Apply Now For Antlerless Deer Hunting Stamps


Now is the time for Nova Scotia hunters to apply for antlerless
deer hunting stamps for this fall’s hunting season. There are 6,200 stamps available.

“We want hunters to enjoy a well-managed, sustainable deer hunt in Nova Scotia,” said Natural Resources Minister Lloyd Hines. “That is why we adjust the number of antlerless deer stamps in accordance with changes in the deer population and to help reduce current levels of nuisance deer.”

Qualified hunters can apply online, using a credit card for the $8.04 fee, at: http://novascotia.ca/natr/draws/deerdraw/. They may also apply by calling 1-900-565-3337 and the fee will be billed directly to the landline phone. Applications will be taken until Aug. 31 at midnight.

The stamp is applied to a deer hunting licence to provide the legal permission to hunt antlerless deer. Controlling the number of does is a major part of sustainably managing the deer population in Nova Scotia.

This year, hunters may harvest one deer of either sex with just a regular hunting licence in zone 107. A limited number of antlerless stamps are available in zones 101,102,103, 104,105,106,108 and 109. None are available in zones 110,111 and 112.

Applicants are encouraged to know the deer management zone boundaries before they apply. Zone information is at http://novascotia.ca/natr/draws/deerdraw/ddZones.asp.

The number of stamps available, by deer management zone, is at http://novascotia.ca/natr/draws/deerdraw/pdf/Deer-Draw-Info-2016.pdf.

A computerized, random draw will take place on Sept. 1. Winners will be notified by mail so applicants are encouraged to confirm their mailing addresses when applying. Applicants can also check their individual draw results online at, http://novascotia.ca/natr/draws/deerdraw, beginning at noon on Sept. 2.
