Deer Hunters get ready to set your clock

ripple outdoors

Ontario deer hunters will have a split time zone if they hunt the first two weeks of November Gun hunt.

Eastern Daylight Saving times ends November 7th this year. If you at deer camp for two weeks remember to set your clock back on hour on Saturday night before turning out the lights

A quick check on Ontario’s weather website for sunrise/sunset calender for your hunting area will confirm the correct times.

You have to add or subtract an hour difference as it doesn’t include the DST.

An example is for an area I deer hunt:

Check your local times for legal hunting and be safe.

Ensure your gun is encased before and after legal shooting times.
