Whitetail Deer Hunt

Whitetail Deer

We are in the heart of Trophy Whitetail Deer Country on the shores of Wabigoon Lake in Dryden, Ontario. Serious whitetail hunters will recognize Dryden as home of the Ontario record whitetail deer which scored 223 gross, 199 7/8 net green score!

The Whitetail Bucks in our area are large bodied with heavy racks. Our hunters have harvested Bucks that weighed in at 275 lbs dressed with racks scoring 176 B&C. Bucks harvested from our lodge have typically scored from 120 B&C to 176 B&C.

The area has large tracts of Crown Land open to deer hunting, with ongoing logging activity creating new prime habitant and providing new areas to scout and hunt each year. The Crown Land closest to camp is located in Wildlife Management Unit (WMU) 5 and 8. Please note that non-residents of Ontario are only permitted to hunt WMU 8.

At camp we have a large shop with an overhead hoist available to guests for use in skinning the animal. A walk-in cooler is provided for hanging the meat, and game processing tables as well as several on-site freezers are also provided. If guests desire, there are local options for butchers to process your game, either on or off-site.
