Changes to Reporting Laws For the first time this year, every hunter who receives a tag must complete a hunt report even if they did not fill their tag. This is mandatory and there are serious penalties for forgetting to report or reporting false information. Every hunter needs to educate themselves to make sure they’re not penalized. What are the new Rules? Starting this year, every hunter issued a tag for moose, elk, deer, bear, wild turkey, and wolf/coyote must complete a hunter’s report unless you live in an area where a tag is not required (like coyote in parts of southern Ontario). Even if your hunt isn’t successful, you still have to report it. If you never make it out to hunt, you still need to report it. The new online licensing [...]
Hunting season is here. While we are all eager to get into the bush, it is important to be prepared. Accidents happen even to the most seasoned hunter. A good survival kit could make all the difference in an emergency situation. Even if the hunt goes off without a hitch, there are still certain supplies that need to be brought along. We’ve split the “Must-Have Bush Kit” suggestions into a couple of categories: First Aid, Survival gear, and Hunter’s Kit. First Aid Kit: This element of the survival kit is a must. To be properly prepared for the type of accidents that can occur in the bush, it’s important to have more than a few band aids in your pack. First Aid Kits vary in size and contents. Here are a few suggestions for [...]
Deer Food Plot Basics Food plots are normally divided into two categories: kill plots and feeding plots. We’re here to help you decide what options are best for you and your land. How big should my food plot be? The size of your plots will be determined by several factors: The amount of land available, the type of terrain outside the boundaries of your property, the number of deer likely to be drawn to the food plot, and the purpose of your plot. Kill plots are normally smaller than feeding plots as they will be expected to sustain the deer for shorter periods of time. In a kill plot, all areas must be visible from a single point. Feeding plots are liable to see heavier use and therefore should be larger. Kill plots are normally [...]
Bass Season is finally here! We’ve left some tips, tricks and important information below to help you bring home the bass. Locations When deciding where to set up for the day, keep some of the following in mind: Bass love shallow, warm water with lots of plant life in it. They prefer still or slow-moving water which is why you’ll find them in lakes more often than in streams or rivers, and bass is one of the most cover seeking fish species around. They’re always looking for a good place to hole up - under submerged logs or brush. This means habitats like Lake Erie are ideal for bass. You also find lots of fish on Lake Simcoe or up north on Eagle Lake. Fishing Times The best time for bass fishing is early morning [...]
