Both my wife and I were in Pool 2, so not holding my breath. Calves again this year no doubt, but we can shoot 14 deer between the two of us . . . . . . almost makes up for no adult moose. laugh

Jim,

Maybe, for those of us concerned about getting adult moose tags in Ontario, we should read this: www.ontarioblackbears.com

You could join me in helping to eradicate some of the problem, if you wish...

I have two very active baits in Haliburton Co. Could have more, but need more resident hunters.

Keith, I am also in pool 2 this year. Through a screw up due to one of our party missing the change in application date we are uncertain about getting an adult tag.

Since I drew a tag last year I did not want to draw a tag by accident in one of the secondary pools so I asked for unit 99Z. Tonight I was rereading the regulations and for the first time noted that they say persons who are in Pool 1 can ensure they remain there by using unit 99Z. A closer reading is not specific about what happens to an applicant who is in pool 2 and who uses this designation. I then phoned in on the automated line and was advised I had not been in the draw. This is what I expected but now am concerned I may remain in pool 2 in 2010.

Will have to wait until Tuesday (due to the Civic Holiday on Monday) to get clarification from the MNR on my situation.

Without an adult tag at least 2 of our party probably do not want to go on a hunt. This is understandable since a cow and calf we got two years ago are the first of each we have seen in hunting season in the last 20 years. We hunt the lakes and do not go near public access cut over areas.

The automated line was so busy this morning I guess the other members of our party couldn't get through to see how they did. Anyway as yet I haven't heard from them.

Have to wait a little longer I guess to see how we have made out.

Jim

Bob, I read the article and it is quite interesting. None of our party have made a point of hunting black bear other than by looking for them as an incidental quarry. I was nearly at the point of trying them when the spring hunts were cancelled.

I have only tried eating bear meat once and was not too thrilled with it. How well it was prepared I'm not sure. I kind of hate to hunt for something I may not want to eat. I know from reading various threads here on the campfire that many people really like the meat. I can't make a proper judgment based on my limited experience.

Depending upon how we finally make out in getting a tag (see my reply to The Shootist) I may be looking for some alternative hunt this fall. When do you hunt for black bear? I know when the season opens (am assuming you are in unit 56 which opens Sept. 1st) but do you hunt at the beginning or a little later?

In any case I'll have to wait until the first of the week and till I hear from the rest of our party to find out what our plans are.

Your offer is certainly appreciated. Thanks,

Jim

Just a few minutes ago I got a call from one of our party. He said when he phoned in he was told he was successful in the draw. The unfortunate part is the phone message doesn't tell you whether you drew a bull or cow tag. For this you have to wait for the mail to come I guess.

Since this party member was in the second pool and his first choice was a bull I'm thinking this is probably what he got. Anyway, have my fingers crossed.

Jim

Jim, if you applied before the draw deadline, you will be in pool 1 next year. That's what 99z is for...

You buy your first tag which is a buck tag, and apply for the antlerless draw BEFORE the end of July -- apparently you missed that one. Then, after the MNR opens up the additional tags, you buy up to two extra antlerless tags for a total allowed of SIX extra tags but a maximum of two additional tags in any WMU. Stop by the Service Ontario desk in Thunder Bay. I think I either buy your tag for WMU8, or you have to be here to buy it. Nudge, nudge. Wink, wink.
