Hunting Permit Application

Recent updates of the Binbrook waterfront have reported presence of green algae but does not contain toxins harmful to human health. We are currently putting a hold on the draws for the Binbrook lottery and bookings until we are able to finish any updated repairs on the hunting blinds. The NPCA will continue to work with The City Of Hamilton Public Health to confirm updated results of the water quality for next week.

We will update Hunters and Waterfowl Applicants no later than Thursday Sept. 28th.

Mudlake will resume the lottery draw.

Drawn applicants will be notified via email and will be able to make payment for their hunting blind at the conservation area (fee of $40 per blind).

We are now taking lottery applications for first two weeks of the hunt at Mud Lake and Binbrook now through Sept 1st, 2023. ClICK BELOW TO APPLY
