Elk hunt announced for fall 2011 in North Hastings County

The new year is starting off on a high note with the announcement by Minister of Natural Resources, Linda Jeffrey, that there will be an elk hunt this fall.

The move comes more than a decade after elk were first transferred from Alberta and released in target areas in Ontario as part of a major restoration effort. The Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (O.F.A.H.) has made a significant financial and volunteer contribution to the plan, which was led by the MNR, and is pleased that the hard work of all the partners has paid off.
