Hunting - it's a tradition in Haliburton County and with Moose season opening on Monday, October 15th it is fast approaching.
The Haliburton County tourism website has this to say about the hunting season:
Scope this out! Black bear, white tail deer, and timber wolf abound throughout the Highlands. Whether your choice of arms is a rifle, a bow, or a camera, Haliburton is the quintessential back to nature hunting experience.
