Welcome to our site.
Years ago this site was set up because the wildlife resource of British Columbia is an invaluable heritage that is badly managed: The ultimate goal must be a wildlife management review with terms of reference that recognize wildlife’s true value to our province
Knowledgeable experienced hunters know that new hunting regulations will seriously compromise animal populations, some of which are already in serious decline and severely damage our wildlife heritage for future generations. If these changes were simply misguided it would be bad enough but we feel they are driven by political motives with little, if any, regard for science or the knowledge and opinions of those who are actually out there in the mountains and forests of the province.
The testimonials you will find here are a statement from quality hunters who are angry and dissatisfied and have a story to tell about declining wildlife populations.
The best of the hunting movement has always believed in the importance of stewardship: active gatekeepers of the wildlife resource, and to-day hunters are needed like never before if science not politics is going to be the driving force in wildlife management.
Please help us in ensuring that there will be a worthy legacy of wildlife heritage to pass on to future generations.
It’s now 2015 and the situation has not become any better – if anything it has become worse both in the bush and the halls of power. So we try to get the word out and carry on the conversation and collecting testimonials from those who are closest to the wildlife and see and understand the problem. Read our statements and listen to our words. Please.
In April we brought in a Biologist, Mike Pearson, to get a look and bit of an assessment of the state of affairs in our area. This was covered in local media.
Barry Brandow has something to say about Riparian Management. Management of the environment goes hand in hand with management of the wildlife. Otherwise there is no stewardship happening.
On Nov 22, 2013 a public meeting was held at the shooting range in Rock Creek, B.C. to share concerns and observations and to discuss the problems and what might be done about them.
Here is that meeting in its entirety. All 2 hours or so of it … we hope to have a list of points and times so you but at this point we do have the whole meeting for you to view and listen to.The purpose of the meeting was to allow members of the community to voice their concerns, opinions and experiences regarding the sorry state of the wild animal herds, especially deer, in the wilderness. And hopefully serve to coalesce this into efforts to get the word out to the world at large that things are not alright out here in the bush and the places where decisions on these things are made.
The 40 or so people in the audience comprised a cross section of the community: Hunters, farmers, guides, youth and even a meat processor, Many with first hand anecdotes that speak to the depressed populations of game animals. More than a few are derisive or incredulous at the statements and actions of those who are supposed to be managing these resources, the apparatus of the provincial government.
The entire meeting was recorded and is reproduced here in its entirety.
The audience / participants were given the chance to ask that their faces not appear on camera. One person elected to be obscured.
One other person’s face is obscured due to their young age and lack of parental consent
