Sometime over the 2019 Victoria Day long weekend, May 17-20, an ATV rider or riders attended the FWDF lands approximately 1.5 miles west of Middle Lake, Saskatchewan. In doing so, the riders vandalized, stole and damaged property belonging to the hunters and anglers of Saskatchewan.
The revenue (30 %) from all fur, angling and hunting licences you purchase, is used to manage, preserve and enhance fish and wildlife habitat. These natural areas can be used by everyone including hunters, hikers, bird watchers and photographers.
There are four main rules when visiting FWDF lands:
- Walk-in traffic only (except when retrieving big game during hunting season)
- Walk-in camping only – no open fires
- No littering; and
- No interference with an authorized management treatment (ex. haying or grazing)
If you have any information, call the toll-free Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment Turn In Poachers Line 1-800-667-7561 or #5555 from a Sasktel cellphone (phone calls only, no text messages). You can also report online at saskatchewan.ca/tip. Remember, you can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward if your information leads to a conviction.
