    Okay - there's another poor question. I don't use them to hunt or fish. But I use them a lot in winter for scouting. Is it really relevant what a showshoe enthusiast uses his snowshoes for?

    Werner,
    Is scouting not part of the preparation stages of hunting and fishing?

    Never used them I just think light thoughts and hope I stay on top lol. Living in the GTA there is never really a time that they are needed.

    North is definitely a different story and would be considered a useful tool.

    I use snowshoes to hunt, fish and work.
    Reminds me to put them in the truck.

    I'm in the same boat, luckily there's no need yet!

    How is it one careless cigarette can cause a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to light a campfire?

    I picked up a nice pair from sail a few years back and use them a few times a season. Usually come Christmas all my gear went away for hibernation. Now with the snow shoes I get out and try for hares up north. It’s quite the work out. Prolongs my season a bit too. Win-win.

    When I was a teen I use to go cross country skiing in NB looking for rabbits. I have used snow shoes when I lived in Miramichi NB and we had deep snow. Here in Eastern Ontario and as far as Mattawa I have rarely seen snow that I needed snowshoes. Generally there is not enough snow to need them or there is a good enough crust that it will hold my weight.

    Like Werner said, kind of a poorly worked question. I own a few pair and use them primarily for walking the dogs 2-3 times a day in the winter . Break a 2km trail around the hay field and keep it open for the winter.

    Never used them for hunting in all the years we've lived here. Truth is, very rarely do we have deep snow down for hunting season in Nov. I can only remember twice in 20 yrs that it was too deep to use the ATVs and we resorted to walking.
