Daily Small Game Hunting
2019 Terms and Conditions
Valid from April 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020
RIGHT OF ACCESS ON LINE: ADVANTAGE
The advantage of purchasing your right of access on line is that you can head directly to the designated territory without having to stop at the reserve’s registration centre. However, the group leader is responsible for getting all of the information about the hunting trip: weather conditions, road conditions, access, quotas, etc. To do so, we recommend contacting the registration centre before the hunting trip.
- To be able to print out your right of access, you must enter the licence plate number(s) of the vehicle(s) you will be using and the names of the people in your group.
- You must leave your right of access in plain view on the dashboard of your vehicle and have a copy in your possession. When you leave the reserve, you must also fill out the “Hunting results form” and hand it in to the reserve’s registration centre or deposit it in one of the designated boxes. Please note that this form comes with the right of access.
The price of a right of access for small game hunting is $19.04 plus taxes. Children under 18 accompanied by an adult or guardian who hold a daily right of access are admitted free of charge.
PAYMENT AND FEES
Terms of Payment
You must pay the total amount of the transaction when you purchase a right of access on line. The payment must be made with a Visa, MasterCard or American Express credit card.
