Cape Bre­ton moose hunt lot­tery un­der­way

Cape Breton Post - - Cape Breton -

Nova Sco­tians can now ap­ply for the an­nual moose li­cence lot­tery.

This year 345 li­cences will be avail­able in five moose-man­age­ment zones in Vic­to­ria and In­ver­ness coun­ties in Cape Bre­ton, the only coun­ties in the prov­ince where moose hunt­ing is per­mit­ted.

Hun­ters are en­cour­aged to care­fully con­sider which hunt and zone they ap­ply for. Ter­rain, ac­cess, avail­able guid­ing ser­vices, num­ber of moose and even weather con­di­tions can dif­fer con­sid­er­ably in each zone.

To be el­i­gi­ble, an ap­pli­cant must be a res­i­dent of Nova Sco­tia, have a valid Nova Sco­tia Wildlife Re­sources Card and be at least 18 years old.

Hun­ters who held a moose hunt­ing li­cence in the last five years — from 2012-16 — can­not ap­ply this year.

The ap­pli­ca­tion process closes on May 31 at mid­night. It costs $9.25 (HST in­cluded) to ap­ply on­line or by phone and $13.45 (HST in­cluded) to ap­ply by mail. The draw will be held in June.

De­tails will be an­nounced as soon as they are avail­able.

To ap­ply on­line, go to http://no­vas­co­tia.ca/natr/ draws/moose­draw/. To ap­ply by phone, call 1-900565-3337 from a land­line and the fee will au­to­mat­i­cally be added to your phone bill.

The phone op­tion does not work with cell­phones and it can­not be billed to a dif­fer­ent phone num­ber.

To ap­ply by mail, con­tact your lo­cal Nat­u­ral Re­sources of­fice.
