Timber Wolf Hunting Onterio

8 posts in this topic

Hey Guys, I just purchased a Onterio small games license and a Wolf Seal. Has anyone here hunted wolves before. I have a friend that lives on Lac La Croix and that is where I plan on hunting. We may try baiting and posting and then cruising the lakes via snowmobile. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I would try using those calls, but I don't have any of them. Does anyone on the forum have some to borrow or rent. I live near International Falls. Thanks for the help

calls are fairly cheap for hand calls and thats what id try to carry around up there. 10 20 bucks at cabelas. i did find some at a gas station up that way one time for 3 bucks so id try to get your own and give it some practice.

I don't know if this is legal or not in Canada. I have heard of people dragging a road killed deer out to the middle of a lake, on the ice of course, and sitting back and watching it for a couple of days. Mister Wolf will show up for a free meal. cool.gifcool.gif

To bait wolves is legal in Ontario and it's what I do to catch mine in snares but have hunted them over bait too with success but often they prefer to come only into the open under the cover of darkness and it's illegal to shoot here then .

Usually we run them with radio collared hounds and trying to get ahead of the dogs with snowmachines but like anything being run by hounds, wolves have a tendancy to run thick cover and it's getting a decent shot that is the hard part .I've tried calling and I am sure it will work but can't claim any success because I don't have the time in doing it much .

I have always found timbers to be a far travelling critter that moves around in a large territory . Even at a bait pile they only hang around for so long before leaving and your best bait by far is beaver .

The squawking of ravens at a baitpile really draws the foxes and wolves in but it's keeping enough bait at the pile with ravens around that can become a difficulty too . I have a system that works to trap wolves consistently around baitpiles but getting a clean shot is a whole other story .

Hey Trapper, Thanks for the info, We have been getting beavers from a local trapper near La Croix. My partner usually drills an ice hole and lets the beaver freeze half way in the water so something can't just grab and run with it. Trapper do you think the best bet would be baiting or cruising with the sleds looking for them. What is you system that works over bait. Here is my email address if you would rather email me. caseywave11@hotmail.com. This would be greatly appreciated.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.

      Here's a couple pictures of one of the 14' boats I redid, a 25hp will be plenty of motor for a 12' boat.  The14' bat in the pictures with the additional weight from the wood would go 26mph with just me in the boat.  As you can se  left the compartment open for the gas tank, so I could monitor the level and so I could breathe better. Send me a message if you have questions.  It's really a fun project to work on these old boats.

      Do you have any pics of the process or finished product by any chance?
    • HugeHogChaser
      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.
