    The letter of the law YES. You have in fact been using a DANGEROUS and PROHIBITED WEAPON to commit ASSAULT WITH INTENT TO CAUSE BODILY HARM.
    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.

    "Alternatively, how fast would the cops get called?"

    If it's most parts of Toronto, give it 5 mins.....

    If it's North Rexdale where I grew up, the neighbours will think it's just another "drive by shooting" and just dismiss it as another day in the neighbourhood...........just kidding.

    Bottom line, you can't discharge any firearm, bow or pellet gun w/o running the risk of a neighbour being concerned and calling the police. And if that happens, you'll be wasting a lot of your time being questioned. It's not worth it.
    Make something idiot proof and someone will make a better idiot.......

    We aren't even discussing the fact if you are in your legal rights to hunt a species without using a firearm, how long it would take for the OSPCA to come knocking on your door. One has to remember what happened to Dong Nguyen when he killed those raccoons in his backyard. While using a shovel probably wasn't the wisest of moves, I don't think it would have mattered what he used to dispatch those animals, he would have gotten a visit regardless.

    For whats its worth and I am not chiming in specifically to the legality or illegality (speak with the right authority).

    In my neck of the woods there is archery hunting, yet a no discharge. Bows do not automatically fall under no discharge (check your muni)

    I also know that if one has problems with nuisences such as Raccons, one must pay a "relocator" somewhere between $400-$600.
    I also know said relocator can only move them up to 1km away, making my $600 problem, my neighbors $600 problem the next night.

    So, if I were inclined to hunt racoons in my neck of the woods, Id look at the above and conclude its not a good idea. Further if I was inclined to hunt squirrels that live in the city, I'd wonder why, as I personally wouldnt want to eat them.

    afaik, Toronto has the same/similiar by-laws with respect to nuisances.

    Archery I'm sure does not fall under no-discharge in TO, else Im sure this place, a place I used to go as a wee child carrying my bow (unencased) to on the TTC is still open.
    http://www.archerytoronto.ca/Toronto-Archery-Range.html

    So if it were me.
    Given one can still use the range at the science center, Id conlude bows are not covered by the no discharge.

    However, I would not hunt even if the regs say theres seasons within the wmu for the above reasons and more.
    I guess is in theory if bows are ok within the city, one might try to hunt WTs in the Don Valley.

    Not a good idea.

    I've seen a few fine WT's in Don Valley and have often wondered as to whether they can be hunted. One got hit by a car up on Lawrence and DVP.

    Even if legal, I'd think twice about getting one though - imagine dragging it up to the parking lot , kids shouting "mommy, mommy, look, he killed Bambi"

    on the other hand, might be a nice lesson for cityfolk and would help thin out the herd.

    lastly, I don't know about the meat - they use pesticides on those lawns.

    Well i believe there are several factors including how many acres you have and usually you need twenty to shoot in a residential area. Also in your bylaw a bow could be classed as a firearm it is in other towns like vaughan woodbridge
