Hunting Fever Strikes: New Brunswick’s Moose-t Awaited Season Kicksoff

The province of New Brunswick has opened applications for the 2023 moose hunt season. This highly anticipated event is a beloved fall tradition among hunters in the region. The Minister of Natural Resources and Energy Development, Mike Holland, has expressed his well wishes to all applicants for a safe and successful season.

Moose hunting holds a special place in the hearts of New Brunswick residents. The thrill of the hunt and the beauty of the natural surroundings make it an unforgettable experience. Hunters eagerly await the opportunity to participate in this longstanding tradition every year.

In an effort to enhance the hunting experience and accommodate more participants, the number of available moose licences for 2023 has been significantly increased. This year, there are a total of 5,115 licences up for grabs, marking the highest number since 1995. This increase presents a unique chance for more individuals to join in the excitement of the hunt.

The 2023 moose hunting season will run from September 26th to September 30th. It is crucial for hunters to mark these dates on their calendars to ensure they are fully prepared and available for the duration of the hunt. This limited window of opportunity adds to the anticipation and adventure accompanying the moose hunt.

Before participating in the draw, hunters must obtain an Outdoors Card. This card serves as a free identification card and is a mandatory requirement for the application process. Hunters can register for an Outdoors Card conveniently online through the Fish and Wildlife Licensing system. Alternatively, they can visit an authorized vendor or a Service New Brunswick center in person to complete the registration process. It is important to provide proper identification during registration to ensure accuracy.

To be considered for a moose licence, applicants must pay a non-refundable fee of $9.55, which includes HST. Applications will be accepted until June 9th, with a closing time of 11:59 p.m. Hunters must submit their applications well in advance to avoid any last-minute issues or delays.

The results of the moose draw will be announced on July 4th. Applicants eagerly await this day to discover if they have been selected for a licence. The anticipation and excitement build up as hunters envision the adventures that lie ahead in the upcoming moose hunting season.
