As we approach Remembrance Day, many of us are left wondering if hunting is allowed in the province of New Brunswick on this solemn day.
After all, it can be a special time to reflect, remember, and honour those who sacrificed their lives for our freedom.
But does that mean that hunting activities must be put on hold for the day?
Let’s take a look at what the regulations say about hunting on Remembrance Day.
Hunting on Remembrance Day in New Brunswick
New Brunswick’s Wildlife Regulations clearly indicate that there is no hunting permitted in the province on Remembrance Day.
The regulations state that “no person shall hunt or attempt to hunt any wildlife during the period from one-half hour after sunset on November 10th in each year until one-half hour before sunrise on November 12th in each year”.
This means that all hunting activities must cease at sunset on November 10th and not resume until one-half hour before sunrise on November 12th.
It should also be noted that this regulation applies to all types of wildlife and game animals, including deer, moose, bear, ducks, geese, upland birds (like pheasants and partridge) and furbearers such as foxes and raccoons.
In addition, fishing is prohibited from one-half hour after sunset on November 10th until one-half hour before sunrise on November 12th.
These regulations are in place to ensure that those wishing to pay their respects can do so without disruption or interference from hunters or fishermen throughout the province of New Brunswick during this important holiday.
It’s important to note that these regulations apply to public and private land equally; no person may hunt or fish within New Brunswick’s boundaries during this period of time regardless of whether they are doing so on private property or public land.
