    Default Looking to get into small game! (squirrels, rabbit, hare,) & Coyote

    ADVERTISEMENT
    I'm a novice hunter, with just 2 years experience hunting Turkey and Deer (I'm located in SW ontario, GTA). I drank the kool-aid and all I can think about & read about & dream about is being outside, and hunting some game.

    I'm really interested in learning more about small game hunting but don't know where to start.
    Am looking for any advice for areas that come Sept 15. I can hit up and start to learn the craft and from some experienced hunters that are looking to share their knowledge to a young(ish) and passionate new hunter.

    Also interested in coyote. But stoked for Rabbit and Squirrel!
    Any advice is greatly appreciated. I'm great company and always appreciative of the hunting community which has been so helpful in my quest to learn and be a better outdoorsman.

    You will have a tough time find legal and huntable land in your area without travel. Lots GTA'ish people on the forum, hopefully someone can help you out. If your ever up this area (Ottawa), I run hunt mentoring camps (free) all fall for small game and waterfowl. Had a couple of guys come down from Markham last year to learn. Spent the weekend in one of my tents.

    The camps I run are on Public Land (inside Ottawa) which is free to use.

    Thanks! I travel anywhere from 1-6 hours from the GTA for hunting opportunities. I'm often in Ottawa visiting family who live in the city. Thank's for the invite, I will most certainly take you up on that at least one of those sundays! Sounds like a hoot.

    I'm game for travelling pretty far for hunting. I already travel up to 2.5-3 hours for good deer hunting so it's nothing new to me. Obviously closer to home is better, but the closest I've found is about 1.5 hours from the CIty and it's a mix of public and private land. I'm up for some travel
