Special Hunting License Draw Alberta
Special licences are used in situations where a species (e.g, Elk) could not withstand the hunting pressure of a general season, or where they are need to meet a specific management goal (e.g., the goal in the antlered mule deer draw areas is to develop and maintain a more balanced age structure in the herd). A special licence allows a hunter to hunt the type of big game animal (e.g., antlerless elk) in the area (a WMU, a group of WMUs, or a portion of one or more WMUs) specified on the licence. This dataset displays the special licence boundaries for both residents and/or non-residents for the following species type: Antlered and Antlerless Elk, Antlered and Antlerless White-tailed Deer, Antlered and Antlerless Mule Deer, Antlered and Antlerless Moose, Calf Moose, Mountain Goat, Non-trophy and Trophy Sheep, Non-Trophy and Trophy Antelope, and Merriam's Turkey. While every effort is made to ensure that the information is accurate and up to date, it is the sole responsibility of the hunter to ensure they are legally able to hunt within a given area and to comply with the Wildlife Regulations and Act. They should not rely on the accuracy of this dataset. The Government of Alberta reserves the right to vary without notice any information contained within this dataset. Alberta has a variety of restricted hunting areas. Please review the Alberta Guide to Hunting Regulations and the Alberta Hunting Draw Booklet carefully to determine the most up-to-date information and how the various designations affect hunting opportunities.
