I am an NPCA-permitted hunter with a 2021 permit. Can I hunt or prepare to hunt on NPCA properties?
All NPCA conservation areas remain open for passive recreational use such as hiking and bird watching.
Hunting activities at designated properties such as Mud Lake, Wainfleet Bog, Chippawa Creek, etc. are currently permitted with the permit guidelines. Hunters must abide all hunting rules (provide link). Hunters must display their permit on their vehicle dash while parked at the conservation area, and carry their wallet card permit at all times while hunting on NPCA properties.
These areas have limited parking spaces and there are no washroom facilities available. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own hand sanitizer as no handwashing facilities are provided in these areas.
Visitors are asked to follow these guidelines when at NPCA conservation areas:
