Fall Bear Hunt Begins Today With Extra Licence

The Government of Saskatchewan is pleased to announce the fall bear hunt begins today for Saskatchewan residents.  The bear hunt is open to all hunters wishing to take part with the purchase of a licence.

“Hunters can expect a promising fall black bear season,” Environment Minister Dustin Duncan said.  “Saskatchewan residents have two opportunities for bear this year in the parkland and forest fringe.”

This year a second black bear hunting licence is available to Saskatchewan residents in wildlife management zones (WMZs) 17, 30, 32 to 50 and 52 to 55, including Duck Mountain and Greenwater Lake provincial parks, Round Lake Recreation Site (portion within WMZ 48) and Fort a la Corne Wildlife Management Unit.

Saskatchewan hunters can purchase black bear licences online with a HAL account if they have a blank, unregistered seal.  Unregistered seals are free and can be obtained in a seal pack.  Seal packs are available from any Saskatchewan licence issuer, Ministry of Environment office, 10 provincial parks, ordered online or by phone at 1-800-567-4224.  Unregistered seals can be used by any person and in future years.
