There are excellent hunting spots to be found within close range of every community in Nunavut. Just like their ancestors did, most Inuit families rely heavily upon the sustainable food resources of animals that are harvested nearby. Hunting seasons and quotas are rigorously enforced by Nunavut Wildlife Officers and mandatory tags are often only issued by a lottery system run by the local Hunting and Trapping Organization (HTO).
Visitors wishing to hunt in Nunavut are required by law to use licensed outfitters. Mandatory hunting licenses and tags must be acquired before embarking on the hunt. Hunting seasons and quotas are strictly enforced by Nunavut Wildlife Officers.
