Hunting and Fishing
WITHIN HEREFORD COMMUNITY FOREST
The Community Forest is located in Hunting Zone 6 South. The organization currently responsible for wildlife development and management in this area is the Club de Chasse et Pêche Hereford. As a result, it is necessary to be a Club member to have hunting privileges in the Community Forest.
BECOMING A MEMBER
To join the Club de chasse et pêche Hereford:
The Club de chasse et pêche Hereford has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Ministère des Forêts, de la Faune et des Parcs in order to improve wildlife management and accessibility for hunting, fishing and trapping purposes on private land, in compliance with the rights of property owners.
Some 75% of the Club’s territory is located in Hereford Community Forest.
The number of Club members is intentionally capped at 100 at all times in order to provide members with an exceptional hunting experience.
Moose bow hunting and white-tailed deer firearm hunting normally benefit from quiet periods. In both cases, members can hunt from a hide or stalk bait-free, without being confined to limited hunting grounds.
A number of special terms apply to hunting on these grounds. Black bear hunting is normally prohibited on the nature reserve. It is important to consult the Club in order to become familiar with these terms.
Small game, wild turkey and black bear hunting are also regularly practiced.
Fishing is furthermore possible at a number of streams across the Community Forest.
Since 2020, the members of the Hereford fish and games Club have access to the Ondago application which provides three thematic maps, allowing them to move around and locate easily in the territory. This application also makes it possible to confidentially transmit observations (Signalements) to Forêt Hereford, in order to improve wildlife and forest management. This project was made possible thanks to funding from the Fondation Héritage Faune.
