The Province’s 2004-05 hunting and trapping regulations, published in the British Columbia Hunting and Trapping Regulations Synopsis, are now available.
Hunting and trapping regulations are based on science, using the best and latest data available.
Most provincewide regulations remain unchanged. Regional hunting regulations change each year to address conservation and safety concerns and to allow more hunting where wildlife populations have grown.
Major regulation changes are detailed on Page 2 of the synopsis.
Hunters and trappers are advised that last year’s wildfires may have created safety hazards in some parts of the province. Caution should be used when venturing into burned areas.
The complete Hunting and Trapping Regulations Synopsis is available at government agent offices, stores where hunting and trapping licenses are sold, and on the ministry website.
The electronic version is available through the Subject Index (under Hunting) on the ministry’s website, www.gov.bc.ca/wlap .
