Hunting

Hunting is permitted at a number of Long Point Region Conservation Authority conservation areas and forest tracts in order to help manage local wildlife populations and to provide recreational opportunities for hunters. LPRCA properties offer prime habitat for wild turkey, white-tailed deer, waterfowl, ruffed grouse and other small game.

Those who hunt on Long Point Region Conservation Authority property must have an Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) membership and follow all provincial and municipal hunting regulations.

Some LPRCA properties require permission to hunt. Email the administration office at conservation@lprca.on.ca or call 519-842-4242 for more information about hunting at Deer Creek Conservation Area, Rock’s Mill Conservation Area and the Lee Brown Waterfowl Management Area.
