If you hear gunshots today, do not be alarmed. It is opening day for the wild turkey hunt in our region.
To hunt wild turkey in Ontario, you require both a small game license and a special wild turkey license. First timers must also complete a Wild Turkey Hunter Course.
Licensed hunters are allowed to attempt to bag a bird from half an hour before dawn to 7 o’clock at night. The wild turkey hunt ends on May 31st. Visit the Ministry of Natural Resources website for more info.
