Hunting

Air Ivanhoe offers a variety of big game and small game hunting including moose, bear, wolf and smaller game like waterfowl, grouse, and rabbits.  Bear hunting in Ontario is open during the spring and fall seasons.  All other animals in our area have open season in the fall.

Many of our guests will do a combination fishing / hunting adventure.  Many of our groups are mixed groups, where one guy wants to hunt, two want to to fish, and the fourth wants to ride his ATV / UTV on a huge variety of gravel logging trails.

  • Fin Feather and Fur Adventures

    rates wolfOne of our favorite fall adventures includes bears, wolves, grouse, waterfowl, and fishing.  The middle of September (Sept 15 starting) is a really interesting timeframe that appeals to many outdoorsmen looking for a huge variety of adventures that are possible during the same time.  We offer a 1 week bear hunting / wolf hunting combination trip where guests will either fish or hunt small game or waterfowl in the mornings (as well as after their big game hunts), and hunt wolf and bear with us in the fall.  We recommend one week at the minimum for all of our hunting trips (especially so for this big of a variety of animals and adventures).


    We would recommend each hunter bringing a high power rifle, shotgun, and 22 to challenge himself when chasing grouse.  A few rods from lightweight perch and walleye to medium heavy for big pike would be ideal.  Temperatures are generally in the mid 70s (21 Celsius) during the days and 50’s in the evenings.  We have usually had one good frost by this time meaning that most of the mosquitos and black flies will be gone by this point.  It’s just a lovely time of the year with changing colours of leaves, mild temperatures, and more adventures than most outdoorsmen can dream of easily within your grasp with us at Air Ivanhoe.
