October brings deer hunting season

Posted by wlpo on October 1, 2010

Hunters are getting more time this year to kill deer at Catlin Park outside of Ottawa.

You won’t be allowed to hike at Catlin Park on Mondays through Thursdays in October to try and attract more bow hunters to handle the deer overpopulation.

Hunters also can now kill one antlered deer in the park for each non-antlered one that is killed.  Before, hunting at Catlin Park was only antlerless deer.

Another change for the upcoming season is that hunters 14 to 17 years old can hunt with a parent or guardian who is a registered hunter.
