Cranes can be hunted sustainably
Ontario OUT of DOORS » Hunting
by Steve Galea
1M ago
Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECC) determined that sandhill cranes could be hunted sustainably in Ontario. A similar proposal is also being considered for Quebec. The proposal says, “A sandhill crane hunting season would provide a new harvesting opportunity for hunters in Ontario, and an additional tool to help alleviate crop damage problems caused by cranes.” The introduction of the sandhill crane hunting season has been the subject of repeated requests from hunting and agricultural organizations, such as the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH), in Ontario since 2003.

Training dogs with place boards
Ontario OUT of DOORS » Hunting
by Jeff Kavanagh
3M ago
Being a gun dog guy for most of my life, I seldom find things more enjoyable than experiencing the partnership of hunting with a well-trained bird dog in the field. There’s immense satisfaction in handling a lab with whistle commands and hand signals on a blind retrieve as I guide it to a duck. Or to be in the uplands gingerly stepping around a setter intensely locked on point to a woodcock or grouse. These are the moments I live for when the leaves start to change colour. Thankfully, things don’t stop for me at the end of the season, as there is always more dog training to complete. This yea ..read more
