HUNTING ON PRIVATE LAND:

The Boreal Region has millions of acres of public land but hunters are reminded that to gain access to privately owned land or leased land, permission must be acquired before hunting. All hunters are required to follow the Alberta Hunting Regulations. You can be 12 years old to possess a hunting license in Alberta but anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or have written permission of such person.



FIREARMS UPDATE:
Even though registration of firearms was cancelled in 2012, you still need to have a Possession and Acquisition License. You cannot purchase a firearm or ammunition without one. The Possession Only License is valid for five years. You can own your current rifle but cannot purchase any more firearms unless you have the Possession and Acquisition License.
