How is COVID-19 impacting fishing and hunting

The COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on fishing and hunting in Ontario has raised many questions within the outdoors community. The OFAH is hearing from anglers and hunters from across the province with questions about how COVID-19 has or will change fishing and hunting.

Can I still go fishing and hunting this spring?

Should I go fishing and hunting this spring?

Has the moose draw application process been changed?

Those are just some of the questions we’ve been asked in recent days – and we’re doing our best to answer them through a COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions section on our website.
