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.

      No idea the brand, it's an 8 inch, it's in good shape needs a sharpening I would imagine.  Haven't used it for a couple years

      Hey guys heading up to the canadian side in a few weeks just wondering when fishing over rocks what works better 1/4 or 3/8 for jigs to stay out of the rocks?

      7/20 day 6 Today was was the feast day. Spending most of the day hanging on shore visiting and eating the weeks catch of fish for lunch and burgers and salads for supper.  Some water time for the kids and the wife.  Avas' parents also drive up to spend the evening around the fire.  It was quite the family affair.   Fishing today was targeted towards finding the big panfish for my folks to catch.  This plan was an utter failure.  Both boats out this evening and no one could find the panfish!  Frustrating to say the least. I decided late in the evening to go back after walleyes to try and put the folks on some fish.  I ended up boating only 1 northern 20", Dad landed a 18", 17", and 14" walleye, while mom boated a 14" walleye, and 2, 8" bluegills.  Not bad for a fall back plan the last hour and a half.   7/21 day 7   Today was a day to say goodby to My folks and the borther and sister inlaw.  As well as to start to sad action of packing up and being ready for our trip back home early the next morning. Our late afternoon was interupted by a nice strong thunderstorm that would rattle cabins, dump a ton rain, and light a couple of trees on fire around the lake from lightning strikes!  Also leaving us without power for 7 hrs.  It was a good storm. With the kids off to a movie, and the in laws on shore with boat.  It was just me off to lake for one last fishing outing after the storm.  With only a little over an hour fish i hit our standard walleye spot.  With old faithful providing me with two small walleyes 12" and 14".  The darkness came and fishing for the week was over.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.
