Minister's Special Licences

Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP) has made three new Minister’s Special Licences (MSL) available for 2022.

MSLs are unique opportunities that provide a hunter with the ability to hunt the subject animal with broad location flexibility across Alberta during the hunting season. Funds derived through the sale of these opportunities go back into wildlife conservation and stewardship initiatives.

The new MSLs for moose, pronghorn antelope, and Merriam’s turkey will be sold at the Midwest Chapter of the Wild Sheep Foundation’s Banquet (WSF) on Friday-Saturday, March 25-26, 2022. Bidders can be in the room for the event in Minnetonka, Minnesota, or bid online via The successful bidder can be an Alberta resident, a non-resident alien, or a non-resident Canadian. If the buyer is a non-resident or non-resident Canadian, they must use the services of a licensed Alberta outfitter and be guided by a designated guide (services not included in the sale price of the MSL).
