    Default Snaring Rabbits

    Not sure if this is the right forum but I'm generally new to hunting and doing lots of reading online about various topics. Today I read online that as a resident with a small game license I'm able to snare rabbits, given I use the appropriate size/material of wire and a 10" or less loop. The person in the video said in the winter time, but I haven't been able to locate this in the regs perhaps I'm missing it somewhere. There wasn't dates specified in the video and I'm sure there was more that he may have missed. Im just trying to educate myself on ways to fill my freezer legally and find ways to spend more time with my family outside.

    If you look at the summary under general regulations there is a small section about snares page 27

    You can snare rabbits anytime the season is open, some townships may also require you to buy a snare license. However you cannot snare rabbits south of the Mattawa and French River.

    Pay attention to this range line. It is clearly stated in the regs

    Halfway between Thunder Bay and Sault Ste. Marie. I lived in Kitchener for a short period, would tell people I'm from Northern Ontario and they would generally reply with "Oh like Perry Sound". But I also met a few that knew where I was talking about.

    Mom grew up near Kap, growing up Barrie was north, ha ha ha.

    I was able to take a day trip with my mom and grandpa up to Little Long Rapids, that is about 10 miles from the swamp that goes all the way to James Bay, furthest north in Ontario. Also had the opportunity to work 6 hours north by pickup from Yellowknife on the ice road, was very cool, makes you realize how small you really are.

    As an aside, my grandpa worked for Miller when the highway went in through White River, they used to put their wages down on not watching a fish there.

    My youngest boy worked for a several months over a couple years in Quebec the furthest northern part along the NW passage. We enjoyed seeing different animals then you would normally see. But he didn't think it was right to be snowing on Canada Day.

    In Ontario it can snow in every month of the year, you don't have to go that far north for snow in July, ha ha.

    That would have been an experience for him for sure, never to be forgotten.
