The Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (O.F.A.H.) is informing hunters who intend to purchase wild turkey tags for the new fall hunt, that the tags are not as widely available as the spring version.

With few exceptions, hunters wishing to purchase a wild turkey tag will need to travel to a Wildlife Management Unit (W.M.U.) that will have an open wild turkey season this year.

 Within these specific W.M.U.’s, tags will be available at ServiceOntario centres and from licence issuers that stocked wild turkey tags in the spring.

Issuers outside the designated W.M.U.’s who specifically requested tags may also have some availability.

There will be no fall wild turkey tags available through the Interactive Voice Response (I.V.R.) system.This past spring the Ministry of Natural Resources (M.N.R.) announced the opening of a fall wild turkey season in parts of southeastern and southwestern Ontario.

The new fall hunting regulations include an open season for W.M.U.’s 64, 67, 68, 73, 76, 77, 78, 81, 82, 84, 89, 90, 92, and 93.

Regulations for the fall season vary from the spring, with hunters allowed to take one bird, which can be of either gender. The fall season runs from October 14 to 26 in 2008.
