The Department of Environment and Conservation advises the public that effective immediately, the Nipishish Lake zone in Labrador is open for caribou hunting.
According to a news release, the department has received information that suggests the George River caribou herd has moved to this management area. Although there are some animals currently in this hunting zone, the herd is still moving and the department cannot predict exactly where it will winter.
There may not be great concentrations of George River caribou in the Nipishish zone, and as the herd continues to migrate the number of animals in the zone may change.
Wildlife staff and conservation officers will continue to monitor the movement of the George River caribou herd and additional areas may open pending the movement of the animals.
The department asks hunters to exercise caution and safety in their pursuits and also reminds hunters that it is illegal to dispose of caribou remains within 50 metres of the Trans-Labrador Highway or in an area visible to the motoring public.
