Polar Bear Hunt

It is nearing the time of year when residents in the Nunatsiavut communities start the annual Polar Bear hunt.

This morning we spoke with Jimmy Goudie the Nunatsiavut Governments Wildlife Manager.

He says the annual Polar Bear hunt will start somewhere around February 1st or the 3rd and will last until June 30th.

Six hunting licenses will be awarded this year, two for Nain and one for each of the other communities.

Goudie says the licenses are currently in transit from the Provincial Government and until received, he cannot provide any further details.

So until the first week of February, keep tuning into AtjiKangitut to hear who will be awarded the licenses and other news surrounding the Polar Bear hunt.
