Hello,
For armored nvm/officers and infantry ncm/officers, is hunting encouraged if living on base?  Do you still need to get deer tags or is it open season haha  ^-^
I know this may be a silly question but I am just trying to see what the attitude is like about this on bases.

Any hunting you do as a military member is subject to ALL the same rules as anyone else. Some bases allow some hunting under very restrictive circumstances for access.

They even let members of other occupations hunt on those bases as well.

And its "Armoured". Welcome to Canada.

Why would it be encouraged?  I don't think that you have a very good understanding of the Canadian military.

Even on the bases that are open may be occasionally accessible for hunting, being military does not give you an advantage in getting tags for those particular areas.  As an example, in Alberta, two bases - Suffield and Wainwright - (and actually, there are not many Canadian bases large enough and non-urban enough for hunting) are listed by the Alberta government for specific tags - DND has no input in who gets tags.  Besides the usual hunting regulations, hunters lucky enough to get tags in the draw have to abide by other rules to hunt on the bases.

CFB Borden's training area can be hunted and they have a trout pond.
