Default Ontario Deer

Hi Folks,

I am thinking about going to Ontario next fall to do some deer hunting - in the Dryden area. I have a couple of questions.

1. How is the deer population there?
2. Is it hard to find land to hunt (for a non-resident)?
3. Are guides required in this area or can non-res hunt on there own?

Thanks for the info . . . Rob

Theoreticaly there aren't Whitetails north of the French River, and you will be north of there. Someone mentioned on another thread there are whitetails in the Red lake area which is due north of Dryden. There is the Loring herd south of Nipising, so I guess there aren't any hard and fast rules.

I hope you don't need guides. I doubt it's difficult to find land to hunt, but then Ontario can be deceptive that way with lots of private ownership anywhere near where people.

Well, hopefuly, having spread the ignorance around someone will now feel required to come in and correct me, and you will get your answer.

Search on the Ontario ministry of natural resource. You should find somone willing to answer your questions.

If you are planing on bringing guns vs say a bow, better start planing that now. http://www.cfc-ccaf.gc.ca/

Of course Moose are a deer, and they are definetly in that area.

Ossage; some of biggest deer yards in Ontario are in the Kenora area. The population drops off north of the French but starts up again the other side of Lake Superior.
As global temperatures rise they are spreading into areas that they didn't previously inhabit. When this happens it's the moose that dies off.

Why all the interest in the Dryden / N. W. Ont. area, wouldn't be because of that pic from the poached deer, would it.

That is what I was thinking.
