Waking up early each morning with a freshly brewed cup of coffee in hand, I watched a pair of loons that frequently feed close to our shore. The tranquillity makes me wonder – is this what it was like over 50 years ago? How did my parents feel on that first morning so many years ago? I will always be grateful for the legacy for which I am now the keeper. Because of that, I dedicate this website to my mother, Mary and to the remembrance of my dad, A.J. (Jim) Lecuyer.

My memories of growing up in the tourist camp are both long hours of hard work, as well a lot of fun! The fishing, hunting and professional guiding I have been able to do have given me hours of pleasure and great memories. A lot of good friendship have developed over the years. My children and I look forward to all of our old friends returning each year. I feel very fortunate to be here and hope some day to be able to have my girls Lea and Amanda assume the responsibilities of running the lodge. Our goals for Tru-Tail Lodge have not changed – we want to make sure your experience at Tru-Tail is one you’ll remember for years to come. For this reason, like my parents before, we are constantly updating and expanding our services and facilities for your comfort. We are resolute to provide good service, quality food, good equipment, new motors, clean accommodations, good beds, lots of hot water, trustworthy, reliable and knowledgeable staff, and above all A POSITIVE ATTITUDE. We know that if you are happy, you will refer us to your friends, family and business associates.

We’ve designed this website to tell you a little about Lecuyer’s Tru-Tail Lodge, its facilities and its services. We do not intend this to take the place of personal correspondence but rather to provide you with some answers and to prepare you for your trip with us. For more information and reservations, I would be please to talk with you personally.


whitetail buckLong before the great turnaround in the deer herds south of the Canadian border, this was the area known as the place to go if you were going to bag a big deer with heavy racks. And you know what? It still is! But if you’re looking for a fenced-in hunt like you’d get elsewhere, forget it. This is still and will always be the untamed north country. There are no sections quartered off, no roads every ¼ mile. Just a lot of great forested hunting land.

We are hunting on over one million acres of government land. Over 80 % of our hunts are done on they many islands and peninsulas that are on our lake. To grasp the tremendous mass of area we are hunting, you should first know this. The lake has over one million surface acres of water. Over 14,684 islands, more than 65,000 miles of shore line. Fact is, we need not ever hunt the same island or peninsula more than once. Providing every group that hunts with us, fresh untouched or previously disturbed trophy white tail opportunities. You will not ever see another orange hunting jacket except for your group!..

We take only a limited amount of hunters each year, helping to insure your success!…

Northwestern Ontario has consistently and will continue to produce heavier bodied ( the largest body size in north America ) and large racked deer. They are plentiful here. Racks ranging from 10 to 20 points are not uncommon. Field dressed, these deer are weighing from 225 to 300 lbs. average 255lb. The deer range from 130’s to mid 170’s typical, 165 to 250 non- typical. We recommend that you hunt whitetail with your own crossbow or compound bow. We have a wide selection of broadheads (fixed and expandable) for you to chose from, or you can bring your own. In addition to good hunting clothing, we suggest you bring your own hunting optics to improve accuracy – a good crossbow scope can make all the difference in your harvesting rates.

Consistently, harvesting a good 60% on an average year to a high of 75 % success rate or better on a great year !…

Were are uniquely situated. Lecuyer’s Tru-Tail Lodge is smack dab in the middle of the 6 best hunting zones in Ontario. These zones hold the highest concentration of deer. One of these zones has also been designated bow and muzzle loader exclusively and has been that way for several years. Lots of these deer have never seen man their whole life. Within minutes from the lodge you can be hunting that trophy buck you’ve always dreamt about.

Ontario hosts the second largest population of white tail deer in all of Canada!…

Whitetail Population Graph

We have a mix of terrain – from high rocky, heavily treed ground to low swampy areas and beaver ponds. There are over 1 million acres of boreal forest surrounding undoubtedly the finest forage, cover and protection that make for bigger, older deer. This is the best place for reclusive old bucks to get away from the hunting pressure. This is not a hunt for the weak or timid. This is perhaps the finest, true trophy white tail hunt left in north America. You must be in relatively good shape, as you may expect to walk 2 – 8 miles a day. You may also harvest a timber wolf at no extra charge on this hunt.

Less than 10 % of mature bucks in this area are harvested by hunters!… average age of deer harvested, 4.5 – 7.5 years of age. More mature bucks here, are killed by timber wolves and the winters that are so hard on old bucks!…

Deer and Men

Our hunts run 6 days and are buck only. Lecuyer’s Tru-Tail Lodge employs the finest qualified, most highly skilled guides available anywhere. These men love to hunt and love being in the bush. They respect it, gives back to them employment and food for the long, cold winters. They’ll employ for you all their secrets and techniques – all of the knowledge passed on to them from their fathers, whose only store back then was Mother Nature’s, and for the most part, still is.

We hunt peak rut times only, and after all foliage is off the under brush !…
All hunting areas have been pre scouted, to help insure a successful hunt!…

Here we use the three basic styles of deer hunts . . . tree stands, stalking and slow drives. The methods vary with the area your hunting, size of your party, weapons, weather, time of day, etc. This place has long been known by the few who were not afraid to venture forth as the place to bag BIG deer. Just ask around . . . talk to any old-timers who were here. They will all tell you that you haven’t hunted woods until you’ve been in our bush. Contac us now to get started on your Canadian Trophy Deer Hunt. Put the odds in your favor, be one of the few to bag a true northwoods trophy buck.
