  • Grouse Hunting:

    In Ontario there are three species of grouse. There is the Ruffed Grouse and the Spruce Grouse, which inhabit most areas of Ontario. Then in the farthest western areas of Northwestern Ontario is the Sharptail Grouse, which is more common on the prairies and not really at home in the dense bush of Ontario but they are a few of them. Ruffed Grouse is by far the most common and 95% of grouse you will see in the Wabigoon Lake area are Ruffed Grouse.

    Surrounding Merkel's Camp are hundreds of miles of ATV trails, old logging road, game animal trails and hiking trails. The bush is just peppered with Ruffed Grouse and on a sunny fall afternoon you will see hoards of them. Many of our guests choose a fishing / grouse hunting combination package and spend half the week taking advantage of the awesome Muskie and Smallmouth Bass fishing and spend the rest of their time enjoying the clean fall area and exploring the many trails where Grouse are plentiful. Merkel's Camp has been providing fishing/ Grouse hunting packages since 1963 and is one of the original outfitters in this area.
