The Saskatchewan Big Game Draw is opening up this Sunday, with hunters in the province having until May 25 to finish their online applications. 

Travis Williams, Wildlife Allocation Specialist, said that the draw continues to be an extremely popular opportunity in Saskatchewan. 

“Last year in 2021, the ministry received almost 124,000 applications,” he said. “And we expect this year to be at or above the same level as last year.” 

The Big Game Draw is used to allocate a limited number of hunting licenses to Saskatchewan residents in a fair manor. 

This year's draw includes licenses for elk, moose, pronghorn, either-sex mule deer and antlerless mule deer. 

Williams added that the species licensed typically remain the same in our region. 

“Those species stay pretty standard year to year,” he said. “The quotas obviously do change annually, but the species offered are the same.” 

Residents are reminded to apply early to avoid any issues that may arise in the application. 

Results will become available mid June except for pronghorn, which will be available mid July.
