The BC Government, along with local First Nations, has been working on a regional moose management plan. Chris Addison will give us an update on the process and outcomes to date.

Is the government giving away your right to hunt, fish, hike, snowmobile and otherwise recreate in the backcountry?

Concerned Citizens Need to Attend the Public Meeting

Pomeroy Hotel

7 PM on Saturday, March 12, 2016.

 

The Issues:

  1. Lack of Government Transparency
  2. Lack of Consultation with Major Stakeholders
  3. Land Transfers to First Nations and Maintaining Public Access
  4. Moose Management in the Peace-Liard

Backgrounder

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.

By joining the North Peace Rod and Gun Club, not only do you become a member of the BC Wildlife Federation, but you also get liability insurance provided by Capri insurance in Kelowna. Included in that insurance is liability related to the use of off road vehicles (ORV) while activity engaged in hunting and angling activities.

If you are operating your ORV on a Forest Service Road you must:

  1. Wear a helmet
  2. Carry a valid driver’s licence
  3. Show proof of a minimum of $200,000 liability insurance. The Capri insurance covers this if you are hunting or angling, but be sure to carry both your BCWF membership card and the Capri Certificate of Insurance.

These rules are nothing new and are not related to the new laws regarding ORV registration that came into effect in November 2014. The government recently extended the deadline for ORV registration to November 1, 2015.
