BC Resident Action for Mountain Sheep or RAMS was started in the mid 1970’s in Fort St. John by a small number of resident hunters over a concern on the impact by the guide outfitting industry on mountain sheep populations and resident opportunities.┬áMembers of the RAMS executive met with elected government officials in Victoria and the concerns expressed were largely ignored. The lack of action on behalf of residents by government resulted in a media campaign in the form of a series of news papers that were distributed to the majority of sheep hunters around the province. This media campaign and the accompanying pressure from resident hunters got the attention of government and ultimately lead to guide outfitters going on quota for Stone’s Sheep.
