Muskoka | by Matt Sitler  

MNR Minister John Yakabuski hopes consultation with hunters and stakeholders will make the system better...

The Province has announced it will work to make the moose draw fairer, more accessible and simpler for hunters by updating its approach to managing moose in Ontario.

Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry John Yakabuski tells Country 102 that over the next two years the government will work with an advisory committee who will review how tag quotas are developed, how hunters apply for tags and the current allocation process.

There are many factors concerning moose population which have to be weighed carefully. (Yakabuski audio)

The review process will take about two years, but the Minister hopes to have a new draw system in place by next year’s August deadline.

The review will also examine ways of improving service while helping maintain healthy moose populations and sustainable hunting into the future.
