Hullett Marsh is located along the South Maitland River, and along the Atlantic and Mississippi flyways. It is a no-fee, multi-use, multi-season facility, known best for its waterfowl and pheasant hunting. Opportunities for wild game hunting (with Sunday Gun Hunting), hiking, horseback riding, birding, canoeing and various other activities can be found at Hullett Marsh!
In the 1970's and early 1980's, Ducks Unlimited Canada, in partnership with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, developed the man-made marsh. Today the marsh is partnered with OMNRF, Ducks Unlimited Canada and a not-for-profit organization known as Friends of Hullett. FOH deals with the day-to-day operation of Hullett Marsh. FOH consists of a board of directors, two staff, and many volunteers and members.
Hullett Marsh is located in Wildlife Management Unit 85B. ALWAYS read and understand provincial, federal, and HPWA rules and regulations before hunting at Hullett Marsh. Hullett supports Sunday hunting which may affect open season dates.
All users of the marsh MUST abide by Federal, Provincial and Hullett rules, act responsibly, ethically and be considerate of fellow users, the property, and neighboring land. Please check the Ontario Hunting Regulations Summary and Federal Migratory Bird Regulations for more information and bag limits.

Bald Eagle Buffer Zone
FOH established a 400-metre buffer zone in the fall of 2013 to protect our resident eagle nest from human disturbance. Our resident female is banded and now over 10 years old. Twelve eaglets have fledged since the Spring of 2013.
Please respect the privacy of the eagles and the perimeter around the nest site during the posted time period.
This buffer is active from February 1st to June 15th
