Turkey hunt

With the 2014 spring wild turkey season opening April 25 in Ontario and Québec, authorities are reminding hunters to observe the law, and the rules of common sense.

The reintroduction of wild turkeys to Ontario in the late 1980’s has led to the subsequent growth of turkey populations.

The spring wild turkey hunt has become very popular over the years, so has the potential for abuse of both the resource and the private land upon which most hunting takes place, notes the Ontario Conservation Officers Association.

Fortunately, a combination of mandatory turkey hunter education program, responsible hunters, and active enforcement efforts by Conservation Officers (CO’s) has resulted in many seasons of safe hunts.

Anyone with information about a natural resources or public safety related violation is encouraged to call the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources violation reporting line at 1-877-TIPS-MNR (847-7667), contact their local CO directly, or call Crime Stoppers at 1800-222-TIPS (8477).

For more information about natural resources regulations and enforcement, visit the OCOA website at www.ocoa.ca, or contact your local Conservation Officer.
