MNO citizens Bill and Doug Smith during thier
first harvest of the year.

Bill Smith, a former president of the Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Thunder Bay Métis Council, goes hunting every September with his brother Doug. Both are very proud of their Métis ancestry and continue to involve Métis traditions and Way of Life in their everyday lives.

This September, the two were fortunate to have harvested a moose their first time out. Bill calls for moose with a distinct call. It’s a technique which has proven to get the moose running right to him. Bill is more than willing to teach other MNO citizens how to call for moose effectively.
