Dinorwic Black Bear Hunting


Pine Sunset Lodge - As a result of the availability of food, our hunting guests harvest some of the biggest Black Bears in Ontario. Black Bears average 300 pounds in our BMA, which is much larger then the Ontario average. Every years guests harvest bears, which reach close to the 600-pound mark. Bears that big are just not available in most places in Ontario. We don't want you to think every guest gets the opportunity to harvest a 600-pound Black Bear but we do want you to know there is a chance. Having that chance builds anticipation, which makes your bear hunt exciting and adventurous. Our bear hunting guests enjoy a 100% success rate and have the confidence to pass on smaller bears to wait for the big old males. We only take a limited amount of hunters each fall to prevent over-harvesting and maintain the unbelievable bear hunting. As a result of our conservation efforts, there is a 2 to 3 year waiting list to hunt our BMA.
