Territory and species
The Kensington Coop is located in the heart of one of the finest hunting area in Quebec. The territories to which it gives access covers both the region of the Gatineau Valley and the tourist region of the Laurentians.
The white-tailed deer is certainly the lord of the place. From the club you have access to more than 250 square kilometers of mixed forest (deciduous and coniferous) which is ideal for this game. We practice hunting with bow, crossbow, black powder and rifle.
In addition, since 2002, the Wildlife Foundation has provided financial support for work to enhance the habitat of white-tailed deer. These, as well as many organizations such as the Société sylvicole de la Haute-Gatineau, the Office des producteurs de bois de la Gatineau and others, have managed to devastate deer in the surrounding forest at the club.
Small game is a fun activity for the whole family.
- Ruffed grouse
- Wild turkey
Other species are also present in the territory.
