    If you do want a rifle up to .275 is allowed one thing that may open doors for you ask farmers to hunt coyotes, that may lead to other opportunities for ranges they are several Guelph rod and Gun , Galt's sportsmen , Elmira rod and gun Bridgeport to name a few . Search them out and see if they are taking membership. Good luck

    Congratulation on taking the first step into a whole new world. As it's been stated "we all crawled before we walked" so don't be in a rush as patience is a hunters most valuable asset. So being in the KW area you are within driving distance to many areas to hunt and the most versatile gun as already stated would be a shotgun. I would go with a 12 ga. pump and if you get one with 3 barrels all the better. Why ? 12 ga. ammo is available and affordable and pumps are easy to shoot and maintain not to mention the different types of game you can hunt with them.
    Good Luck & Good Hunting !

    Great place to start OFAH as most clubs are affiliated with them such as the Long Point Fish & Game Club or the Long Point Waterfowlers Assoc. .

    First off, welcome. I would considering joining the OFAH for the liability insurance, as for the firearm I would look at a shotgun over rifle in the beginning, Mossberg use to offer the 500 in 2 barrel camo combo (20ga.) reg barrel for turkey, waterfowl, small game, upland and the slug barrel for deer
    Good luck and be safe!

    Thanks

None of my friends do it and donít wanna do it alone when I have no clue what Iím doing yet haha!

    The Mossberg 500 has taken over from Remington's 870 since their demise. Good strong gun, affordable and can be dressed up with after market goodies but I still recommend 12 gauge instead of 20 gauge due to price, types and availability of ammo.
    Good Luck & Good Hunting !

    The savage would be just fine. There is plenty of open deer rifle within an hour to two hours of Kitchener so you can certainly rifle hunt if you wish to. The shotgun isnít terrible advice if you want to hunt close to home. A combo would work well. Although Iím not a creedmore fan or shooter, a 6.5 creedmore is prettt available, had enough thump for deer, and still allows
    You to hunt coyote in the southern districts. I live north east of you. If I plan well, spend some time researching, and have plenty of permission, Iím able to hunt a gun season for 4 weeks total with only 1week of that up north. Lots of opportunity nearby, a chance to hunt rifle season, and yes a muzzle loader does open up an extra week for you! Unfortunately I canít add anyone to the mix at this time, but there is a lot of opportunity in the region and a motivated guy will do alright after a few seasons of boot leather and door knocking!
