    They also hunt mainly open land, hunting tight bush in Ontario with tons of hunters is a lot different than hunting cooleys in Alberta.

    Fox the northern half of the province is all bush just like Ontario so that argument doesn't hold water.

    How many people do you see out there hunting? How many accidents do they have? What is the hunter density in the province?

    My comments hold a hell of a lot of water, the hunting there is not the same. Party hunting, hunting with dogs, big bush, high hunter populations, etc, etc etc.

    Boy are you ever touchy lol. I was just making a comment on blaze orange hunting requirements in AB. There are none, not even for small game either. You implied Alberta was all flat land with coolies. I actually checked google earth to be sure before commenting that you were in fact incorrect. I have no idea on hunting pressure, that's why I didn't comment on it. But I would imagine northern Ontario doesn't have high hunter populations either.

    Regardless of hunter numbers, overall, Ontario has more people in the GTA than in the entire province of Alberta. That means the little available hunting area in proximity to that population can have very high hunter density.
    Lest people think city folk are unfairly targetted with regards to hunter orange requirements, the Ministry just applies a blanket law to the entire province.

    who keeps bow hunting, who stays at home and who picks up the gun? If you keep bow hunting what do you change in your game. Obviously the pre rut turns to the rut, but what about the pressure if you share private land or hunt public land?
    Sure wish I could bow hunt then. Bow season closes during the controlled hunts here. Even if I apply for the controlled, and wear orange, i'm not allowed to hunt with a bow in hand. It's nonsense. Not really interested in shooting anything with a gun, so I just stay out of the woods those weeks to keep the pressure off.

    A trophy is in the eye of the bow holder
