This branch of Ta na wa Yúus ta Stitúyntsam̓ is responsible for:

  • Fisheries
  • Hunting
  • Forestry
  • Guardian Program

The elk tag draw is conducted once a year for eligible Nation Members with a valid Personal Acquisition License (PAL). Tags are non-transferable and each tag is allocated for specific Hunting Zones where safety and non-shooting areas must be respected at all times. Poaching continues to be a problem; we are all responsible to co-manage our elk populations in our homelands. All hunters must comply with compulsory inspection of harvested elk and failure to do so will result in ineligibility for future Squamish Nation elk draws.

Draw Rules:

  • Please pick the location(s) where you want to hunt.
  • One name is drawn for each tag.
  • Tags are non-transferable.
  • You MUST have a valid Personal Acquisition License (PAL) to receive a tag.
