The Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) and Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) licensing and policy staff plan to host an online demonstration about the new moose tag allocation process later this month.

The virtual event, which will include live discussion, aims to help moose hunters understand “big changes” coming to the process in 2021, including what they need to know about the new system and what to consider when applying, organizers stated.

Questions can also be submitted during registration.

“The OFAH is committed to making sure moose hunters have the information they need,” the organization stated.

Anyone can register for the Zoom session at www.ofah.org/insideaccess.

Firearms Q&A planned

The OFAH is also hosting a members-only virtual Q&A session on the topic of Bill C-21 and other firearms issues on Tuesday, March 23, at 7 p.m.

The Zoom session will aim to answer the questions of firearms owners wanting to know the impact the legislation could have, if it becomes law.

Sign up at www.ofah.org/insideaccess for this limited-audience event. For more information on joining the OFAH, visit www.ofah.org/membership/.

Well this is the begging.Forcing out young hunters and older hunters on fixed incomes. I know of about a dozen fellows not going to apply for moose anymore because of new rules. The buddy system would have been much better. Hunters wanted change but not this.

The reason I ask is, we can try and conserve those group members points and plan to be be successful on a yearly basis. Obviously new members joining would start at 1 point, and senior members who may have 12 or more would be "used up" for points for the next several years potentially.
