2011 MESSAGE ARCHIVE


This is a proposed change to the Cranbrook Management Unit:

http://a100.gov.bc.ca/pub/ahte/hunting/change-mule-deer-seasons-cranbrook-game-management-zone

Maybe one the Club should ask to be implemented here as our Mule
Deer numbers aren't what they used to be?


The December Rod and Gun meeting will be held a little early this year. It will be at 7:30pm on Wednesday Dec 14th! As always, it will be downstairs in the Senior's Hall. There will be refreshments for 8:30pm so feel free to bring your Wife/Husband/Kids!


Also, check out this excerpt from the 2010-2012 Regulations Synopsis! This update does not appear in the written regulations, but has been released online! There is a BOW ONLY SEASON for WHITE-TAIL deer (either sex) in Region 4 from DECEMBER 1 to DECEMBER 20! Check THIS LINK out to see all the information.


The next RAGC meeting is set for Wednesday Nov 30th in the Senior's Hall basement. We will also be judging photos for the Lower Arrow Lakes Conservation Assosciation annual photo contest!


A new, permanent public engagement website will give British
Columbians an opportunity to review and comment on proposed angling,
hunting and trapping regulations.

Regulations for angling, hunting and trapping are reviewed and developed
every two years, with alternating years for fish and for wildlife. The
website ensures the public can review and submit comments on proposed
regulations, over and above government's regular face-to-face stakeholder
consultations.

The website http://a100.gov.bc.ca/pub/ahte/ is part of the ministry's
ongoing efforts to enhance public engagement and create a more efficient
and productive regulations-development process. New angling, hunting and
trapping advisory teams have also been created to guide regulations
development in collaboration with stakeholders.

Proposed regulations will be posted to the website for review and comment
for approximately two to four weeks, depending on complexity. Each posted
regulation shows the species, region, review period closing date, as well
as a clear summary of the existing regulation, proposed regulation and the
rationale for the change. Registered users can choose to receive email
updates informing them of new proposal postings.
