Deer hunting question...

3 posts in this topic

What is the deal with deer hunting in Ontario? Ive read you need to use a guide if you are a non-res. I talked to a new outfitter owner and he was under the impression that deer hunting was just for the locals in his area. He was given 2 moose tags so I would think he'd be able to do some sort of deer hunt. Any imput on the subject would be great, thanks.

My copy of the 2009-2010 Ontario Hunting regs states on page 52 "non-residents must be accompanied by one licensed guide for each two hunters when hunting deer in the Territorial District of Rainy River. WMUs within the District are 9B, 10,11A and part of 7B and 12B." Basically you are talking everything south of Sabaskong Bay on LOW and on that lattitude over to the east side of the Quetico. You should be able to see a map by going to their HSOforum ontario.ca/hunting

It varies according to the WMU in which you are wanting to hunt. There are areas with no NR deer hunting allowed, some closer to the border which are guide required for NR, and unguided areas for NR. There are plans in the works for changes to the NR deer hunt, but not sure when or if they will actually happen.

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
