Additional Turkey Hunting Opportunities for Ontario Hunters
Ontario is giving hunters more opportunities to hunt wild turkey in southern Ontario.
A new fall wild turkey season is now in place in specific Wildlife Management Units in southeastern and southwestern Ontario. The new fall season allows hunters to take one bird from October 14 to 26 during 2008.
The spring wild turkey season was also recently expanded on St. Joseph Island and in the Bracebridge and Minden areas. Wild turkey populations have rebounded and are healthy nearly 25 years after being reintroduced in the province. Since 1984, Ontario has worked with partners, including the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) and the National Wild Turkey Federation, to recover populations of this bird.
