Moose Hunting - Relaxation of rules for non-resident hunters

QUÉBEC CITY, Sept. 16, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - Two new exceptions have been introduced into the rules governing moose hunting by non-residents. These new exceptions will come into force on September 17, 2019.

Under the current rules, a non-resident moose hunter must use the services of an outfitter, a wildlife reserve or a controlled harvesting zone (ZEC) to hunt south of the 52nd parallel, except if he or she is:

Grandparents, parents, brothers, sisters, spouse, children and grandchildren are all considered to be members of the non-resident hunter's immediate family, as are the children and grandchildren of his or her spouse.

New exceptions
The following two exceptions will also allow a non-resident moose hunter to avoid the above rule:

A non-resident hunter who holds a vacation lease on land in the domain of the State is still subject to the above rule, unless he or she qualifies for one of the above exemptions.

All the specific rules applicable to non-residents can be found on the MFFP's website.
