Saskatchewan will move in line with most other North American jurisdictions by introducing province-wide Sunday hunting for all game species beginning with the 2009 hunting season.
"Sunday hunting will provide economic benefits to our rural economy and strengthen tourism and recreational hunting opportunities," Environment Minister Nancy Heppner said in a Feb. 14 press release.
A 2006 economic evaluation of hunting done for the Ministry of Environment showed that the total hunting-related expenditure in the province was $107 million and hunting created the equivalent of 1,000 full-time jobs.
Sunday hunting will lead to an estimated addition $9 million in total expenditures, according to a July 2008 survey and analysis contracted by the ministry.
