Hunting License

To hunt, a person must hold and carry an appropriate hunting licence. A hunting licence is personal. The issuer and the licence holder must sign every hunting licence. Dumoine Lake Cottages pricing does not include hunting licenses.

To obtain a hunting licence for resident, Quebec residents must hold a valid hunter's certificate bearing the code corresponding to the hunting weapon they intend to use.

Non-residents must use at least two of the services provided by an outfitter, including lodging.

Bow hunting is permitted in Quebec subject to the same regulations as hunting with a firearm. Hunting licences are available from agents who sell licences: they generally include sporting goods, hardware or convenience stores. Licences expire at the end of the hunting season for the animal for which they were issued or when the transportation tag has been removed

Hunting License Fee

2013  $158.80 tax incuded CAD per person


Any hunter who has killed a black bear must immediately detach the appropriate transportation tag from his or her license and affix it to the animal. The tag must remain attached throughout the registration process and until the animal has been dressed and stored.

Exporting Black Bear

In addition to respecting the regulations set out by the Sport Hunting in Quebec non-residents must register any big game kills at a registration office before leaving Quebec. The punched transportation tag serves as the official document authorizing the transport of black bear, in whole or in part (including fur), outside Quebec.

As black bears are protected under the Convention on International Trade in
Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES)
, a CITES permit is not required for a Canadian or American resident who is exporting, in his or her personal accompanied baggage, a fresh, frozen or salted black bear carcass (or parts thereof) acquired and possessed through legal hunting. If the bear or its parts are mounted, processed or otherwise preserved by a person other than the hunter who killed the animal, then a CITES permit is required.
