Ontario Wild Turkey Course:
Effective January 1st 2017 the requirement for a course or test for wild turkey licensing in Ontario has been dropped. The Wild Turkey course has been rolled into the standard hunter education course. Students taking the hunter education program in 2017 will be licensed for wild turkey hunting. All holders of an Outdoor Card with hunting privileges have been given “grandfathered status” and can apply for a wild turkey licence in 2017 without having taken the old course or test. The wild turkey endorsement letter “T” has been removed from all Outdoor Cards renewed after January 1st, 2017. The previously purchased DVD is now available as a free service online. http://www.huntercourse.com/canada/ontario/landing-en.aspx
