Three whitetail bucks fighting in a fieldBow season for deer ended only a week ago for many Ontario hunters, but it’s never too early to start thinking about the next white-tail season.

The 2015 hunting regulations aren’t yet available, but here are the tentative start dates for the Ontario deer seasons. The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry advises hunters to check its website regularly for changes or updates.
