Hunters urged to ‘respect the law’

Hunting season can be safe and profitable, but hunters are being urged to respect the law at all times.

This was the advice from Secretary of the Division of Agriculture, Marine Affairs, Marketing, and the Environment Godwin Adams ahead of the 2016-2017 hunting season, which starts on October 1, 2016 and ends on February 28, 2017.

“Cooperate with laws and regulations by submitting a data form on time,” Adams said during yesterday’s (September 21) post Executive Council media briefing at the Administrative Complex, Calder Hall. The forms enable hunters to list the animals they catch, so the Division can keep track.

Adams also announced that the price of hunting permits has increased from $20 to $100.

Interested persons can apply for game licenses from Monday (September 26, 2016) at Revenue Collecting Offices at the Victor E. Bruce Financial Complex, Scarborough, as well as Roxborough, between 8 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

Applicants must present one form of photo identification and a recent utility bill.
