Well it has been a bit of a slow start to the season due to the backcountry closures. Currently several regions of the province do not allow any ATV/UTV use, these include Regions 3, 4, 5 & 8. Make sure you check the BC Forestry website as there are also specific areas (maps provided) that are completely closed to any access, persons included.

So far congratulations to Maddie Porter for her first Mule Deer buck, Darryl Hamilton for a nice 5pt archery Bull Elk and Ian Baird for a nice Mountain Caribou. Make sure to email/call to report your harvests and send through field pics if you have them.

Here’s hoping we get some much needed rain as I know the animals could sure use it too.

Good luck and stay safe.

Ian Baird
