Some Changes As Hunters Gear Up For Moose Season

Moose season runs from next Thursday until Saturday--and with over 4600 licenses being given out this year, the Department of Natural Resources has set up a number of new registration stations so that hunters can get their moose registered quickly.

The new private moose registration stations are in Neguac, Saint-Paul, Tay Creek, McAdam, Saint- LĂ©onard and Edmundston. Moose can also be registered at 17 department offices throughout the province. Time is of the essence to get moose to a butcher shop after they are shot for safety reasons and it's hoped the new stations will cut the wait time. 

A change in the moose hunting rules is also making it possible for a previously chosen hunter to be issued a moose licence in the event of the death of the primary licence holder before  moose season. The change will come into effect in time for this fall's hunt.
