No Christmas goose this year? Hunter says Post Office has run out of migratory bird permits three years in a row

No Christmas goose this year? Hunter says Post Office has run out of migratory bird permits three years in a row | NWT News | Scoop.it

"(Canada Post is) the only supplier and yet they do not supply enough. This has happened for at least three years in Yellowknife -- that they sell out in the first or second week of the season and it takes weeks for them to stock up again," said Tia Hanna who has used the permits to hunt geese and ducks for the past 13 years. "In Yellowknife, we pretty much have a month of duck-hunting season, so you could have 50 to 80 per cent of your season written off."

Northern_Clips's insight:

"A lot of people here are sustenance hunters and we're doing it as part of our spiritual existence; it's not just a sport – and even to feed our families," she said.
