Issuance of State Game Licences for the 2020-2021 Hunting Season
The Conservator of Forests/Chief Game Warden wishes to advise that the hunting of designated wildlife can commence on Friday 4th December, 2020 once legal requirements are complied with. This is consistent with the Government’s announcement on Saturday 21st November, 2020 on hunting. State Game Licences will be sold in Trinidad from tomorrow, (Tuesday November 24th, 2020) between the hours of 8:00 am and 2:00 pm, Monday to Friday at the following Forestry Division Offices:
|§ Long Circular Road, St. James||§ Rio Claro|
|§ San Fernando||§ Sangre Grande|
|§ Tunapuna||§ Chaguanas.|
In relation to Tobago, sale of State Game Licences will start on Wednesday 25th November, 2020 on at Roxborough and Scarborough.
State Game Licences cost $100 each (with a Limit of 3 State Game Licences per hunter). For this year’s sale of State Game Licences a numbering system with a time for collection and payment is being used so that there is no need for waiting and congregation at the various offices. Each station will facilitate on average between 100-150 persons per day. Anyone visiting the Forestry Division Offices to purchase a State Game Licence must adhere to the COVID-19 protocols, in particular, the wearing of face mask and avoiding congregation in accordance with the Ministry of Health (MoH) guidelines.
Hunters are encouraged to select a convenient day during this 8-day period before the start of hunting on December 4, 2020 to purchase their Licences and avoid crowding the Forestry Division Offices. State Game Licences can be purchased at any of the six (6) offices in Trinidad and hunters can select the office which they know from experience to have the lower numbers of applicants.
The Ministry thanks all hunters for their continued support and again wishes to remind persons to be responsible and follow the required COVID 19 guidelines, to ensure a safe and successful hunting season.
