It’s always an exciting time of the year when the new hunting regulations are released for the year. This past week the regulations for migratory birds for Ontario were released. I always find it an exciting reveal when reading these each year. I look forward to checking out any changes in daily bag limits but mostly I am interested in the opening dates for the different birds. I am quite excited that the season for Canada Geese is open a little bit earlier this year. This date is always one I look forward to as I have had some of my most favourite memories from different goose hunts. I look forward to getting after some honkers early September this year, which really isn’t that far away. Looks like it is time to dust off the decoys and check equipment because this season will be upon us very soon. Practicing the goose calls will once again be my hobby in any spare time. The excitement is definitely starting to sink in.
