Applications Open for Big Game License Draw

Applications are open for the upcoming big game license draw. The deadline to apply is May 3.

Applications are available online only.

The 2024-25 moose quota for the island of Newfoundland is 27,590 licences, including 18,390 either-sex, 8,740 male-only, and 460 not-for-profit licences.

In Labrador, 345 moose licences are available for the resident big game draw.

The caribou quota on the island of Newfoundland is 583, including 373 either-sex and 210 male-only licences, an increase of eight licences from 2023-24. Caribou hunting is prohibited in Labrador.

Due to positive results from an initiative to re-introduce Newfoundland woodland caribou on the Grey Islands (Bell Island and Groias Island), a small quota of eight licences has been set for 2024-25.

To be considered eligible for the 2024 big game license draw, you must:

  • Be a resident of Newfoundland and Labrador

  • Be at least 16 years of age by August 31, 2024

  • Have a Hunter Certificate Number

  • Have already completed the Firearms Safety/Hunter Education Course or transferred hunting credentials by November 30, 2023.
