Ken Simard, Captain of the Hunt (COTH) for Region Two, took to the skies in January.

Following his duties as COTH, Simard took part in two flights with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) to conduct a moose survey of Region Two’s harvesting area.

The COTH act as a direct line of communication between Harvesters and the MNO and MNR. They help manage the annual harvest in concert with the province of Ontario, support the implementation of the Interim Harvesting Policy and determine the appropriate management of the harvest in their respective regions.
