Hi there,

I am looking to get hold of some wild meat for game pies and the freezer this fall. We are moving to NS from PEI next month and I wanted to check if this is legal? If so how can I obtain it?

We moved to Canada from England five years ago and my grandfather always hunted game birds and deer for the freezer, I’ve missed this since moving.

Thanks
Rebecca

The only game you are allowed to sell is bear
They kinda turn a blind eye on rabbit.
The rest you either get yourself or are given by someone who harvested it.
Where are you moving to? I know a few people who .might get a few burds, ive got hounds for bunnies, if i get a moose i can share.
This is a great site and better people who at times go outta the way to help someone
