Licences

Hunting and fishing licenses are available at the main building.

Procurement

We recommend you do your shopping in Saint-Félicien, as it is where you have the greatest selection of grocery stores and shops. As for your fishing or hunting necessities, you will find all the necessary material at the sales counter of the Domaine Poutrincourt outfitter.

See Catch and Bag Limits

For fishing, bag limits are six walleyes, six pikes and two whitefishes. If you choose a catch and release license, you are not permitted to keep any fish.

For bear hunting, bag limit is one bear per hunter (one license per hunter). As for moose, the limit is one moose for two hunters (one license per hunter). Note that the preparation and transportation of the meat are not included in the price of your stay.

Finally, bag limits for small game depend on the species. Thus, for ruffed grouse, spruce grouse and gray partridge, the overall bag limit is five per day and the total bag limit is 15. For all ptarmigan, the bag limit is 10 per day and the total bag limit is 30. In regards to other small game species, there is no catch limit.
