The wait is over for you Canadian waterfowlers.
As of July 14th, 2011 Environment Canada has posted the national regulations here for 2011-2012. The provincial links are all there for the viewing at the landing page, so I won’t bore you all by re-posting them all here province by province.
Usually it takes a day or two for the licenses to be distributed, but based on the phone conversation I had with Environment Canada today, all the licenses should be out and available for sale by mid-next week, if they are not out at some distributors already.
This is as sure a sign that autumn is coming as I know, and I couldn’t be happier.
