Did you know that the Old Cut Boat Livery is the only licence issuer on Long Point Bay? Due to changes to the licensing system, buying a fishing or hunting licence is not as easy as it used to be. The number of issuers has dwindled. But we’ve got you covered.
You can also purchase your fishing or hunting licences and outdoor cards online at https://www.huntandfishontario.com/.
The new 8.5″ x 11″ paper licence that you are required to carry may be a pain. But the ministry has also agreed to allow hunters and fishers to carry their licence on their smart phone. Here’s some important information you must know if carrying your licence electronically.
- You MUST carry the original document. It cannot be a screen shot or a photo of the licence. Either keep the original email on your phone or save the PDF file to a place on your phone like iBooks (for apple users).
- If your phone dies, you will need to provide a hard copy.
- Hunting tags cannot be sent or displayed electronically, it must be a hard copy.
- You can get a copy of your licences from an issuer or online at any time.
Remember – your outdoors card is valid for 3 years. Even though your card is still valid, this does not mean your licence is.
We highly recommend if you are in need of a new card, that you buy yourself a 3 year licence at the same time. This way, your licence and card expire at the same time, and you will not be required to carry a full page of paper around once your new card is issued to you.
If you have questions or need to verify your licence is active, you can do so online at https://www.huntandfishontario.com/ or stop by and see us, we will be happy to help.
