Chapleau Ontario Black Bear Hunting

Located just 25 miles south of the Chapleau Crown Game Preserve, Five Mile Lake Lodge sits in the heart of the Black Bear Capital of the World. We hunt the area surrounding our lake and other nearby lakes, streams and marshes from tree stands, as well as groundblinds depending on the terrain and your preference. This prime habitat has a healthy black bear population and we have kept it strong by not over harvesting and only bringing in a small group of hunters each year.

We run a quality bear hunt and guarantee to put you on an active bait. As mentioned, our hunt has been kept on the small side, bringing in between 10 and 12 hunters per year, with our new and quite large area, we have the ability to bring in more hunters, but have decided not to and will continue our policy of harvest management to keep our bear population strong.

All baiting begins at least one month prior to the start of our hunt, which we run the last two weeks of August and first week of September. Our proven baiting techniques, along with the use of trail cameras, provide the hunter with the best opportunity to harvest an animal by determining the time of day that the animal is coming to the bait. This also assists us in sizing of bears and if sows and cubs are present at which time we abandon the site. Most baits can be accessed with a short walk from your vehicle off logging roads and trails, but ATV's are always welcome if you prefer. Your Black Bear Hunt includes a fully equipped housekeeping cottage, boat, motor and gas, all baiting prior to your hunt and baiting assistance during your hunt, retrieval of downed animal, treestands and/or groundlbinds, skinning, quartering and freezing.
