The province's 2002-2003 hunting and trapping regulations, published in the British Columbia Hunting and Trapping Regulations Synopsis, are now 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. Hunting and trapping regulations are based on science, using the best quality data and analysis.
The complete Hunting and Trapping Regulations Synopsis and limited entry hunting details are available on the ministry Web site at wlapwww.gov.bc.ca/wld/hunting.htm  or at the ministry's regional offices. They are also available at government agent offices and stores where hunting licences are sold.
