About hunting in Quebec
The largest province in Canada, Quebec is located on the eastern side of the country and covers an area nearly three times the size of Texas, most of it sparsely populated. Its population is primarily French-speaking. Quebec’s geography is widely varied, from heavily wooded regions in the south to the scenic mountains along the east coast to the vast, uninhabited tundra regions in the north. The Quebec-Labrador caribou used to be Quebec’s primary big-game hunting draw, but reports of decreasing numbers of caribou recently led to the government curtailing these hunts. 2017 is the last year for nonresidents to hunt caribou in Quebec; the province has announced that there will be no caribou hunting for at least the next two years. However, Quebec still has excellent hunting for white-tailed deer, moose, black bears, waterfowl, upland birds, and small game. Moose hunting in Quebec can be a great value, especially if you can get a group of hunters together. Hunts are conducted in wooded areas far off the beaten track and are usually conducted from stands or by calling. Black bear hunting is excellent in Quebec and bears are plentiful; both spring and fall seasons are offered. Tags for both moose and bears can be purchased over the counter. Most bear hunts are conducted over bait. Bear hunts are typically morning and evening affairs and can easily be combined with fishing for pike, walleye, perch, or other species. White-tailed deer hunting can be found throughout the southern regions of the province, but the most famous destination for whitetails is Anticosti Island in eastern Quebec. Whitetails were brought to the island in the 1800s and some 200,000 deer thrive there now in the heavy forests and swampy bogs. There are several ways to hunt Anticosti, including stand hunting, still-hunting, glassing and stalking. Accommodations range from basic to luxury, and while all hunts are outfitted, you may hunt either guided or on your own. Quebec is famous for its excellent wingshooting, particularly for ducks and greater snow geese, as well as hunting for upland birds including ruffed grouse, spruce grouse, ptarmigan, and woodcock. Nonresidents of Quebec are required to hire an outfitter to hunt most big game, and fluorescent orange must be worn for rifle big-game and small-game hunting. Quebec is divided into 29 hunting and fishing zones (zone 25 is fishing-only). Hunters must abide by the rules of the zone they are in.
