The provincial government has announced the details of moose and caribou quota allocations for the 2021-22 big game hunting season.
Just over 28,300 moose licences are available on the island, an overall increase of 369 licences. That includes 18,165 ‘either-sex’ licences and 10,159 male licences, with 475 allocated to not-for-profit groups.
Population trends on the island this year have resulted in fewer allocations in the Eastern Newfoundland region, and increased allocations in Western Newfoundland. The moose quota in Labrador remains unchanged at 384.
The number of available caribou licences on the island remains the same at 675. Big game applications for the 2021-22 season will be mailed to all eligible hunters beginning today.
Applications can be submitted online, returned by mail or faxed.
