Sharing an adult female moose hunting licence

This rule allows you to form a group of no more than eight hunters and to undertake to use a single adult female moose hunting licence obtained in a random draw and issued to one of the group’s members, in a wildlife reserve where the licence is valid. 

Process and conditions to meet

Such a measure is only possible in a wildlife reserve, under the following conditions:

Commitment form: When your group of hunters enters the wildlife reserve, it must give the reception officer a copy of the commitment form (PDF 79 Kb) allowing it to use the adult female moose hunting licence of one of its members. The form includes the name of the licence holder and the numbers of his regular moose hunting licence and adult female moose hunting licence, the purpose of the commitment and its duration, the name of the wildlife reserve, the date of the commitment and the names and signatures of the hunters who may use the adult female moose hunting licence, along with the numbers of their moose hunting licences.

Duration of commitment: The duration of the commitment cannot exceed the duration of your group’s stay in the wildlife reserve. All the hunters whose names appear on the commitment form and whose licences are valid may, for the duration shown, use the adult female moose hunting licence in the wildlife reserve concerned, provided its holder is present in the wildlife reserve, and until an adult female moose is killed by one of the group’s members.

Licence expiration: The adult female moose hunting licence expires as soon as an adult female moose is killed. The hunter who kills it must immediately attach his or her own transportation coupon to the carcass, must punch, in the circle provided, the licence obtained in the random draw, under which the adult female moose was killed, and must ensure that the additional transportation coupons are attached.

If the holder of the adult female moose hunting licence kills an antlered moose or a calf, the privilege for another hunter to kill the adult female moose remains valid for the duration of the authorization, provided the holder remains present in the wildlife reserve and the group is entitled to kill more than one moose.

Registration game: When the kill is registered, the hunter who killed the adult female moose must present his or her regular licence along with the adult female moose hunting licence under which the animal was killed.

In wildlife reserves where this measure is authorized by the regulations, it is up to the holder of the adult female moose hunting licence to decide whether or not he or she will share the licence with the other group members, when the group arrives in the reserve.

Your group members are responsible for complying with the limit on the number of animals that the group can kill. You must therefore ensure that you always hunt close to one another, so that you can communicate when a moose is killed and avoid multiple kills.
