Notice re: hunting

Be aware of where and when hunting takes place.


Notice to users of conservation areas, conservation lands, and trails

The Ausable Bayfield Conservation Authority (ABCA) wishes to remind property users that ABCA properties are multi-use and some permit hunting through a Conservation Permit system.  (Hunters must have a Conservation Permit for hunting on conservation lands where hunting is permitted with that permit).

ABCA urges property users to be aware of hunting seasons that may be open during their visits.

Property users may refer to the Ontario Hunting Regulations Summary, for the appropriate year.

This summary is developed by the Ontario Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry:

Individuals utilizing properties owned and/or managed by ABCA, are urged to visit the ABCA website to determine the permitted and prohibited uses for the properties that they may be interested in visiting. 

ABCA urges individuals, who wish to visit during hunting seasons, to visit one of the conservation areas where hunting is not permitted. 

If users choose to visit one of the properties where hunting is permitted, please exercise caution and take safety measures such as wearing bright colours; visiting the properties only during daylight hours; keeping your pet on a leash; and other appropriate safety measures for your activity.

As a reminder, off-road vehicles such as all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) and dirt bikes are prohibited on all ABCA properties and all properties managed by ABCA.
