Report harvest results

Mandatory reporting

You must report your big game harvest (deer, elk, moose, caribou, wood bison, sheep, goat, grizzly bear, black bear, coyote, wolf and wolverine). This includes animals harvested under a Permit Hunt Authorization (PHA) or other permit. Reporting your harvest only takes a few minutes.

Biological submissions

Some species require a biological submission along with your report. Check the Yukon hunting regulations summary to find out if you need to make a biological submission for your harvest and which wildlife parts to submit.

How and when to make a biological submission

Deliver your biological submission to a conservation officer or wildlife technician:

  • For elk: No later than 72 hours after you harvested the animal.
  • For wood bison, sheep, goat, deer, black bear and grizzly bear: No later than 15 days after the end of the month in which you harvested the animal.
  • For wolf: submit the pelt to a conservation officer by the date that comes first:
    • April 15; or
    • before the pelt is sold or transferred.
  • For wolverine: submit the pelt to a conservation officer by the date that comes first:
    • No later than 15 days after the end of the month in which you killed the animal; or
    • before the pelt is sold or transferred.

When to report your harvest

You must report your harvest no later than 15 days after the end of the month in which the animal was taken. Some species and areas require shorter reporting times. Review the current Yukon hunting regulations summary to make sure you meet your reporting requirements.

What happens after I make my harvest report?
