Quebec residents with a hunter’s certificate need to buy the hunting license required for the particular game he or she wishes to hunt. These licences can be bought at a number of authorized stores or other offices (several fishing and hunting stores included). You can also buy a license directly with us at Baera Forest (in which case you must inform us in advance, prior to your arrival and extra fees apply).
At all times when you hunt, you must have the valid required license – either your own, or some cases, someone else’s (for example, for small game, an adult can hunt under their spouse’s license). For all categories, youth aged 12-17 and students aged 18-24 can hunt under an adult’s license.
Quebec residents aged under 12 can be introduced to hunting before getting their certification. This is allowed under strict conditions, such as: being under the direct supervision of an adult aged 25 and over and who meets all requirements (license for the type of weapon used, wild turkey certification if needed, etc). This particular Introduction to hunting is only valid for a single year, and is a “once only” for each child.
