Updates to COVID-19 hunter advice

Earlier this month the government of Ontario announced further COVID-19 restrictions designed to reduce the spread of COVID-19. The government of Ontario is recommending that all Ontarians restrict travel to other regions of the province to only essential purposes. The OFAH encourages everyone to follow the guidance of public health officials, realizing that with gun seasons for moose and deer starting shortly, this will seriously disrupt many of our members’ hunting plans.

You can read the full announcement here. We also recommend visiting covid-19.ontario.ca for additional information on COVID-19 and how to stay safe.

The OFAH is committed to being the go-to source for hunting related information during the pandemic. We’ve updated our dedicated webpage (ofah.org/covid19) with a variety of resources including links to the pages of several public health units that are providing hunter-specific COVID-19 guidance. This guidance addresses the most asked questions we’ve received from hunters such as travel and the impact of gathering size restrictions on hunt camps. We will continue to update our page with any new information as it becomes available.
