Permit hunts are used to limit hunting for areas and/or species in order to manage overall population numbers and improve hunt quality.
Please refer to your Hunting Regulation Summary  for season dates and bag limits for each species in each of Yukon's 11 Game Management Zones. You must hold a Permit Hunt Authorization (PHA) if you want to hunt moose, caribou, sheep, goat, deer or elk in a permit area.
Environment Yukon received 2,193 applications, of which 118 were joint applicants. The permit draw results are as follows:
If you have secured a PHA through this lottery but do not intend to use it, you may voluntarily return the permit by Friday, July 8. While you will not get your application fee refunded, you will have your name weighted in future draws as though you were unsuccessful in this year's draw.
As a result of the Canada Post labour dispute, the usual practice of returning the PHA to an Environment Yukon office within 10 days of date of mailing is not possible this year. Environment Yukon staff will be phoning successful applicants to find out if you intend to use your PHA.
Remember: holding a permit is not a guarantee of hunting success.
