Hunting with your dog in a wildlife reserve

Small game hunting in wildlife reserves is a very popular fall activity. And nothing is more pleasant than being able to count on your dog to accompany you when the animal has been trained for this purpose. However, there are a few caveats to consider if you want to rely on your four-legged friend.

Wildlife reserves; shared territories

Even during the small game hunting season, wildlife reserves are shared with other users: visitors staying in the wilderness, hikers, hunters on motorized vehicles (ATVs) in certain designated sectors, and more. Caution is therefore required to ensure the safety of all.

Be particularly alert during the trapping period (taking of furbearers). To know the periods at risk, please refer to the trapping periods in Québec according to the zone in which you hunt.

Reminder: Your dog's safety is your responsibility… so be vigilant!
