    father is west of port loring. they haven't seen a deer. a few moose sightings though.
    was up at cottage on the weekend, other side of port loring. neighbours had a doe down Monday morning, their gang had seen five more but only one doe tag.
    haven't talked to them since see how the balance of the week has been.

    Is there much snow? Usually they start to yard up when the snow fly’s

    Lots of snow around Trout Creek. Snow starts around Gravenhurst and full on winter past Huntsville. Our group saw 12 , put 5 on the pole. Used 3 of 4 doe tags we had.

    Our group in WMU 49 had (3) doe permits, we tagged out. lots of snow in Burks Falls, no sign of the rut being on which was surprising. Way too many wolf tracks for our liking.

    A guide we talked to said the wolves drove most of the deer out of our area

    Its getting pretty crazy anywhere within 30 klicks of the park as far as the wolves are concerned. The deer populations in Algonquin have gone the way of the dodo so the packs are expanding. MNR is getting exactly what they wanted.

    We also noticed very little to no rut activity. Also noticed a LOT of wolf sign. Far more then I can recall seeing in my time hunting (close to 20 years)

    we hunt near grundy lake / 522, got 1 doe and that was it for 12 hunters, 2 hounds. Didn't see much in terms of tracks, or scrapes. Very sad deer situation in that area. Still fun to be up at camp though.

    The moose population is doing very very well, saw moose every day. Some drives there would be 3 or 4 moose would come out. At least the hounds got to run something lol.

    Hopefully we get some good winters and the deer population rebounds.

    Six hunters, four tags and only two sets of tracks in four days. Good conditions , with fresh snow each day. The deer were either not moving or the population is down considerably. My guess is with the ugly winter, and late spring the deer heard got hurt.
