If you are not familiar with the fantastic hunting opportunities we have here in Prince Edward County, you’re in for a great surprise. We scour “The County” to find you the very best birds. With thousands of private acreage to choose from, we sure have our work cut out for us, and we love every minute.
Here in The County we hunt Eastern Wild Turkeys. Since their initial release of 20 birds in 1989, the population has skyrocketed. Birds in the 25 to 28 pound range are not uncommon. A-Typical birds have been bagged with up to 5 beards!

PATTERN YOUR GUN
If possible, try different choke and shell combinations. At the very least, make sure you know exactly which shell performs best with the choke tube you will be using for your hunt.
Try shooting at various distances. Set up a target at 10, 20, 30 and even 40 yards. How tight is your pattern?
It is your responsibility to know how your shotgun is shooting BEFORE your hunt with us.
WHAT TO BRING
- Bug Spray – Early spring hunts are guaranteed to involve more flying critters then turkeys.
- Face Mask – Keeps the bugs out and your shinny face hidden.
- TP – You never know when nature will call. Keep a few squares handy.
- Camera (or use your cell) – A picture in the field is always the best!
- Turkey Calls – If you have been practicing at home and would like some pointers, bring them along!
- Waterproof Boots – Spring brings rain, and lots of it. Soggy feet are never enjoyable.
- Layer up! – Spring weather is unpredictable. Warm layers, wind layers, and waterproof layers can save the day.
- Snacks & Bottled Water- Turkey hunting can work up a thirst and an appetite!
ONTARIO TURKEY LICENSE - Changes for 2017!!
- An Outdoors Card – hunting version
- Small Game License
- Wild Turkey License
- Wild Turkey Game Seal
To obtain an Outdoors Card you must first successfully pass an Ontario Hunter Education Course. You must also take the Ontario Firearms Safety Course to use a gun to hunt. Following these courses you will be issued a Outdoors Card. You may then purchase a Small Game license.
In previous years, to hunt wild turkeys in Ontario, it was essential that you complete an educational course (in a classroom or by watching a DVD) and then completing an exam with a certified examiner. This is no longer a requirement. New hunters will learn about hunting wild turkeys as part of their Ontario Hunter Education Course.
In our Wildlife Management Area (WMU-70) we are permitted to harvest two bearded turkeys in the spring Ontario hunt. This requires purchasing two (2) Wild Turkey Licenses/Game Seals. We are NOT permitted to harvest both birds in one day.
