First of all there is no such thing as hunting of nuisance wildlife; there is nuisance wildlife control which is something completely different and only applies if certain species are damaging property or otherwise causing a substantial problem.

I assume you are refering to varmint hunting which includes crow, coyote, etc. You can get a varmint license and actively hunt for these species...see hunt summary 2012. As for Sunday Hunting, please see below.


From the 2012 NB Hunting Summary:

Hunting is prohibited on all Sundays except those that occur between October 28 and November 17 in any year.


It doesn't matter who's land you are on, hunting is hunting.

There is a list of animals on DNR website that are considered nuisance wildlife. You can kill these animals on your own property by any means you want any day of the year. The only thing you cant do is shoot them at night. Regular hunting laws do not apply to these animals on your own land and for technical purpose any land which the owner has asked you to remove theses animals and you are not getting paid. If you are being paid then you need a licence. Hope this clears up your misunderstanding.

4evrhntn, where can I find this information you are sharing? I just checked DNR website and there wasn't much about nuisance wildlife or private property. Everything I read stated you needed a course and a license. I realize everything isn't on the site and that's why the original question. In the past I've hired nuisance trappers, as I thought that was the only legal way to get rid of these animals.

Seely's cove hunter, I did see that in the act. Trappers can now carry a cased 22 rinfire on Sundays and after dispatching a trapped animal the firearm must be cased, again.

I don't represent any organization on here, just myself. I read and know the laws as should anyone that chooses to take up our sport. Just don't want to see a guy get nailed for doing something illegal. I think the other posts should have cleared it up for him too.

Merry Christmas Everyone...hope there is something good under the tree!

The law is very clear and if not understood your best bet is to call a DNR office and get your questions answered from the horse's mouth...better yet, email someone and get it in writing.

There's more to the Act...You need written approval from the Minister with terms and conditions attached.

34(6)A person may apply in person or in writing to the Minister for written authorization to hunt, trap, snare, remove or relocate any wildlife referred to in subsection (5), or any other wildlife, that may cause damage to private property or injury to owners of private property or owners or occupants of private land.

34(7)Notwithstanding subsections (2) and (3), the Minister, if satisfied that the hunting, trapping, snaring, removal or relocation of wildlife proposed under subsection (6) is necessary for the prevention of damage to private property or injury to owners of private property or owners or occupants of private land, may give written authorization to the applicant, authorizing the applicant to hunt, trap, snare, remove or relocate the wildlife, in accordance with the regulations and with the terms and conditions set out in the written authorization.

34(6)A person MAY (Verb: Expressing possibility ) apply in person or in writing to the Minister for written authorization to hunt, trap, snare, remove or relocate any wildlife referred to in subsection (5), or any other wildlife ( Example :Deer, Bear...etc )

Meaning that if you have say bee's and a bear is wreaking havoc of your hives you could go to DNR and request written consent to Shoot the bear, you do not need written consent if you shoot a coyote that was trying to haul off a sheep on a sunday afternoon... although you could go to DNR and request written consent to take care of the problem......with your 308

"Nuisance Wildlife Control Regulation - Fish and Wildlife Act", Regulation 97-141

If you read this section of the Act, you will notice that "No person shall operate a nuisance wildlife control enterprise, or hunt, trap, snare, remove or relocate nuisance wildlife as the employee of a nuisance wildlife control enterprise, unless the person is the holder of an operator’s licence."

This has nothing to do with being able to hunt a nuisance wildlife on your own land on sunday?
