MRC requests revision to moose hunting restrictions

MRC PONTIAC April 18, 2018
At the most recent council meeting on April 18, MRC council moved to appeal the Quebec government for a revision to recent changes in the laws surrounding moose hunting.
As of the 2018 hunting season, non-residents who wish to hunt moose in this province must use at least two services from an outfitter, hunt in a controlled harvesting zone (ZEC) or in a wildlife reserve.
Non-residents will be allowed to hunt moose if they are accompanied by an immediate family member who has a license from the current year. There are also exceptions that cover military, police or diplomatic personnel.
MRC Pontiac director of territory, Régent Dugas, explained that they were concerned with the effect these changes would have on seasonal residents that own cottages and hunting camps in the region.
