A tag is required to purchase:
- a bear, moose, or deer hunting licence;
- a resident turkey hunting licence; or
- a salmon angling licence, if you intend to retain a landlocked salmon having a fork length (distance between the tip of nose and fork of the tail) of 48 to 63 cm.
Tags are not required for small game or varmint hunting licences, or for most types of angling licences. This includes licences for sea-run Atlantic salmon, which must be live released by anglers.
