Hunting Regulations

The rules of the game 

The Government of the Northwest Territories publishes a summary each year of the NWT Hunting Regulations, which provides information on licences, fees, hunting, ethics, general provisions, possession of wildlife and special area conditions. There is also information on big game species including tag and trophy fees, bag limits, seasons and a map of hunting areas. 

The Summary of Hunting Regulations and any recent updates are available online at
