Last year’s local shotgun seasons for deer were Nov. 7 - 13 and Dec. 5 – 11 for muzzle loading guns and bows. We recommended you avoid hiking in the woods for those dates and otherwise to have worn bright colours during the fall months. Other townships may have different dates.
Local bow and arrow season for deer typically runs from Oct 1 - Dec 31.
Stay tuned for updated 2023 dates.
