    Been hunting around here for 38 years and have never seen a Hun or heard tell of any. May have been Turkey poults? Closest I've heard of past huntable numbers was the Copetown/Ancaster area and 30-40 years ago.

    I use to see them in the fields when I first moved to Russell but not anymore.

    There’s a small covey of Huns in the Burford area. The land owners are very protective of them. Some times on a winter day you can see them out in the field.

    Hey, ive hunted huns around Kemptville to Winchester areas for 30. Years.. spent last fall chasing them only twice. They are there but your going to knock on dozens of doors and walk a lot of miles.
    Out of 11 farms I used to have access to, ive lost all but 3 to enter.
    We only hunted the 3 coveys we found once.. on adjoining 500 acres or so.
    Coveys ranged from 8-20 out of the 3. We only took 3 birds.. one property had one pair the dog found and we left them be.
    One of the properties had bobwhite when I was a kid.. farmers son told me last year they haven't seen one in 20yrs...
    Sad part is they told me that the old way (25yrs) ago they hunted them was to walk them up with 12 guys in a line... shooting out entire coveys.
    Buddy of mine in Kemptville has had a few over winter in his yard at the bird feeders.
    Frankly the limits should be reduced, and season doesn't close anymore in Nov.. frankly game bird management is gone in Ontario.

    The reason there is no longer any real management of them is they are not a native species, just like pheasants and Jacks. Therefore the MNR has no real interest in managing them.

    So what's the excuse in regards to grouse and bobwhite management?

    Don't know. Haven't heard or read much. I have heard in the past that MNR isn't concern about non native species. But honestly I can't say for sure this is just what have read and technically itt does make some sort of sense.

    I don't think Grouse are hurting to much I have seen some areas that seem to be on a down cycle and my area at home finally seems to be on a up cycle possibly starting this year as I have not seen this many grouse in about decade.
