Consultation Begins on Sunday Hunting

Nova Scotians are invited to contribute their opinions on lifting the ban on Sunday hunting.

The Nova Scotia Wildlife Act states that, for the most part, no one is allowed to hunt on Sundays. The Mi’kmaq have the right to hunt on any day.

Lifting the ban would mean that anyone with the appropriate licence could hunt on Sundays during hunting season.

“In my travels across Nova Scotia, I’ve met various people who wish to discuss the prospect of Sunday hunting,” said Zach Churchill, Minister of Natural Resources. “No decision has been made but the public consultation will provide further information about how Nova Scotians feel with regard to this issue.”

Nova Scotians can access background information and the consultation questionnaire online at www.novascotia.ca/natr/hunt/sunday or by calling 902-424-7955.

The consultation period will be open from today, Feb. 13, until
midnight, Friday, April 10.

About 50,000 Nova Scotians hold hunting licences. Depending on the species, hunting season usually runs from early September to early December.
