A popular seasonal sport
in Canada, hunting is carefully regulated and controlled by the provincial
and territorial governments. Canadian forests provide great areas to hunt
deer, wild turkey, migratory birds, and moose. Prospective hunters must know
the legal seasons for each game species they plan to hunt and obtain all
required licenses before they head off to the woods. Non-residents of
Ontario also must be the registered guest of a tourist outfitter and/or hunt
with a guide where required, according to the
Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. Prospective hunters in
Ontario must be at least 16 years old and must complete the Canadian
Firearms Safety Course Exam as a step toward licensing. The written
examination tests the prospective hunter's understanding of Canada's hunting
rules and regulations and of safe practices for using a weapon when hunting. Ontario's Hunter Education Course Exam must be completed before the
prospective hunter can apply for a Canadian hunting license. The Ontario
exam tests the knowledge of prospective hunters regarding provincial hunting
laws, gun safety, and wildlife-identification strategies. The program is
administered by the
Ministry of Natural Resources in partnership with the
Federation of Anglers and Hunters. Would-be hunters must obtain the
hunting version of the Outdoors Card issued by the Ministry of
Natural Resources. There are hunting and fishing versions of the
Outdoors Card. Hunters with guns must carry the hunting version, classified
as the "H1 Outdoors Card." The card permits hunting using guns and
archery. The card must be purchased from the
Ministry of Natural Resources website or from an accredited third-party
retailer dealing with licenses for hunting. To be eligible to purchase this
card and to hunt, prospective hunters must have already completed the
required exams detailed above. In addition to these requirements, hunters
must have all applicable licenses, license tags, e-licenses, game seals and
validation tags for the species being hunted, according to the
Ministry of Natural Resources.
