Wolf Hunting


Mystical and elusive, wolves melt into the forest like ghosts forever haunting the minds of their prey. They travel through the forest in silence working as a team with an intelligence man does not understand and is sometimes unappreciated. A single Wolf will chase prey into an ambush area where the rest of the pack is waiting. Hunting a Wolf will take all your patience and hunting skills as they are truly the most prestigious game available. Hunting a top predator is a challenge you will never forget.

Hunting down live prey takes a lot of energy so wolves are also opportunists. They can smell blood from many miles away and frequently visit our baiting stands for an easy meal so we know where they are. The wolf hunt is much more intricate than that. Outsmarting wolves means having an outfitter that knows their strategy and scouts out what game trails they are using. In the winter Wolves like to chase their prey out into the open on frozen lakes and then constantly harass the animal until it's exhausted and easy to take down. Knowing where the deer and moose are moving and knowing where the wolves' favorite places to ambush is key to placement of the hunting stands. Not knowing means disappointment.

Merkel's Camp has been providing fishing/ Wolf hunting packages since 1963 and is one of the original outfitters in this area. Wolf hunting has been a family tradition for almost 50 years at Merkel's Camp. Terry grew up learning all his skills from his grandfather and trapper friends, and has become one of the top wolf hunting outfitters in Ontario. To add to your success, we limit the number of hunters to make sure you have excellent service and a successful hunt. Our stands are pre-baited and active upon your arrival or you can hunt the prime ambush areas.
