In April 2016, the Province will introduce a new online system that will improve the overall efficiency of hunter services. Initially the online service will be for Limited Entry Hunting (LEH) applications. In the future, the system will integrate a range of online services for hunters, including licensing.
Hunters will have 24-hour online access to hunting services from any computer with an internet connection and will be able to view and track their Limited Entry Hunting applications online.
To provide access to the new system, hunter numbers will be replaced with a new Fish and Wildlife ID (FWID).
Hunters with an existing hunter number will be assigned a FWID (which will include their old hunter number) and a Resident Hunting Credential. New hunters will need to register and apply for their FWID and Resident Hunting Credential.

What is the Fish and Wildlife ID?
The FWID is a personalized nine-digit identification number that is linked to a secure electronic profile. The electronic profile contains your name, address, date of birth, hunting credential, and other information, such as the status of your LEH applications. The FWID can be printed on paper or displayed on a mobile or other computing device. There is no cost to obtain a FWID.

Hunters who don’t have a computer can still access hunting services – including applying for LEH – through Service BC, FrontCounterBC or a vendor (your local hunting, fishing and sporting goods store).

The Peace area public wildlife count will take place on January 30 or 31, 2016

If you have an interest in wildlife, we are looking for volunteers to collect data on trends in population size and location of deer, elk and moose. The information will be used to help inform management decisions. There are prizes for participation.

More Information

Here is a link to a petition to Justin Trudeau to leave the firearms laws alone. The more signatures we get the more likely we are to have some success! If you agree with this, Please pass this on and share to others.

In 2005, a survey concerning the abundance of porcupines, and a possible decline in numbers, was conducted through Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, BC. At that time, it appeared that porcupine numbers had indeed declined throughout much of the province, although it remained unclear as to whether this decline was similar to that reported as naturally occurring for the species elsewhere in its range.

Ten years has passed since that initial survey, and I am now collecting similar information by which to draw comparisons. With this comparative information in hand, we will have a better understanding of whether the decline has continued, stabilized, or reversed itself. This work is being done as part of my undergraduate degree requirements at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops. The results from this survey also may be incorporated into a scientific paper and/or presentation.

Please help me by completing this voluntary 5-minute survey.

To access the survey, simply click this link https://han29.typeform.com/to/Dh17rm

If that fails to work, you may copy and paste the survey link into the address bar of your Internet browser.

By completing this survey you are giving your consent to the usage of your answers in my graduating project. Your participation will be kept anonymous.

Please report on information only applicable to yourself and only respond to the survey once.

If you know any one else that may have input regarding porcupines, please forward them a copy of this email. I may be contacted at porcupines@tru.ca for more information or a paper copy of the survey. Please also email me if you would like to request a copy of the final report.

Thank you kindly for your time and cooperation.
