Loring-Restoule has long been a preferred hunting destination in Ontario.
Governed under Wildlife Management Unit (WMU) 47 in the North Bay district of the Ministry of Natural Resources, the unit is bound by Highway 69 to the west, the Magnetawan Rvier and Highway 126 to the south, Highway 11 to the east, and the French River and Lake Nipissing to the north.
The unit covers an area of approximately 4,200 square kilometres, and is part of the Cervid Ecological Zone (CEZ) D.
Species include partridge, grouse, and moose, as well as white-tailed deer (the area is home to the largest herd in the province). Bear outfitters and guides operate in the region as well, and there is plenty of accessible Crown land here too. Outfitters may also have tags available.
Many of the area accommodations welcome hunters and hunting parties, and are equipped to handle vehicle parking requirements. For avid anglers, Loring-Restoule is a great place to fish as well, especially along the Pickerel River System. Click here for information on fishing in the area.
