About This Quiz

Canada is a paradise if you're a hunter or a fisher. The Great White North is home to 561 lakes, over 8,500 rivers and 347 million hectares of forest (to put it another way: For every Canadian, there are 10 hectares of forest, over 17 times the world average!) The sheer magnitude of Canada's wilderness can make it difficult to pinpoint a location for a hunting and fishing cabin — how can you possibly make a choice when there are so many options? To begin with, we'll ask you questions about whether you prefer trophy hunting with friends or you relish the thought of fishing in a canoe by yourself in the early hours of the morning? Is it important to have a grocery store close to the cabin, or will your cabin be the ultimate escape from your busy city life?

Your answers to the following questions will tell us exactly where you should buy your fantasy hunting and fishing cabin. The location might be a total surprise or it could be an area you've visited before (it might even be somewhere you already frequent!) All you need to do is close your eyes and imagine what your ultimate hunting or fishing expedition would look like — and how you plan to relax at the end of the day.
