Hi, I'm Texas MacDonald a local guide & outfitter specializing in black bear hunting which was formed in 1972.  I'm located about 40 miles west of Sudbury just off Hwy 17 or 300 miles North West of Toronto or 135 miles East of Sault Ste. Marie (Sault Michigan) on Hwy. 17. Close to the Espanola turn off at hwy 6 and hwy 17.

Since 1972 our very high success rate for black bear hunting is between 75% - 100%. In 2014 there was agian a Spring hunt but only for Ontario Residents and the results are there were 847 hunters in the spring season 193 were succesful or 22.8% Provincial average, I had 6 hunters and got 5 bear or 83.3%, I took out 0.7% of the hunters in ontario and got 2.6% of the bears harvested. Its there in the numbers that you are 4 times more likely to get a bear hunting with me. Let me know if you are interested for the spring of 2015 starting may 16th. Its booking up fast.

Because some of the lodge owners are away for the winter months, I am responsible for bookings and payment while they are away, all payments are addressed to me Texas Mac Donald. I'll make sure that the right money and papers go to the right places, This way I can set up hunts well in advance, prevent overcrowding and have a better success rate.

, If you have not hunted with Texas before I am offering a 10% discount for groups of 6 or more. My bear hunting areas at the present time cover parts of 12 townships for an area of over 100,000 acres. Some of this is State land and some is private. I am the only outfitter that can take non-residents out in this area.

You may also hunt Timber Wolf or Coyote starting Sept 15th during Bear Season with the purchase of a non-resident small game license the $118.11 and a $269.58 wolf tag. No additional charge for guiding service, (possible changes in 2015)

I make use of all the local resources to the clients best advantage, whatever you want I'll do my best to provide, so you will have a really great time.

Additional references available upon request. (some are on page 4) any other information you might need just ask, and I'll do the best that I can to make your hunt one to remember.

Come on up & lets do some hunting. Texas MacDonald
