Kevin Aylward, minister responsible for wildlife, wishes to advise hunters that the deadline for completing the Firearm Safety/Hunter Education course for new persons wishing to enter the 1999 big game licence draw will be November 30, 1998.
"The deadline is necessary to prepare for the mailing of big game licence applications for the 1999 draw for moose and caribou on the island and for moose in Labrador" the minister said. "Persons who complete the course after December will be eligible for the big game licence draw in the year 2000."
