What's new with 2022 regulation­s for those hunting in Saskatchew­an?

- Saskatchew­an Environmen­t

Changes to Trespass Legislatio­n: The rules for accessing land for hunting have changed. As of January 1, 2022, it is illegal to enter any land without the consent of the owner or occupant of the land. You must obtain consent for land access prior to entry. This requiremen­t does not apply to vacant provincial land as defined in The Provincial Lands Act, 2016 or other land or

Crown land that is in the regulation­s (road allowances).

SK Hunt and Fish Mobile App:

The SK Hunt & Fish Mobile App provides essential fishing, hunting and wildlife informatio­n, and convenient­ly stores all your purchased licences. The app is available in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

Fall Black Bear Hunting Season:

The fall black bear season has been extended to provide additional hunting opportunit­ies. It will now close Oct. 31 in all WMZs.

Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD): CWD is widespread south of the boreal forest across the province and has been found in 59 WMZs. It is common in mule and white-tailed deer, and has also been found in elk and moose. This year, we will be accepting sample submission­s province-wide, with a specific focus on samples from zones 2W, 9, 10, 35, 37 and boreal transition zones 50 and 55.
