Following their deputation to our club at our April meeting, here are some details of the Conestogo Pheasant Club and their 2023 Pheasant hunt.
Due to the efforts of a small group of dedicated pheasant hunting enthusiasts, and with strong support from the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH),they are pleased to announce that discussions with the Grand River Conservation Authority (GRCA) have resulted in a renewed pheasant hunt at the Conestogo Lake Conservation Area, starting in the Fall of 2023. The Conestogo Pheasant Club (CPC) will manage pheasant hunting on Area 3 of the GRCA property under a license agreement with GRCA. The CPC is an affiliate club of the OFAH run by volunteers. Their club executive are currently busy arranging the logistics of the hunt, including procurement of pheasants, building a social media presence and working on the various processes related to membership applications and payments.
Since they are an affiliate club of the OFAH, all CPC members must also be OFAH members. In its first year, the CPC is aiming for 80 memberships, and plans to expand to 100 members for the 2ndand 3rd years of the pilot project. For the first year, 1000 pheasants will be released , and the hunting season will extend from September 25, 2023 through to November 27, 2023. In its first year, hunting will only be allowed with the purchase of a season permit, but the CPC plans to examine the feasibility of daily passes in the remaining two years of the pilot program.
Applications for membership to their Club will be available June 1st on the “JOIN” page of their website (www.conestogopheasantclub.ca).
Memberships will be sold on a first-come-first-served basis.
To apply to join their club you will need your MNRF Outdoor Card No. and Expiry Date, Your OFAH Member No. and Expiry Date, and your Vehicle License #.
The CPC’s goal is to provide an accessible, high quality, and inclusive hunting experience to pheasant hunting enthusiasts in southern Ontario
