Big Game Hunting Opportunities in Ontario, CA
Padre86 posted a topic in General HuntingI'm looking at the big game hunting opportunities in Ontario, CA. According to the province's regulations, non-residents (with some exceptions) have to hunt bear and moose with a licensed guide. So, unguided, DIY hunts (at least for bear and moose) aren't feasible up there. I've looked through a few different guiding websites to get a baseline for the prices that are charged: $3.5k-$6k per person for Moose hunts (depending on the level of guide services); and $2.5k-$3.5k for black bear hunts (again depending on the level of guide services). My question: are there any guides/outfitters which offer minimal services, and cheap fees, for hunting these animals? For example, is there an outfitter which takes on a non-resident hunter as registered guest but allows him/her to hunt DIY for a cheaper rate than what is mentioned above?
Public Comments Accepted Through February 8 The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is now accepting public comment on proposed regulation changes that would allow the use of big bore air rifles as a legal implement for taking big game at certain times and places in New York, beginning in the fall 2016 hunting seasons, Acting Commissioner Basil Seggos announced today. DEC will accept written public comment on the proposed rule changes through February 8, 2016. DEC is proposing to amend the regulations found within Title 6 of the New York Codes, Rules and Regulations (6 NYCRR section 180.3) to allow the use of certain air-powered firearms for hunting big game. Air-powered rifles that meet certain specifications, termed "big bore air rifles," have adequate downrange energy to effectively harvest New York big game species. In 2010, DEC amended these regulations to allow the use of air-powered firearms for hunting small game. "The popularity of air-powered firearms is growing, largely because of technological advancements," said Acting Commissioner Seggos. "These modern firearms produce the force necessary to efficiently harvest big game animals. In addition, because big bore air rifles are not as loud as conventional rifles or shotguns, allowing their use may make hunting more acceptable in locations with higher human densities, including areas where deer are overabundant." Big bore air rifles are available commercially, and they fire bullets of sufficient size at sufficient velocities to safely and efficiently harvest big game. These big bore air rifles would only be allowed for taking big game where other types of rifles are allowed to be used for taking big game. Use of rifles for big game hunting is allowed in most New York counties. Please visit the Rifle, Shotgun, and Bow Areas webpage on DEC's website for more information. Details of the proposed rule can be viewed in the December 23 publication of the New York State Register and on DEC's website under Fish, Wildlife and Marine Resources Proposed, Emergency and recently adopted regulations - http://www.dec.ny.gov/regulations/34113.html#p1s1803 Citizens who wish to make formal public comments through February 8 may do so by sending an email to: [email protected] (include "air rifle regulations" in the subject line) or by writing to: Bryan L. Swift, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, Bureau of Wildlife, 625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12233-4754.
Robinwood Park is a family-oriented hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, skiing, ATVing, and and canoeing club located in the Town of Long Lake near the former village of Sabattis, NY. The Club owns 4100 acres and also leases about 3500 acres of land from Lyme Adirondack Timberlands and was first established over 40 years ago as a hunting and fishing club on forests previously owned by Abbot Augustus Low, Herbert Henry Lehman (governor of New York State from 1933 to 1942), and International Paper Company. Bog Lake, Clear Pond, and Rainer Pond are NY State owned water bodies contained entirely or mostly within club borders. Miles of headwater streams in highlands and spruce bogs of the club feed the Bog, Oswegatchie, Beaver, and Raquette Rivers. Lows Lake adjoins the western club boundary and Lake Lila is a few miles south along the Adirondack Scenic Railway. The main inflow to Lows Lake is the Bog River which flows out of the mile-long Bog Lake and Clear Pond. Largemouth bass are abundant in all lakes, whereas native brook trout are abundant in Bog Lake and rainbow trout are stocked into Clear Pond. Deer, bears, rabbits, eagles, loons, grouse, and now-moose are commonly slighted on the lease. The few images above show Robinwood Park (and surroundings) at a glance; hold your cursor over images to view their captions. Many adiditonal images are provided on other pages. The club is composed of 45 private cabins and two cabins that are shared by members who are unassociated with a private cabin. Both cabins have propane cook stoves and lamps and a wood stove. A smaller cabin has two bedrooms and can sleep up to 6 people, whereas the larger cabin has 4-5 bedrooms and can sleep up to 10 people. A main lodge, next to the small club cabin has running water, a generator, and is used mainly for cooking, meetings, meals, and entertainment. We are located about 20 miles NW of Long Lake. The main gate is located west of Little Tupper Lake near the large dirt parking area that was once the Sabattis Station (nearby Hotel) at the long forgotten village of Sabattis, NY. The club cabins and main lodge are located 0.9 mile SW of the main gate and Bog and ClearLakes are another 4.0 miles further into the property. A recently dismantled 6-bedroom log cabin was once located on the rocky point overlooking Bog Lake. The road continues 3 miles past the lakes and then begins a 6 mile loop with numerous logging roads and trails branching off; some are overgrown and some are active. A few lead to active beaver ponds and meadows or recently cleared log landings. Robinwood Park truely represents the “Real Adirondacks”. Club members treat others as family and go out of there way to help when/where needed. There are always some event or activity for everyone to enjoy. Our annual summer picnic and winter banquet (and 1 or 2 work weekends) permit members to socialize as much or as little as they wish. Timber harvests were completed 3-to-4 years ago and allow members opportunity to see parts of the landscape not seen in decades. Several 20-acre clear cuts have been done to help promote grouse and woodcock populations. The logging in selected areas will also improve forage for, and the survival of, local deer herds. Whether you want to hike the backwoods; stroll down a dirt road or old skidway; canoe miles of flows and lakes; hunt deer, bear, or grouse; fish for trout or bass, atv or snowmobile; socialize with other members; enjoy a camp fire; or simply read a book by a cozy woodstove, the lands (and members) of Robinwood exemplify what the Real Adirondacks are all about.

Just wanted to let everybody know that Utah's big game drawing opens on January 28, 2016. Utah is still affordable to put in and acquire points for all of the species Utah offers. The license to put in is $65. Each species application is $10 and they only charge you if you draw out. Don't miss out on a great year ahead. The hunt dates for our rifle elk hunts will be in the rut Sept 17-25. The general rifle deer hunt will be Oct 22-30 which will make the last 5 days perfect for some pre rut deer hunting. Our elk and deer hunting is as good as it has ever been! Best of luck to everyone who comes west. I will be glad to help anybody coming to Utah trying to find a hunt to meet their needs. There is plenty of over the counter hunts available also. Shane Scott shanescottoutfitting.com

ALG11 posted a topic in General HuntingHey, I know it's late into the season for this but I'm just feeling it out for the future. I'm new to hunting, and I live in Brooklyn. I have a couple of friends in 3s that hunt but its not that easy to coordinate with them. Anybody closer to Brooklyn that would possibly be looking to partake when possible. I have no problem traveling a bit if timing is right. I also own a trailer in nj that is about 15 minutes from Orange County and from what I heard there is state land there but I have no information about it. Oh btw I have bow and I'm In the process of going through the nyc process in order to be able to purchase a firearm. Hoping to lease some land next season if a good group forms. good luck out there tomorrow and every other day. Thanks
