The BC Wildlife Federation is presenting a series of six questions to the federal party leaders as well as candidates within ridings. Region 7B of the BCWF sent out the questions to the candidates for the Prince George-Peace River-Northern Rockies riding.
Twelve of 12 (100%) high blocks, 18 of 52 (35%) moderate blocks, 31 of 122 (25%) low blocks, and 10 of 59 (17%) very low blocks were surveyed. The uncorrected moosepop estimate was 1175 ± 152 (90% Confidence Interval [CI]), the estimated bull/cow ratio was 44 ± 9.9 bulls per 100 cows and the estimated calf/cow ratio was 12 ± 2.7 calves per 100 cows. The uncorrected moose density estimate was 0.20 ± 0.026 moose per km2. When corrected for sightability (SCF = 1.20) the estimated moose density was 0.24 ± 0.033 moose per km2.
A portion of Management Unit 7-42 has previously been surveyed in 2001, 1993, and 1989. All previous surveys covered the MU 7-42 area south of the Prophet River. In 2001 the uncorrected moose density was 0.75 ± 0.12 moose per km2, the bull/cow ratio was 25 ± 7.4 bulls per 100 cows and the calf/cow ratio was 18 ± 3.5 calves per 100 cows. For direct comparison to previous surveys, 2015 moose population metrics were calculated for the MU 7-42 area south of the Prophet River. The uncorrected moose population density decreased 70% from 2001 to 2015, this change was statistically significant.
The Firearms Committee believes it is important to do our own research to uncover party track records
because politicians may attempt to sweep embarrassing facts under the rug during an election campaign.
