HUNTING AT THE TIME OF SHOOTING

A safe, responsible and respectful hunter seeks not only to harvest the game he covets, but to do it properly and effectively in accordance with the hunter’s code of behavior. Hunting at the moment of shooting is an opportunity to apply your knowledge and judgment in scenarios illustrated by images grouped by species.

  1. Identify your target
  2. Is your target well placed and within a reasonable distance?
  3. Is the firing line clear?
  4. In this situation, is your shot legal and safe?

PLANNING A HUNTING TRIP, A STRATEGIC CHOICE!

In public land :

No matter where your hunting activities take place, you must have read the [hunting regulations according to the territory] and ideally have a copy with you.
There are many variations depending on the area for:

  • The catch limits;
  • Hunting seasons;
  • The gear allowed.

To indicate your presence in a territory, use [temporary posters] on which it may be indicated by example “Hunters on the lookout”. Ideally, your display should be limited to a radius of 300 meters from a lookout site.

In private land :

Always ask permission from [landowner] before traveling on his land:

  • Drive in a respectful manner in all respects;
  • Always mention the number of hunters who are present on [his land];
  • Ask him to indicate areas where he prefers that you hunt (and those whose access is forbidden).

[Property owner]
Many hunters practice their activity on private lands. The regions of Estrie, Center-du-Québec, Chaudière-Appalaches and Montérégie are predominantly consisting of private land. Although the fauna is a collective property, the land base belongs to right to the owner and he alone has the choice to allow or to prohibit access.

[ Security rules] Statistics show that there are very few accidents during the hunt, which makes it a very safe activity.
