Public input sought on new hunting, trapping regulations

 

Proposed hunting, trapping, motor vehicle restriction and firearms restriction regulation changes for 2018 to 2020 are now online and available for public review and feedback.

A complete list and description of the regulation change proposals can be viewed at: http://apps.nrs.gov.bc.ca/pub/ahte/

Based on regional requirements and conditions, the intent of these regulation adjustments is to promote the conservation of wildlife and wildlife habitat and optimize sustainable hunting/trapping opportunities.

Web-posting the proposed regulation changes gives hunters and trappers that are not affiliated with stakeholder groups, as well as members of the general public, a chance to have input into the regulatory process. Feedback collected through the website is used to inform final decision making.

The opportunity for public comment ends Jan. 19, 2018. Final regulations will be in effect between April 1, 2018 and March 31, 2020.
