    Default No hunting signs on my goose hunting spots.

    Went for a boat ride at my cottage and saw new signs on some islands I hunted on before . I would like to find out if someone is playing ( stay away from here ) illegally . Or have I been wrong all this time. Some of these so called islands are about two times the size of my pickup truck. and are result of the left over parts of the making of the Trent water way. Who can I ask if I`m screwed or not.

    I know MNR has Crown Land maps on line.

    https://www.ontario.ca/page/crown-land-use-policy-atlas

    The old Provincial Series Topo Maps used to ID Crown and Private land as well. You have to watch though they are not 100 percent accurate, but they both give you a really good idea and give you grounds for an argument.

    Good luck.

    The maps might help.

    If the islands were created when the Trent Severn was created, it may in fact be privately owned, as many areas have title that extends under the waterway, and in fact encompass the waterway as well.
    "Camo" is perfectly acceptable as a favorite colour.

    Although I have many times seen people put signs on property they did not own. Had a fella putting signs on a property I had access to and I got permission from the land owner in writing to remove the signs. I have also seen chains across crown land roads and told the MNR and the MNR removed them.

    Sorry but my question would be, 'why did you hunt them before, if you had not checked to see if you could, or who owned them'?

    Correct me if I am wrong but if land is unmarked and not be used for anything you can use it. Probably a little more to the law than that but it's close. I can show you land around here that you would swear is crown and it isn't I can also show you crown but you would probably think it's private. I know of some land that members on here in the past hunted thinking it was crown and it wasn't.

    Where,generally,is your cottage and these small islands? Are you island hopping for small game or waterfowling?

    These island are really small . One would not fit my truck parked on it. I saw others hunting off them and honestly didn`t think any one would own them. Bad on my part I know. We have been hunting there for 15 years. Strictly waterfowl hunting. We hunt about 4 times during the season. It`s in the Kawartha lakes and part of the Trent water way.

    Considering he put this thread in the waterfowl section and in the title he referenced it as his goose hunting spot I think is self explanatory................
    I love fishing but REALLY it is just a way to pass time until hunting season!!!!
