Jesse Smith of High Prairie, Alberta was the high overall champion as the North Peace Rod and Gun Club hosted the annual Pacific International Trap Assocation shoot. Jesse has a great weekend breaking 556 out of a possible 600 targets considering the extremely blustery conditions that made the targets extra challenging. Full results.

A stratified random block (SRB) aerial survey was conducted in Wildlife Management Unit (WMU) 7-32, southwest of Fort St. John, British Columbia, on the south side of the Peace River. The survey occurred January 2nd through January 7th, 2018. Mike Bridger, regional wildlife biologist, has provided a detailed report of the methods used and results of the survey.

Executive Summary 

Mountain goats are considered to be relatively plentiful within the Peace Region; however, there is a clear need to assess the abundance and distribution of this species in order to implement best management practices. To address these knowledge gaps, a 5-year regional population inventory was initiated in 2013. As part of this multi-year project, an aerial survey of mountain goats was conducted July 18th–22nd, 2017 (Year 4 of 5) in Wildlife Management Units 7-50, 7-51, and 7-54 in the Northern Rockies (Muskwa-Tuchodi area) of the Peace Region, British Columbia. During the survey a total of 821 mountain goats were observed, 623 were adults (males and females combined) and 198 were kids (young-of-the-year). A sightability correction factor of 1.54 (assumes 65% of mountain goats were observed) was applied to the total number of mountain goats counted, resulting in a population estimate of 1,264 individuals within the study area. The information obtained from this aerial survey will be used to delineate population management units and better inform management decisions for mountain goats, including sustainable harvest levels.
