The synopsis of this year’s Limited Entry Hunting (LEH) regulations is now available online, through government agents’ offices, and stores where hunting licences are sold, the Ministry of Water, Land and Air Protection was released May 3.

The limited entry hunt is a random draw system that allocates hunting opportunities to B.C. residents. This system limits the number of hunters and the number of animals harvested in specific areas.

Limited entry hunting seasons change to address conservation concerns or increase hunting opportunities where conservation interests allow.

All hunters are encouraged to carefully read the synopsis for changes to this year’s LEH. Major changes are highlighted in green.

The electronic version is available through the Subject Index on the ministry’s website, www.gov.bc.ca/wlap.

Last year, the ministry received 153,582 applications for 24,682 authorizations to hunt 10 game species.
