After extensive consultation with the public, park users and other stakeholders, the Ontario government has made changes to the hunting seasons in Kawartha Highlands Signature Site Park.

Balancing both the interests of the environment and traditional recreational usage in Ontario Parks, the amendments to the hunting rules for the park are:

  • * Hunting will be prohibited from the Friday before Victoria Day to August 31 to minimize potential conflicts with other park users.
  • * Hunting will be permitted from September 1 to the Thursday before Victoria Day for most of the game species that may be hunted outside of the park, with some exceptions.
