TORONTO — Ontario is making it easier for hunters to enter big game draws for moose, deer and elk.
For the first time, hunters can now enter the draws online. Draws can also be entered over the phone or by filling out and submitting a paper application at one of 69 select ServiceOntario centres across the province.
Mail-in paper applications for big-game draws are no longer available.
Hunters who want to purchase their moose and deer licences at the same time they enter draws can do so in a single transaction online or by telephone.
These improvements are part of the McGuinty government’s plan to make it easier for Ontarians to access government services, when and where they need them.
“Ontario’s vast landscape provides great opportunities to get out and enjoy the many activities we have to offer. By adding an online option for entering draws, we’re making it easier for hunters to get out and enjoy Ontario’s outdoors,” Michael Gravelle, Minister of Natural Resources
