In Kenora and likely elsewhere hunting is one of the more controversial of sporting activities and one where safety is an important consideration.

Kenora is situated in Wildlife Management Unit 7B.  In the Kenora area hunters can hunt for black bear, moose, whitetail deer, grouse, geese, ducks and wolf. Much of the hunting lands are road accessible and public property.   You can also hunt on some of the wilderness islands on Lake of the Woods. However, there are Open Season dates that must be strictly adhered while participating in a hunting sport and a license is required to participate in these type activities.

Hunting Rules and Etiquette

  • If you wish to hunt, you must have a license valid for the species or group of  species you are hunting
  • Make certain you hunt only during open season dates.
  • Be sure your hunting license is current.
  • You must carry your Outdoors Card, license tag, any validation tags and any game seals with you while hunting.
  • Upon request, you must show these documents to a Conservation Officer.
  • Reminder: License validity or expiry dates do not indicate open season dates.
