Saskatchewan Hunting License Laws

Hunter Education Requirements

Anyone born after January 1, 1971, must graduate from a Firearm/Hunter Education course in order to hold or apply for a Saskatchewan game or fur licence. These individuals should be prepared to present proof of training when purchasing or applying for a licence.

Minimum Age Requirements

You must be 11 years of age or older to take a hunter education course in Saskatchewan.

Students must be a minimum of 12 years of age to legally purchase a hunting licence. Youth 12 to 15 years of age must have a parent or guardian complete the consent portion of the Saskatchewan Wildlife Habitat Certificate. While hunting, the youth must be under the direct supervision of an adult who is at least 18 years of age.

Hunter Orange Requirement

When hunting big game with a rifle, hunting in a designated rifle-only season or accompanying a rifle hunter, an outer suit from the waist up of scarlet, bright yellow, blaze orange or white or any combination of these colours must be worn. Coloured vests are not considered a complete outer suit from the waist up, and therefore are not acceptable.
