    UPDATE:

    200 pheasants will be released in ZONE B prior to small game and pheasant opening day on Friday September 25 2020.

    Please practice provincial COVID safety guidelines if you encounter other property users in the parking lots.

    Since August 5 we have received enough financial hunter support to release 200 birds for the 2021 season.....Big thank you to those who have contributed!

    Our new User Guide/Map can be downloaded on our web site and is also available as a hard copy in all 20 access parking lots.

    Our office remains closed to the public with no visitors allowed for the safety of volunteers, staff and public property users.

    Hunted the Hullett opener today for the first time in many years. The cover this year is spectacular. Ran into several other hunters and had brief pleasant encounters. It got hot pretty quickly and we tapped out at 11am. We moved two birds and managed to bag both although not due to my shooting. Popped into Clinton Sporting Goods and grabbed a couple pheasant challenge tickets too so the program will keep running. I strongly encourage people to do the same. There were literally dozens of people hunting today. Imagine if they all contributed financially to this great place.

    I made it out for a quick hunt this morning before work. Managed to bag a rooster. Noticed quite a few vehicles parked in the parking lots and shots in the distance. If everyone who hunts pheasants at Hullett buys some tickets Iím sure we can keep enjoying this great pheasant hunting tradition Hullett offers.

    My son and I made it out on Saturday for a hunt @ Hullett. It quickly warmed up but that did not prevent us from flushing 3 birds and ending up with 2.
    We packed up around noon as it just got too hot to walk and the dog was getting over heated.
    Overall a great time, the grounds are in perfect condition. We saw lots of vehicles in the parking lot but did not run into many hunters while out and about.
    In speaking to one hunter in the parking lot, we were warned not to shoot any decoy pheasant? The MNR was out the day before and placing pheasant decoys on the side of the road. They did catch a few overly excited hunters.
    One other thing, we saw some duck hunters setup in a swamp in zone "B". I thought you could only duck hunt in Zone "A"? Am I wrong? Are you allowed to duck hunt in zone B?

    Thanks for the support Dilly! I will be visiting Clinton Sporting Goods to collect ticket stubs and revenue today. Thank goodness in this year of COVID that our tickets are selling well on our online platforms....we promptly mail the stubs to the hunters purchasing. We will update the revenue collected so far for the 2021 release in a week or so on this thread.

    We circulated this message in a PDF "Hunting at Hullett" document to our membership via email last week. The original document contained many hyperlinks. The regulations are hard for some to understand so we attempted to educate both hunters and non hunters:
