    Default Public Pheasant Hunting Land in Southern Ontario

    Hey everyone. I know the season is over but im curious for next season. Are there any areas of public land in southern Ontario, specifically the Niagara or Norfolk-Haldimand regions where i am able to hunt pheasant? Any information you could provide would be much appreciated.

    Norfolk County runs a good pheasant release program, for which you need to buy a pheasant & rabbit licence from the county. There is info on the county website including the locations of properties where they release birds.

    You'd probably be wasting your time looking for public land pheasants in Niagara, but there are a couple of private game farms. My old club (Port Colborne Conservation Club) was one of the last in the area that used to purchase and release birds on Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority lands. The Thorold Legion Conservation Club might still be doing it. There are (or as least used to be when I lived down there) a few pockets left of wild (feral) pheasants on private lands, but those seemed to get fewer with every new vineyard and every fence row removed.

    I know you stated Ontario, but look at New York state.. They have an excellent release program on that side. You will need to get an firearm import permit which is not difficult and declare your firearm crossing the border times two.
