A few years ago amendments were put forth to allow Saskatchewan citizens to hunt wild boars without a licence. Season requirements and bag limits were abolished. Freedom lovers across the province rejoiced. Unfortunately, the only place wild boar congregate in the southeast is the Moose Mountain Provincial Park.

If you are planning on hunting at Moose Mountain, it is strongly suggested to contact the conservation officers. For example, although licences are not required for boar hunting, you are required to have a licence to use a firearm in the park.

Lindsey Leko, a conservation officer in Weyburn, explains, "at a bare minimum, you are still required to have a Big Game licence because you have to have the authority to be in the park with a firearm. You also have to make sure you are out of the core area to avoid other people enjoying the trails and other day use areas."

After contacting local conservation officers, they will be able to provide you with all the necessary information you will need to keep yourself and others safe and also be able to share with you where the boars were last spotted.
