Big Game Management Licences Available For Elk In The Moose Mountain Area

Released on February 1, 2019

The Ministry of Environment is issuing 100 Big Game Management Licences for elk in Wildlife Management Zone (WMZ) 33 that will be valid from February 4-25.  This decision is in response to significant concerns about agricultural damage and will help reduce the elk population in the region.

Big Game Management Licences are issued by the ministry to address concerns about overabundant big-game populations.

The licences will be issued on a first come, first served basis through the Saskatchewan Hunting, Angling and Trapping Licence system at 9 a.m. on Monday, February 4.

These licences are only valid for antlerless elk within the following area of WMZ 33:

  • Provincial Highway No. 9 between Grid Road No. 711 and Provincial Highway No. 13 (east boundary);
  • Grid Road No. 711 between Provincial Highway No. 9 and the west boundaries of the Rural Municipalities (RMs) of Brock No. 64 and Hazelwood No. 94 (north boundary);
  • West boundaries of the RMs of Brock No. 64 and Hazelwood No. 94 between Grid Road No. 711 and Provincial Highway No. 13 (west boundary); and
  • Provincial Highway No. 13 between the west boundaries of the RMs of Brock No. 64 and Hazelwood No. 94 and Provincial Highway No. 9 (south boundary).
The primary tool to manage elk populations is hunting.  Ensuring that licensed hunters have a reasonable opportunity to harvest elk is important in helping reduce populations in the region and attaining long-term elk management goals.
