Ontario Changing Moose Hunting Season

Ontario is changing how moose are hunted to respond to concerns about the moose population in certain parts of the province.

In 2015, Ontario is reducing moose tags for resident hunters by 15 per cent across the province and shortening the hunting season for moose calves in northern Ontario. In 2016, Ontario will also delay the start of the moose season by one week across much of northern Ontario. These actions are designed to help sustain and grow Ontario's moose populations.
