Important changes for 2017-18

The following regulations come into effect August 1, 2017:


Online harvest reports

If you have a hunting eLicence, you can now submit your harvest report online here or by logging in to your Environment eServices account.

You must still deliver compulsory submissions to a Conservation officer or wildlife technician within the required time limits (see page 21 of the current Yukon Hunting Regulations Summary booklet for details).


Sheep Mountain sheep - hunting closure

An immediate closure of sheep hunting adjacent to Kluane National Park, Sheep Mountain, is in effect August 1, 2017 to October 31, 2017, unless otherwise determined through a revision of this closure.

The closure includes the portion of Game Management Subzone 5–21 bounded on the north by Congdon Creek (km 1666), the south by Slims River Bridge (km 1648), and the eastern boundary of Kluane National Park.

This closure is an urgent measure to facilitate conservation of the Sheep Mountain sheep population. For more information, contact the Department of Environment.


Faro moose threshold hunt

Harvest limit has been reached. Moose hunting is now closed for GMS 4-44 to 4-46.

A harvest limit of 15 moose has been set for Game Management Subzones 4-44 to 4-46. The season is closed to licensed moose hunting now that the limit has been reached. Hunters must report their harvest within 72 hours. The Department of Environment will process these reports as they are received.

For more information about the threshold hunt please refer to page 37 of the 2017-18 Yukon Hunting Regulations Summary.
