2007 Alberta Hunting Draws Information

Send by email Printer-friendly version Share this

Each year in June, the Fish and Wildlife Division holds lotteries or draws for a limited number of special licences to hunt various species of big game and Merriam's turkey. Only Residents and, to a lesser extent, Non-residents (Canadians) are eligible to submit applications for these draws. A Non-resident (Canadian) must apply with at least one Resident hunter in the draw for each licence for which he or she is eligible (exception: Non-resident Trophy Sheep Draw). The Non-resident (Canadian) must hunt with a Hunter Host if successful in a draw for a special licence.

Information on the draw and how to apply is provided in the 2007 Alberta Hunting Draws booklet. A copy of the booklet is mailed to previous draw applicants (within the last two years) and should be received by the end of May. If you are a first-time applicant or you did not apply on a draw within the last two years, you can pick up a copy of the draw booklet at a local licence issuer, or download a copy from this site in the Portable Document Format (PDF). The download file requires Acrobat Reader® to view and print.

The 2007 Alberta Guide to Hunting Regulations will be available in July.

If you have changed your address since your last application, telephone (toll-free in North America) 1 877 289 0999 or visit www.albertarelm.com or fill out a WIN Application form at a local licence issuer .

Information about draw statistics is available through Hunter Information.
