    Default Hunting and the new ON stay home policy

    Interesting if hunting will be considered an exercise during the new stay home orders?

    I have a feeling it will depend how far you are from home when they stop you. I'm sure it will be tested in court eventually.

    From the Ontario Public Health...No mention of fishing or hunting but judging from what I see below we should be fine to fish and hunt.

    I think as long as you're wearing one of those sports head bands your good to go. Because everyone who see's a guy wearing one thinks he's doing some kind of activity to make him sweat. LoL

    As long as Canadian Tire lists 'Hunting and Fishing' stuff on their essential items list to buy during the lockdown, it must be OK. LoL.

    Essential items are defined as:
    • food and beverages;
    • food preparation products; **
    • personal care products such as soap and dental care products;
    • health-related products such as prescription drugs and vitamins;
    • mobility or assistive devices;
    • baby and child-care accessories such as diapers and formula;
    • household cleaning products, safety devices, batteries and lightbulbs;
    • outdoor winter apparel such as jackets and boots;**
    • personal protective equipment for the workplace;
    • pet food and supplies;
    • postage stamps;
    • cellphones and cellphone accessories;**
    • parts and supplies for all types of motor vehicles and watercraft;
    • major household appliances; **
    • hunting, fishing and trapping supplies;**
    • tools and hardware;
    • materials for home maintenance, repair or construction; and
    • property maintenance products.

    ODD released a statement last night that there will be no impact to hunting or fishing (except rule of 5 for outdoor gatherings). Not sure about today and any change to that

    I went through the new things like crazy, thought they impacted child care but they do not explicitly ban in home, just school based child care.

    There does not seem to be that many changes except limiting hours of some stores and increasing mandates on masks. It is a "stay at home order" that does not tell you to stay at home as the number of exceptions is vast. Parks are not closed, nor are outdoor rinks, as long as social distancing and or masks are used, if people do not abide by this than these places can be closed. Many parts and trails have been used as a meet up spot for many families, honestly surprised they are not closed. Gun ranges and rod and gun club operated ranges are not closed either.

    This is not as harsh as March, but I live in an area that has almost no cases and we are locked down the same as TO, seems like a kick in the teeth for doing everything right all along.
