McGuinty Government Committed To Sustainable Elk Population
Ontario is extending its elk hunt in the Bancroft area from one week to two weeks this year, running from September 17 to 30.
Due to the successful restoration efforts of the Ontario government and its partners, elk have made a comeback in the province. The elk population is particularly strong in the Bancroft region, which last year supported the first elk hunt in Ontario since elk were reintroduced more than 10 years ago.
The extended hunt will help manage the population in the Bancroft area while continuing to ensure a long-term, sustainable elk population.
