Hunting always has been an important means of providing nutritious food for people on Cape Breton Island. Many Nova Scotians are avid hunters, fishers and trappers, the majority of whom have a great respect and love for the outdoors and wildlife that provides for them.
At Iron Mountain Wilderness Cabins we encourage legal, ethical hunting that is inline with wildlife management plans and done in accordance with the local laws and regulations. We are very passionate about environmental conservation - having worked with local and national nature conservation organizations in the past, we know hunting can be a humane and ecologically responsible method for managing wildlife and acquiring high quality food for the table. It also helps our cultures to preserve traditional knowledge and survival skills. We are also big believers that a day out hunting is a positive experience even if you don't take one shot! There is always much to learn and appreciate while in this environment that will enhance your skills and abilities to succeed - in the hunt, and in life in general!
