New Brunswick hunters can now apply for this year’s moose hunt for September.
The provincial government says residents have until June 9 to have their names drawn for one of the 5,115 licences available this year. The season runs from Sept. 26 to 30.
“Moose hunting is a fall tradition in New Brunswick, something hunters in the province look forward to every year,” said Natural Resources Minister Mike Holland in a news release.
“The 2023 draw will see the highest number of available moose licences since 1995. I wish all applicants the best of luck in the draw and hope everyone has a safe and successful season.”
Officials say Outdoors Card is required to enter the draw. Applications for a moose licence may be done online through the Department of Natural Resources Fish and Wildlife Licensing system, at an authorized vendor, or at a Service New Brunswick location.
Applications close at 11:59 p.m. on June 9 and results will be posted on July 4.
