The Ontario government today announced a consultation designed to make the moose draw fairer, more accessible and simpler for hunters by updating its approach to managing moose.
Over the next two years, the government intends to work with an advisory committee, which will review how tag quotas are developed, how hunters apply for tags and the current allocation process. Advice on the current tag draw system will be a first order priority for the committee.
John Yakabuski, Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry, said,
We appreciate the feedback and perspectives shared by hunters and stakeholders, and I encourage them to continue contributing to the discussion on moose management approaches.
The review will examine ways of improving service, while helping to maintain healthy moose populations and sustainable hunting for years to come.
