If you are up on Hunters Mountain you will notice that there are more patrols than you are used to.

The increased patrols are part of an effort to enforce new Mi’kmaw rules governing the harvesting of moose in Unama’ki.

A valid Mi'kmaw Status card is the only ID accepted. ATRA cards are not.

UINR Moose Coordinator Clifford Paul, “The Mi’kmaq are the only rights-holder in the province, and rights-based hunting and accessing natural resources are determined by us.”

Clifford and any of the people mentioned in the news release will be happy to answer any questions you might have.
