Ducks come in the Fall and things got busy in Chatham-Kent. The hunting season began at the end of September and continues until late in December. Local and visiting hunters alike come to Chatham-Kent which is considered one of the best places to hunt duck and geese in Ontario. The large amount of rural land in Chatham-Kent makes it possible to enjoy hunting wild turkey, pheasants, grouse, squirrel, rabbit, hare and various other furry creatures. Goose hunting begins in January with an additional week in late February. Marshes and diverse wetlands along Lake St. Clair attract thousands of visitors each year. Mitchell's Bay on Lake St. Clair, Walpole Island along the St. Clair River and Rondeau Bay along Lake Erie are favorite locations.
There are various Hunting Camps with Professional Guides to take Hunters to various hot spots. Some hunting camps provide cabins, boats and decoy rentals. Mitchell's Bay has several rental properties available. Visit the Mitchells Bay website for more information.
Rondeau Provincial Park has a convenient Bed and Breakfast which Hunters and Bird Watchers use just outside the gates. Visit Bye The Bay Bed and Breakfast Website on Kent Bridge Rd. and plan your getaway. May is the month when the birds migrate to the Rondeau area and many birders flood the area in hopes of sighting some of the rare species who have been seen in past years.
