people not familiar with Canada wonder whether there is any advantage
to hunting in a Wildlife Reserve. The answer is yes, and for several
reserves restrict access for all activities (hunting,
fishing, touring, etc.) which means that harvest of all species
is more restricted than on crown (public) land. In the case of
bear hunting, the activity is strictly managed and all hunters
(residents and non-residents) must go through a designated guide
to hunt. This means that there is no competition between guides
in the area for sites, and no residents hunting on their own in
the area. Therefore, hunters can expect to see many bears during
their stay and are more likely to encounter large boars.
advantage is access to great fishing
lakes. Furthermore, the Laurentide Wildlife Reserve
has over 1,000
lakes and 8 major rivers to offer exciting sport
fishing (speckled and lake trout) for both the beginner and expert.
