Duck Hunter Busted Using Bait

MNR Media Release – Migratory Birds and Bait


A Warsaw resident has been fined $1,500 for offences related to illegal hunting practices.

Kenneth R. Hutchison pleaded guilty and was fined $1,000 for hunting waterfowl within 400 metres of bait and $500 for depositing bait during a prohibited period.

In addition to the fines, he is banned from holding a migratory game bird hunting permit for one year.

The court heard that on September 25, 2010, conservation officers checked Hutchison at the Indian River, in Douro-Dummer Township, Peterborough County. An inspection of the area close to the hunting blind revealed it had been baited with corn.

Justice of the Peace Carl Young heard the case in the Ontario Court of Justice,

Peterborough, on September 8, 2011.

It is illegal to hunt waterfowl within 400 metres of where bait has been deposited. In addition, hunters may not deposit bait within 14 days of the open season for waterfowl in an area where they intend to hunt.

For further information about Ontario hunting regulations, please consult the 2011 Hunting Regulations Summary, available at ServiceOntario/Government Information Centres, licence issuers and at

O.F.A.H. Women’s Outdoor Weekend

One-of-a-kind experience happening in Minden this weekend

OFAH welcomes women to the outdoors.

The Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH), a strong supporter of female participation in outdoor activities such as fishing and hunting, is set to host its 17th annual Women’s Outdoor Weekend. The three-day, action-packed event begins at noon on Friday and runs through to Sunday afternoon at the Kinark Outdoor Centre, near Minden. This year’s 75 plus participants hail from North Bay, London, Sarnia and many points in between, and for the first time, includes women from the province of Quebec.

As the name implies, Women’s Outdoor Weekend is designed to remove the barriers that prevent women from taking up hunting, fishing and other outdoor pursuits. In Canada, women make up approximately 25 percent of resident adult anglers and 15 percent of hunters, and represent a significant opportunity to grow participation in traditional outdoor pursuits. Increasingly, the OFAH hears from women who are interested in making the outdoors a greater part of their personal and family lifestyle and the weekend event supports that goal.

“This weekend brings women together who would like to acquire outdoor skills, learn about conservation and meet like-minded people,” says Alesha Caldwell, OFAH Conservation Outreach Programs Coordinator and event organizer. “With one-on-one instruction from experts, participants actually learn how to hold a fishing rod, and handle crossbows, compound bows and firearms, at the same time as they are enjoying great food and the wonderful outdoor environment, which is so much a part of the OFAH-hosted experience.”

Activities include canoeing, fishing, archery, range instruction, outdoor survival, wood-carving, fly tying, high ropes course, a night hike and stargazing, as well as the all-new and highly requested, introduction to small engine repair. Also new this year is a demonstration by the Ministry of Natural Resources Canine Unit. Participants will also have the opportunity to win various prizes, including a camping package valued at $1,000, courtesy of Coleman Canada.

With over 100,000 members, subscribers and supporters, and 670 member clubs, the OFAH is the province’s largest nonprofit, fish and wildlife conservation-based organization, and the VOICE of anglers and hunters. For more information, visit
