Hi guys. Made it Ottawa and am more or less settled in now. (Still don't have the web at home).
LOTS of deer around here - not really a suprise as it looks like perfect whitetail habitat: nothing but cornfields, hay fields, pasture and bush. Hunting in my immediate area (West Carelton) looks like a shot-gun only affair as it's fairly populated rural area.
I won't get the chance this year, as my wedding is 12 Oct in Halifax. (You know you have a good woman when not only does she help build your tree stand, but also suggests a fall wedding so we can stay a few weeks afterward and go hunting for a honeymoon).
The local area outdoor show is this weekend in Carp, that should point me in the right direction. Plus I've seen lots of ads for Ont Hunter Safety courses around. It looks like a pretty hunter-friendly area; this should be a good posting.
