Hunters looking to score big game wildlife will have another opportunity this month. The Ministry of Environment, as of today, is releasing 100 big game management licences for elk, that will be valid only until February 25, 2019.

The licenses come after concerns were raised about the agricultural damage in the area encompassing the Wildlife Management Zone (WMZ) 33. Hunters in the west central region will have roughly a six hour drive ahead of them to reach WMZ 33, which surrounds Moose Mountain Provincial Park in the southeast corner of the province, including:

• Provincial Highway No. 9 between Grid Road No. 711 and Provincial Highway No. 13 (east boundary);
• Grid Road No. 711 between Provincial Highway No. 9 and the west boundaries of the Rural Municipalities (RMs) of Brock No. 64 and Hazelwood No. 94 (north boundary);
• West boundaries of the RMs of Brock No. 64 and Hazelwood No. 94 between Grid Road No. 711 and Provincial Highway No. 13 (west boundary); and
• Provincial Highway No. 13 between the west boundaries of the RMs of Brock No. 64 and Hazelwood No. 94 and Provincial Highway No. 9 (south boundary).

The licences will be available on a first come, first served basis at 9 a.m. February 4, 2019, through the Saskatchewan Hunting, Angling and Trapping Licence system.

The Ministry proclaims hunting is a primary tool in managing elk populations and ensuring licensed hunters have reasonable opportunities is important for attaining long-term elk management goals.
