With continued restrictions in place for public gatherings and events, Holiday Beach Conservation Area’s hunting programs have converted to a digital platform.  For the 2020-2021 season, blinds will be available to book through a new on-line booking reservation system.  Only full day rentals are available for the 2020 season.  This system will become available for hunters to use beginning at 10 am on Saturday, September 19, 2020.

Blinds will be available on a first come, first served basis, up to a maximum of 3 blinds per hunter until October 10, 2020.   After October 10, hunters may book additional blinds without restrictions.

Once blinds are successfully booked, dash card permit(s) and gate access code to gain entry will be emailed.  Hunters will be required to print and display this permit on their vehicle dash, visible in the front windshield.

To book a blind, hunters must have a valid Ontario Outdoors Card.  The fee for a full day blind rental is $55, and a registration fee of $17 applies.

A map of the blinds and a full list of rules and regulations can be found at essexregionconservation.ca/hunting. The online booking feature will be enabled at 10am on Saturday.

Since 1973, Essex Region Conservation has been enriching and sustaining our region as the Place for Life.
