Members in OFAH Zone H are encouraged to join us in person for our zone meeting on Sunday, January 15, 2023 at the Bruce Peninsula Sportsmen’s Association (BPSA), which is located at 611 Northacres Road, South Bruce Peninsula, (Wiarton, Ont.).
The meeting will start at 10 a.m. and provides a great opportunity for you to connect with the OFAH at the Zone level and to hear about both local and provincial fish and wildlife issues. We hope you can come join us to learn more about what is going on in your area while sharing your passion for the outdoors with some likeminded individuals.
Among the items on the agenda will be a guest speaker presentation from OFAH NEX-GEN Ambassador Natalie Mechalko. Learn more about Natalie’s outdoors background here.
Additionally, for all OFAH members who attend the meeting, we will be having an attendance incentive draw of $75.00. So hopefully you can join us, learn more about what’s going on in the Zone and have a chance to win at the same time.

We are going to revive an old tradition. Everyone who gets a buck in rifle season, please bring the rack to our Dec 1st monthly meeting. In years past, we had all of our members bring their racks to the Dec meeting – all sizes – it was always quite the impressive display – – and generated lots of tall (white) tales 😉
We held our first monthly meeting in 2 ½ years on Oct 6/22. The November meeting will be held on Nov 17th – the week after hunting season. Please remember to take your racks to Kirk to be measured for the contests listed above.
Updated membership rates will be published after our next meeting in Nov.

A big shout out to John and Leeanne Haug for suggesting SGHA put a float in the Durham Homecoming parade. Not only did they make the suggestion but they built the float and drove it in the parade.
