Small Game Regulation Change

On behalf of MNRF..

Following the posting of these decision notices, concerns were raised regarding the timing of implementation of the regulation changes, particularly related to the changes to the hare and rabbit hunting season in northern and central Ontario.  We have listened to these concerns and have made changes to address the issue for this season:

·       Recognizing the complications with changing this ongoing season, we have delayed the implementation of this change to allow Cottontail, European Hare and Snowshoe Hare hunting in Wildlife Management Units 1 to 50 and 53 to 59  to continue until June 15th, 2017, as per the 2016-17 Hunting Regulations Summary.


·         Fall seasons, with the new bag and possession limits, will then open on September 15th, 2017 as per the 2017-18 Hunting Regulations Summary.

If you have any questions regarding the small game and furbearer management regulation changes, please feel free to contact Steve Mills, Senior Policy Advisor, Wildlife Section at stephen.mills@ontario.ca, (705) 755-1207.
