Ontario farmer/landowner tag
How exactly does this work? I own 66 acres so it looks like I can apply. Is it strictly for the controlled hunts listed on the application of can I get one for bow hunting? Can the tag only be used on my property? I understand they are cheaper than a regular deer license/tag but I'm not really clear if I need my license and then can apply for one of these tags also?
I know I'm too late for this year but just wondering for next.

There is more to it than just being a landowner...you have to be a registered farmer...here is the application form:

As long as you own 50 acres or more you are eligble for a landowners tag, you dont have to be a farmer. As stated on the application from the MNR

Nope - Just being a landowner qualifies you..... Don't need to be a farmer.

Ok just to clear the water abit there are two things being talked about here. As a farmer you can purchase a farm tag which is a kill tag. It is only good for the township that your farm is located in. Only the person or persons named on the property deed can purchase one of these. These tags are $26 vs a regular deer kill tag at $45. Now as a property owner you are also entiled to a controlled hunt validation tag which is not a kill tag but a validation tag that allows you to take part in the controlled hunt. To automatically qualify you must own at least 50acres. Any imediate family member qualifies. To get in on the controlled hunt applications must be in by October 1 but a farmers kill tag can be bought any time and must be bought at a service center.

Our tags for 92D were free. For either sex, during muzzleloader first week. Also got a buck bow tag for same area for the farmers tag price.

The tag you have for the muzzleloader season is an endorsement that allows you to partake in the hunt but is not a tag to place on the deer when harvested. These are free. The kill tag which is affixed on the deer after harvest is bought as a regular tag or as stated eairler as a farmers tag which can be used during all seasons ( with the proper equipment during the correct season) as long as its in the farm propertys township
