Wildlife baiting is NOT PERMITTED in any provincial park, provincial recreation area or wildland provincial park. This prohibition on baiting applies to all wildlife including bears, wolves and coyotes.
There are two exceptions
Parks Division manages both exceptions through issuing permits and approvals.
It may be unlawful to remove found dead wildlife from a provincial park, wildland provincial park or provincial recreation area. Contact the local Parks Division Office for more info.
In a natural area, you may be able to possess found dead wildlife or parts of wildlife if you have a permit. For more information please contact the local Fish & Wildlife Office.
Unless authorized by a conservation officer it is unlawful to dress, hang or store big game in a provincial park or provincial recreation area. Where these activities are permitted, please follow safe storage practices to prevent human-wildlife conflicts.
Bison may be hunted in Hay-Zama Lakes Wildland Park only if hunters hold a Bison Special Licence. The hunt is suspended for the 2021-22 season and no licences will be issued to ensure bison numbers can maintain a sustainable harvest.
Bison may not be hunted in other wildland provincial parks as there is no licensed hunting season for these animals.
