vision monocular and so on. But hey, I’m a guy, after all, and


possess what I would describe as an inborn need to putter and tinker. “How do you walk through the


bush with all that stuff?” you ask. Well, it ain’t easy, yet all the


ribbing in the world hasn’t fazed me in the slightest. So, what can you expect from


The hunt is currently underway in Wildlife Management Units (WMUs) 64, 65, 66A, 67, 68, 73, 76, 77, 78, 80, 81, 82, 84, 85, 87, 89, 90, 91, 92 and 93. Now get out there and enjoy the fruits of


solid wildlife management and what I have referred to as the province’s greatest success story. Who would have thought only 15 to 20 years ago there was nary a wild turkey in eastern Ontario? And now we have them stacked up like cordwood. Avid Ontario bear enthusiasts can be


found hitting the tree-stands right about now, in search of that mysterious beast they call “old blackie”. Sure, it’s not the coveted spring season,


but at least it’s still bear hunting, and the powers that be have not abolished it completely. Resident bear enthusiasts are reminded


to complete the mandatory questionnaire available at: Ontario.ca/hunting. These questionnaires must be completed


and sent-in by December 15 at the latest. Also bear in mind that should you


harvest a bruin this fall with an ear tag, the animal has been chemically immobilized and is deemed unfit for consumption. If you do happen to bag a bear with one of these ear- tags, please call 1 (866) 514-2327. Man, nothing gets the adrenaline


pumping like being de hombre a hombre with North America’s most powerful animal. Trust me, regardless of the outcome, just seeing a bear in the wild during your hunt is something one never forgets. Autumn, for me, is not just about


spending time in the great outdoors with family and friends. Nor is it simply the thrill of the hunt, although those are a huge part of the package. Another element of the hunting season is


all the gadgets I get to play with. Of course I am the brunt of many a bad


joke at deer camp, what with my copious GPS units, sophisticated two-way communication, digital range-finders, spotting scopes, night- www.bounder.ca


future Outdoors Guy columns? Well, a lot of what you see here and more. In each issue, I will try to focus on a local business or two in the outdoor


field and what they offer local hunters and fisherman. I also hope to include as many fish and game events and activities as humanly possible. I have always believed that


knowledge is power and nowhere is that more true than with fish & wildlife conservation. The more we know, the easier it is to keep one step ahead of the animal rights people. Until next time, enjoy the many


other great features Bounder has to offer and I wish you all success in your hunting and fishing endeavours.
