Random draws

Big game hunting stays in wildlife reserves and at Sépaq Anticosti, as well as day fishing adventures at popular Lac au Sorcier in Réserve faunique Mastigouche, are allocated through Sépaq random draws.

Sépaq also manages random draws for special licences and trapping licences (Ministère des Forêts, de la Faune et des Parcs), as well as for private vacation lots on public land (Ministère de l’Énergie et des Ressources naturelles).

Hunting special licences and trapping

On behalf of the Ministère des Forêts, de la Faune et des Parcs, Sépaq manages random draws for the allocation of special big game hunting licences and traplines for furbearers. These draws are reserved exclusively for Quebecers.

Note that some antlerless deer special licences must be used in the Enhanced Monitoring Area (EMA) for which they were issued and are not valid for the entire hunting zone.

Big game hunting in wildlife reserves and at Sépaq Anticosti

For the exclusive use of Quebecers, random draws for regulated moose and white-tailed deer hunting in wildlife reserves and at Sépaq Anticosti aim to ensure equity of access to Québec’s best hunting grounds. See the 4 main steps of the draw.

Find out more about the new terms and conditions related to the white-tailed deer management plan 2020-2027 of the Ministère des Forêts, de la Faune et des Parcs that may be of interest to hunters in wildlife reserves.

Day fishing at Lac au Sorcier

Given the great popularity of Lac au Sorcier in the Réserve faunique Mastigouche, Sépaq holds each spring a random draw for the attribution of day fishing on this lake. There are five boats available per day that can hold up to three anglers each.

Private vacation lots

Mandated by the Ministère de l'Énergie et des Ressources naturelles, Sépaq manages the random draw for allocation of private vacation lots on public land. These lots, which are located in highly sought-after areas, generally measure 4,000 m2. With a few exceptions, these are generally wooded waterfront lots that are accessible by land.
