Re: tags how dose it work
I'm from Alberta, Canada, and here we have a interesting TAG SYSTEM.
The hunting season is starting in April 1 - May15/June30 for Black Bear, up in Nord 1000km from calgary you can hunt bear till june 30.
For this you don;t need a draw system, just go to WallMart, Canadian Tire and got Your TAG ($15.00).
In some area you can get just one Bear, and for the supplementar one you have to go in another areas. The supplementar one is another 15.00.
The second part of hunting season is starting in Sept - Jan/Feb 15 and Here you can get FREE without a special application, some of the Games. For other you have to apply years to get a draw, and for another you just apply and get them in every year.
For a Bull Moose - close to Calgary 200km you have to apply in some areas WMU till 5-6 years in row to get one tag.
But if you apply for the same BULL MOOSE in Nord (800km Up fromCalgary) you get him in every year.
So here is by location.
Last year I was applying for 1 Mulley Dow in a Special Area and I got 2 for the same tag, because of undertagging applicants.
When you apply for priorities on draw system you pay $15/animal and when you got the draw another $35/animal.
About the number of animals what you can got whitout applicantion / year: so 2 black bears in the spring, or in the fall (if you don;t fill your tag in the spring you can used them in the fall), 2 White Tails Deer(Doe or Buck), 1 Buck Mulley Deer, 1 Elk Buck (for Doe you need a special application, and you can got her in every 2 years), and one Bull Moose in Nord (800-1000km up).
For the Birds, different story.
This is just rough review of our system.
They put ban on Grizzly Bear last year and we hope will be on again in few years.
In July you have to
