We would like a handgun hunting season in Saskatchewan as well as all licenced trappers allowed to carry pistols.
Handguns are safe short range firearms and we would like to have a handgun season or be included in the muzzloading crossbow season for large game. We would also like the opportunity to hunt small game and game birds with a pistol.
This would be a unique opportunity for Saskatchewan to draw in many additional resident and non-resident hunters.
The Minister of Environment is able to create this season that can be enjoyed by all hunters across the province.
Mandatory training before purchasing a handgun in Canada exists so there would be no need for additional training before participating in the season.
Due to a back injury I can no longer hunt with a how and would enjoy this close in hunting opportunity and many others would flock to Saskatchewan to take part, which would bring in tourist revenue.
I urge all potential hunters interested in partaking of this season to give the Ministry of Environment a call at 1-800-567-4224 and ask about the upcoming season.
