Sudbury Local News - MNR conservation officers prep for hunting season

"it is now hunting season across northeastern Ontario, and the Ministry of Natural Resources is going to be out in force making sure hunters follow the rules.

In a press release, the Ministry said it would be out on a safety-first campaign between Oct. 9-23, and would educate and enforce hunter-orange requirements and the safe use of firearms.

Offenses can net up to $25,000 in fines, imprisonment, or both."

Watch for hunters as you use the trails in fall.

Hunters are required to wear solid hunter-orange clothing and a hunter orange cap, except during bows-only season. The clothing must be solid, and mesh construction vests are not acceptable."
