MAY 17, 2013


The 2013 Big Game Draw is open until June 17 for Saskatchewan hunters.

“Our province is blessed with abundant sporting opportunities,” Environment Minister Ken Cheveldayoff said.  “Best of luck to those participating in the 2013 Big Game Draw and I wish all hunters an enjoyable and safe season.”

According to an evaluation conducted by the Ministry of Environment in 2005, it was estimated that hunters contribute $107.5 million to the economy annually through their sporting activities - approximately eight per cent of the total amount spent on all tourism activities in Saskatchewan.  Much of this expenditure generated economic benefits to rural areas across the province.

All hunters on the draw application are reminded they must have their own unique Hunting, Angling and Trapping Licence identification number (HAL ID) and are urged to obtain one before applying for the draw to avoid complications with their application.

Hunters can receive a HAL ID:

  • Online at 
  • Through private issuers, ministry offices and select park offices; or
  • By phone at 1-855-848-4773 between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. (CST)

Starting this year, licences will not be mailed automatically to successful applicants as the HAL ID allows licences to be issued via the automated licensing system.  Information on who was successful in the draw will be posted on both the big game draw site and on an individual’s HAL account starting mid July.

“This new online system complements the government’s Plan for Growth,” Cheveldayoff said.   “It is designed to improve service to our citizens and tourists, provide accurate and timely data for improved management of our natural resources, and improve the efficiency of compliance and enforcement.  It provides real time financial, resource and enforcement data and robust reporting and analysis functions.”

The 2013 Saskatchewan Resident Big Game Draw Supplement is available  This supplement contains information on the quotas and season dates for this year.

A complete listing of licence issuers is available at
