Fair Chase Hunting Regulations and Resident Hunter Blockades in BC

​In this episode Mark and Curtis will walk through each of the new fair chase hunting regulations in effect in British Columbia this year. Part of this conversation will include what the new regulations are as well as how the decisions were made. Topics covered include e-bikes, wireless trail cameras, primitive weapons, smart rifles, drones, spotting from an aircraft, intentionally feeding and baiting wildlife and the cougar pursuit season. Other pre-season primer topics that the guys discuss include what you need to have with you while hunting, bag versus possession limits, legal tines, transporting someone else’s game and whether you can shoot ear-tagged or collared animals. To round out the podcast the hosts kick off the controversial conversation that few people are willing to talk about – the blockade of resident hunters from going on DIY hunts in Northern BC. In this discussion Mark and Curtis pass along updates on reports coming out of Northern BC, the travel advisory issued by the Tahltan Central Government, how much you might have to pay to hunt up North and what the harvest stats are saying about resident versus non-resident harvest levels. Finally, this episode will leave you with ideas of what you can do if you care about protecting your access to crown land.
