Nighthawk Services

It is our priority to provide you with a quality black bear hunting experience. You will receive personal friendly service to meet your bear hunting needs.

We start baiting our sites early to make sure that the bears include them in there feeding routine. The sites are monitored with game cameras to determine how many and the size and sex of the bears visiting the site. As a rule there are multiple bears visiting each site.

Tree Stands

Most of our bait sites are portable ladder stands set up for a twenty yard shot. We also have a selection of hanging stands and pop up blinds for your use. Of course if you wish to bring you own equipment we will be happy to accommodate you.
Nighthawk Accommodations
We have one cabin located on our home property on Reid Lake that can accommodate up to four hunters in bunk beds. The cabin has a fully equipped kitchen including fridge, stove, microwave, coffee maker and all utensils. There is a propane BBQ on the deck for your grilling pleasure. The cabin has a sink and toilet facility. Shower is located in another building.

We also set up a remote outpost tent camp for some hunts. It sleeps four on cots, has a fully equipped kitchen, propane BBQ. It has an outhouse and separate shower facility.

Fishing on Reid Lake
Included in your hunt is a boat and motor with unlimited gas. Be sure to bring your favorite rod and reel to take on the Northern Pike and Walleye found on your doorstep in Reid Lake.
Other Services
We will help retrieve, process and freeze your bear.
We provide transportation to the bait sites. Some clients prefer to use their own vehicles some leave right from camp on their ATV’s.

About Us

We are located on Highway 101 about half way between Matheson and Timmins. For some hunts you will be staying at a cabin at our home property on beautiful Reid Lake. The cabin holds a maximum of four hunters. For other hunts we set up a remote outpost camp consisting of a huge completely equipped outfitter tent, shower room and outhouse. Your group will be the only group being guided for the duration of your stay. This ensures quality personal service to meet your needs.
