If you are looking for a relaxing vacation, Dumoine Lake Cottages offers
great duck hunting, and for those who like to fish the Dumoine Lake
is open for business. Dumoine Lake is an exclusive rights territory
that offers an enjoyable hunting experience without the pressure of
Black Duck: The black duck is one of our most difficult of all
ducks to deceive, therefore making it the most sought after waterfowl
by hunters. The Black Duck is distinguished by its beautiful purplish-blue
patch on its wing and white on its under wings. These ducks return to
the same marshes each fall, to enjoy their plentiful food source.
Mallard Duck: The Mallard is best known for its white outer
tail-feathers and prominent white wing bar. The female Mallard resembles
the Black Duck in size and appearance, but the Mallard's brown colour
is lighter. They nest under boulders, in tree holes, in the crotch of
trees, or in open areas.
About five percent of the wild ducks that look like either Black Ducks
or Mallards, but have features of a Black Duck-Mallard pair, are the
result of crossbreeding in the wild. Hybrids are difficult to detect,
it is best to distinguish them by their mixed plumage.
It is forbidden to hunt a migratory game bird with the aid of live
birds, with a crossbow, or from an aircraft. Hunting on board a powerboat
is allowed only when the motor is not running and the boat is at a halt.
Anyone who cripples or injures a migratory game bird must immediately
take every reasonable measure to retrieve the bird.
Be prepared for the worst weather of the season, bring appropriate
clothing and dress in layers. All hunters, guides and persons accompanying
them must wear a fluorescent orange vest or jacket that is visible from
the front, back and sides. The vest or jacket must cover the wearer's
back, shoulders and chest. When worn, the orange vest or jacket must
be visible at all times. ALWAYS BE SURE OF YOUR TARGET.
