I live in Lansing Michigan and want to explore Canada. Anybody travel to Laurentides Wildlife Reserve? I would like to get away during the colder months maybe november when I have a small break from school. I was checking Quebec 's small game hunting licenses as well. $92!! Ill be bringing my air rifle and if a mountie asks i could just say im target practicing when in actuality id prolly use it to bring in a few rabbits. Also, $68 for fishing?! Ill pay the 30 for the mandatory release and just eat em

Get a job, work a few hours, and don't be a leech. Getting caught poaching will almost surely cost you way more than the $130 you'll be "saving"

My point is that its not even worth bringing my gun if Im paying for a $92 rabbit meal. I looked at lake superior provincial park now as its half the distance compared to quebec.

Id be going when there are few people (late fall right after the first frost) and hiking the coastal trail so there will be less scrubs to bitch and complain. How about we have a constructive discussion on how not to pay Canada's ridiculous fines and stop trying to protect your forest friends you hippy faggot

Missed the mark there, leech. This year will be my 21st hunting season. I'm all for killing and eating animals. I just hate poaching faggots like you who think that just because the fees are "ridiculous" they can do whatever they want.

If you don't want to pay the licensing fees, great, don't... just leave your rifle at home and leave the wildlife alone. You can probably buy the entire food bill for your trip with the licensing money that you are so reluctant to spend. Why should you, a guest in a foreign country, be entitled to steal game from those who elect to honor their role as a responsible sportsman? Do you not realize that licensing fees are an integral part of wildlife management programs?

If you weren't asking for law-breaking advice on 4chan you could be out earning that money instead, like a law abiding and respectful adult, and this entire thread would be a moot point.

If you don't want to spend the coin, don't hunt. Easy. Go hunting at home where the fees are easier on your unemployment-tier wallet.

hunting and fishing are luxury activities. you gotta pay to play, and basically any time you leave your home state, the fees are going to fuck you in the ass. it's one thing if you have to hunt to avoid starving to death, but just wandering around shooting game without a license because it makes you feel like survivorman is upstanding urban gentleman tier.

OP, /out/ hates poaching threads. I'm going to assume you're talking about doing some "survival" hunting. Like you need a backup if you run out of food and it's cold out.

I've had good results with a slingshot and lead balls. Very quiet, small in the pack, doesn't draw attention like toting a rifle, plenty of power for rabbit and grouse.

OP here

What about areas in the States with backpacking trails more than 50 miles long? Remember I'm in lansing mi so anything within a 6 hour radius of where I live is preferable. The theme of this trip is still "survival" hunting but Ill pay to play within the states. I've invested $800 into my HW80 so I want to get more use out of it.

There are a shitload of national forests and state forests in Michigan. All of which are probably legal to backpack, camp, and hunt in.

Seriously though, for what it's worth the hunting and experience will be a lot better if you get off the main trails.
