ACTION

Ontario Wild Turkey Hunting Study Guide Now Available.

The OFAH employs a team of professional staff to review policy proposals, changes to regulations and legislation and any other initiatives or programs to advocate for Ontario’s natural resources and the rights and traditions of anglers and hunters.  Your Federation responds to proposed changes that could affect fish and wildlife conservation and angling and hunting opportunities.  The OFAH continues to be involved in wild turkey management by:

  • Recommending additional wild turkey hunting opportunities
  • Advocating for more youth wild turkey hunting opportunities
  • Providing a voice for turkey hunters on the Ontario Wild Turkey Working Group (provincial committee
  • Representing wild turkey hunters through the OFAH Sporting Dogs/Small Game/Migratory Birds/Wetlands Advisory Committee
