Chronic Wasting Disease Conference

The OFAH has released its report from the 2019 Conference on Chronic Wasting Disease.

The Canadians Concerned about CWD is a group of diverse stakeholders working to combat Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) across the country. This collaborative was formed following the 2019 OFAH Conference on CWD, where it became clear that we needed to come together to achieve meaningful action. CWD is bad for cervid species. It’s bad for the economy. It’s bad for people. This group is intended to keep interested individuals and groups across Canada and beyond connected, informed on the latest CWD news and facilitate opportunities for collaboration on public awareness and advocacy campaigns. If you would like to learn more about the Canadians Concerned about CWD or how to join, contact matt_demille@ofah.org.

Below you can read the 2019 Conference on CWD Report, which summarizes the key findings of the conference, and puts forth recommendations for a collective path forward.

OFAH/CSAAA Survey

This comes via TheGunBlog.ca:

Two of Canada’s leading groups for hunters and anglers and the firearm industry are inviting people across the country to take a 5-minute survey on their spending patterns to assess the size of the market.

The Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) and the Canadian Sporting Arms and Industry Association (CSAAA) promoted the questionnaire on Twitter last week as the government considers mass gun bans against federally licensed firearm owners.

The survey is anonymous, but if you want to be entered into the draw for a crossbow you will have to provide an email address.  (If you don’t care about the draw, you can enter a phony email address.)  The survey is here.
