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).
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.
