BAY OF QUINTE — An indigenous hunter and trapper based out of the Bay of Quinte has a proposal for crop farmers and farmers dealing with problem predators. Give him a call.
Joseph Maracle, who is with the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte, is looking for farmland where he can hunt and trap. Because he has treaty rights, he doesn’t need any special permission to hunt or trap. “Farmers can just call me.”
He’ll go as far east as Gananoque, west as far as Brighton, and as far north as Kawartha Lakes.
He’s been trapping for about 15 years and also does some work with the Ministry of Natural Resources. “They have my contact info. When they have people with issues, they give me a call.”
It’s not a business arrangement: He’s not looking to pay, or get paid. But he does plan to take home the fur.
You can reach Maracle at 613-813-1184, or at email@example.com.
