Tamagami grouse/rabbit hunting

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys. 

My 2 sons have taken up hunting. Grouse, rabbits and waterfowl. They are thinking of exploring Tamagami area crown land early November. Will Camp in the woods.  Does anybody have any advice on where approximately  to go for grouse and rabbits?  And the likelyhood of success.  Thanks  Peter

Friends of mine are going up this weekend.  They have a cabin on lake Tamagami for a few nights.

I'll let you know how they do!

The first week of November is usually deer season, not sure if there are many organized deer camps in the area, but, and I know you have just as much right to be there as they do, if you are small game hunting in an area where camps are running organized deer drives you won't be the most popular guy in the bush.

/\ /\ /\ this is good advice to avoid a really negative start to their new interest in hunting

I'd call the MNR office that looks after the area they are interested in and try and talk to a CO and ask him/ her where is a good spot to set up far enough away from the established hunting parties.

Not too many deer hunters once you get up north of Temagami, since that is getting to be near their northern range.

Find the food find the birds.  There are many thousands of km's of gravel logging roads with good grouse potential, but plenty of people hunting them too.

Just got back from there last week.

Don't worry about deer camps. Not a deer area. Yes there could be a few but generally very low deer populations.

For camping area's look at either the sites along Red Squirrel Rd. or maybe Rabbit Lake Rd. Many nice lake front sites which don't see a lot of use this time of year.

    • Guided Moose Hunting Recommendations

      My wife and I have really been hit with the hunting bug and want to start branching out into moose hunting. We currently just hunt deer, grouse and rabbit/hares so this would be a big leap for us. So for our first time, we really want to go with a guide. We’re thinking either Quebec, northern Ontario or possible NFLD for our first trip. A BC moose hunt is on our bucket list but we want to keep the costs somewhat reasonable for the first time so that’s out of the question at this moment.  Do

    • NF Hunting Regs Question

      Hi, This is a question that seems to be in the gray area. From my understanding of the regs on the matter, I believe it would be lawful to carry a rifle for hunting moose and a shotgun for hunting grouse during the rifle moose season in Ontario but I'm curious what other people think or if anybody had this question answered by the ministry. The regs state that only during the bow season it's illegal to carry a rifle or a shotgun. Thanks!
