Hunters can access pastures in Saskatchewan that were previously part of the Saskatchewan Pastures Program and pastureland formerly managed by the Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration. For hunting on these lands, the general areas as described in the Saskatchewan Hunters and Trappers Guide remain unchanged. Generally, all are open to hunting as follows:
- Wildlife Management Zones (WMZ) 1-47 – November 1
- WMZ 54 – November 10
- WMZs 48-50, 52, 53, 55 and 68N – November 15
Some pastures may remain closed beyond these dates if livestock are still at large, field operations are occurring, or fire hazards exist.
Some pastures may open to hunting prior to these dates; however, hunters must contact the pasture manager or designated patron group member to confirm access to hunting prior to entering.
There is no baiting in community pastures without the permission of the pasture manager or designated patron group member.
Vehicles are restricted to roads and trails; however, special access conditions may be in place for select pastures.
Fires are not allowed.
Contact the district land management specialist for the area you intend to hunt. The land management specialist can provide you with contact information specific to the pastures.
