Question on moose hunt laws

6065 Views 30 Replies 15 Participants Last post by  Bull's eye
I want to know the regs for the moose hunt, as for bowhunting. this season the moose hunt is at the same time as the fall bow hunt for bear, i have my bear tag still available, can i bring my bow with me, with my gun just incase a bear walks in. I know its 1 weapon for one tag, but in this case i should be legal to bring both....if i cannot can someone show me some rules or regulation on this matter, What would one say if i went to court because i had 2 weapons in my moose spot, well there some bear at my moose spot (i can prove it with trail cams)....I am just trying to find rules on this subject...

In this heavy heavy regulated Province of NB you are out of luck. I understand your logic of wanting to bring your bow in the event that you also come across a bear, as you are hunting more than one species at a time.

From the NB Fish and Wildlife Act:

"firearm" means any device from which any shot, bullet or other missile can be discharged and, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, includes a rifle, shotgun, pellet gun, air gun, pistol, revolver, spring gun, crossbow or longbow;

No holder of a resident moose licence, a designated resident moose licence or a non-resident moose licence shall have in his or her possession in a resort of wildlife more than one firearm during moose season.
