Random draws are held each year for big game. Only resident hunters may register for two types of random draw, either to obtain a hunting licence subject to quotas (adult female moose, deer with antlers, deer without antlers [1st killing] ) or to hunt in a wildlife reserve.
The winners of a hunting licence subject to quotas will have the opportunity to hunt the animal indicated on the licence at the site indicated. Hunters who obtain access to a wildlife reserve may hunt moose or white-tailed deer in the sectors reserved for them. The Société des établissements de plein air du Québec (Sépaq) usually manages the draws. The following table indicates the registration periods and dates of the random draws.
A licence obtained in a random draw for antlerless deer in Zone 27 West can only be used south of the ZECs, wildlife reserves and Montmorency Forest.
