the last 12 years has been over 80 % with both bow & rifle hunters. All our hunters will see bears, but will have the chance to patiently wait for the trophy of a life-time. Bears taken average 250 pounds, but 300-400 pound bears are taken as well. We have the #2 Ontario record for Black Bear shot with a bow at well over 600 pounds, with Boone and Crockett Score of 21 10/16. We hunt the first 3 weeks of September, limiting the number of bear hunters to 6 per week to provide you with the best opportunities for success. Our fully-guided hunts can either be American Plan or Housekeeping Packages.
