    It's in my digital copy I downloaded three minutes after reading this thread.

    An update is needed.

    Also what happened to our Cormorant season?
    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.

    The deer population is at an all time low here, and its impossible to get a moose tag.

    If a wild pig walks in front of me while im hunting, im eating chops for dinner the next night. Until its illegal, that is.

    X2. These threads need a "like" button. I'm not under any delusion,though, that when they show up and enough get shot,we'll need a tag from the government in short order. They'll want their "piece".

    I think the deer population is up considerably here. It was a decent winter here for them.

    By reporting, the MNR then proceeds to catch the males only, quick vasectomy making the boar sterile and the herd slowly dwindle/die off
    Shooting the one, sends the herd elsewhere to populate and be weary of humans

That's a big plus for all us varmint hunters hunting in the fall. It's still required that we use the proper firearm as prescribed in the regs for the open season,though. (shotguns only). That recommendation for ground blind marking has always been there. I really doubt there'll be any further blaze orange regs coming out of it. That would be pretty tough to float that one.
    The problem is the firearm restriction pursuant to center-fire is only lifted for small game hunters who are hunting wolf or coyote. However if I am out hunting grouse, and I carry slugs in the event I might encounter an aggressive bear, or if I'm out rabbit hunting with my center-fire rifle in an open season of big game I will still need the appropriate big game licence. I don't do rim-fire, I load-down center-fire cast bullets to shoot rabbits. So they really haven't move that much on center-fire firearms in the open season of big game, Although you do now have a dodge if you are hunting other small game. You can always lie to the CO's an tell them you are either hunting coyote or wolf, bound to be a coyote running around somewhere so you won't be caught out hunting in an area where no such varmints exist. However if they notice you have bird shot with you, don't suggest you are carrying it in case you see a grouse it might give them a wrong impression. Suggest you might have put in your pocket by mistake. Also don't refer to the rifle cartridges as a rabbit loads.

    Nothing says you cannot hunt coyotes with #7.5 lead shot.

    Lotza deer all winter at my place. Numbers are great in my area. Very few yote and wolf tracks all winter, which is not so normal but good I guess. Tons of scraped trees from last fall just seeing many now

    Yep,or 00 buck shot for that matter. That was a dumb regulation. I'm glad it's gone.
