    Default Simcoe county and the OFAH

    I understand a OFAH membership is required to hunt simcoe county forests.
    If it is because insurance is required by the county then why would being a member of the CSSA also not qualify?
    unlike the OFAH coverage the CSSA is not third party.
    looks like a good gig for the OFAH.

    That's a good question if it's all about insurance,but,I think it's much more than that. That's a question for The Simcoe County Forest executive and the OFAH. Are you saying that Simcoe County Forest is open to OFAH members only because they're insured? Somehow,I doubt that.

    Ofah insurance is a joke, it's only ever touched after all other sources of coverage are exhausted. It's "excess" insurance coverage.

    It's likely the county relies on input and help from ohaf and they see it as good faith that if you hunt it you should contribute, but I'm just talking out my @$$ and have no idea the real reason.

    I do know ofah insurance is not all it's advertised to be.

    The OFAH probably convinced local counsel to allow them to monitor the forest with regards to insurance. That way local counsel doesn't have to do anything,

    EX.....OFAH member? good you have insurance, you can stay and hunt......Not a member, we can't be expected to find out if you do have the right or even enough insurance, get OFAH insurance or stay out...

    Probably something like that... not right but it makes it easy to enforce.

    Wonder how they would enforce this? Would a provincial C.O. want to bother with a local municipal matter? Would a county employ be authorized to ask a member of the public for a OFAH membership?
    Make sure you have finished speaking before your audience has finished listening.

    I asked this question, didn't get a clear answer. OFAH has some influence, I guess this way they can get more members.
    Bunch of BS.

    It's on the OFAH website in bold letters.
    Membership required to hunt Simcoe county forests.
    I also noticed some pheasant preserves only allow hunting by OFAH members only.
    What gives?

    It almost looks like landowners are trying to mitigate any liability if someone gets injured. I can't see what difference it would make. Where fees are being charged for entry to private property,the owners are on the hook no matter how many "Use at own risk" signs they put up.

    I lived there for 8 years in Tiny Twp.
    The insurance issue started with a mistaken-for-deer shooting during the shotgun hunt that resulted in a fatality.
    I always thought it was a good idea, because it eliminated a lot of the city "yahoos".

    It also means that in order to use the public forests you have to be ponying up to support wildlife. Which I agree with, so whatever the reason, more membership money means stronger representation for our interests and bigger wildlife initiatives.

    Makes sense to me.
