is a drive-in lodge at Minaki, 25 miles north of Kenora, Ontario. The deer in our area are very large-bodied & fast-growing. Bucks that score in the 140's are fairly common.

We hunt primarily from comfortable 2-man tree stands with lots of room for the hunter when waiting for that trophy buck. Our stand sites are extensively scouted and located within 3 miles of the lodge; you don't have to travel far for your buck. We limit our deer hunters to a maximum of 6 per week to provide you with the best opportunities of success. Our fully-guided trophy deer hunts can either be American Plan or Housekeeping Packages.
