350 more moose licences made available in Saskatchewan
Saskatchewan’s moose population has grown significantly over the past decade. While Chuck Lees, a spokesman for the Environment Ministry, says moose sightings used to be much less common in the southern part of the province, there’s now 10 per cent of the Saskatchewan’s estimated 50,000 moose residing in southern regions.
And that’s why names are being drawn for another 350 moose hunting licences in the province. So, those who weren’t successful in the previous draw that took place this year may still have the opportunity to bag a moose this fall. Applicants who are successful in this new draw will find out by mail next month, though that doesn’t leave much time to prep for the season.
