Three years goes by fast when you are having fun hunting and fishing. It might be time to take a peek at the expiry date on your Outdoors Card. Are you due for a new one?

Starting Dec. 3 you will be able to renew your card online, by phone (1-800-288-1155), or at participating Service Ontario centres and licence issuers.

The Ministry of Natural Resources will not be mailing out reminders or forms this year and is encouraging all anglers and hunters to make sure their card is up to date.

You get the CARD- Plus another slip of paper for your fishing lic AND another slip of paper for your hunting lic ??? NOW, i have to carry three different lics now. Im sure they will now have more slips for your -Deer -Bear - Moose----- This is so stupid to say the lest. A sticker on the back of the outdoors card worked just fine before !!!
