Overall Impression: Poor

9 hunters took 4 bear. Guide for this lodge had 4 or 5 really active baits. Was completely overwhelmed by 9 hunters although we were booked well in advance. The other baits we hunted were being hit occasionally and had not become really active ( multiple bears). Guide did not even have a flashlight on him when we went to recover the bears we killed. Very little personal interaction, he gave the impression that he really didn't care if we killed a bear or not. Was not really prepared to move hunters to active baits. This guy was a retired game management officer who I feel was still more into his old job rather than taking care of his hunters. I will say that the Lodge itself was nice and the service was superb. We caught some really nice fish. That salvaged the trip overall. The bears that we did take were nice. 550lbs,350lbs(bow),250lbs,200lbs, really good for Ontario. As has been mentioned on other reviews, I've learned my lesson. Spend a little extra and go to Alberta or Manitoba. It's really worth it, you get what you pay for and it's alot less of the bullshit associated with the province of Ontario. It's like comparing Mass to Montana. This was my 3rd trip to Ontario and it has always been fun, like most hunts are, but I'll NEVER go back.
