ENVIRONMENT YUKON






Non-resident hunters

To hunt big game, non-resident aliens must be guided by a registered Yukon outfitter. Non-resident Canadians must be guided by a registered Yukon outfitter OR guided by a Yukon resident holding a special guide licence.

Under a special guide licence, only specific species may be hunted, and only in specific areas: moose, caribou, bison, wolf, coyote and black bear can be hunted under a special guide licence. Goat, sheep, elk, and wolverine may not.

All non-residents must pay harvest fees on any big game animals killed, prior to leaving Yukon.
