Would like to know where any solid data on guides quota being reduced or not can be found. Last season was up at the cabin for a month, last few days of September and all of October. We saw 12 different bulls, 4 within bow range (1 as close as 30 ft) but no ethical shots. During the gos did not see a bull but then again there were so many hunters going mach 4 on every rd the moose were pushed deep into the timber and the rut was a good one as the early weather was fairly cold so i think the bulls were laying low. On a side note, was the first time in 15 years hunting there that we did not get a moose.

    This is where we, as resident hunters, are being screwed by the Wildlife Branch.

    The FN's don't want to be allocated 300 bulls in South Skeena. They will harvest what they want, and bulls will be 10% or less. Our regulations work because we know that. Licensed hunters can only kill bulls, the railway kills and highway kills and FN kills of predominantly cows and calves evens everything out ... and we have a good bull:cow ratio as a result ... 35 bulls per 100 cows as of this winter according to the bureaucrats. So what's the problem?

    The modest bow hunts in South Skeena are inconsequential in the harvest but large in hunter opportunity and participation. Unfortunately the bureaucrats have a biased view of it all. Their anti-hunting agenda is being made clear.

    Been hunting 6-02 for over 20 yrs. You would see moose everyday everywhere back then. Even up to 4-5 yrs ago they were still plenty. Wolves yes, hunters yes but still animals and sign. Last 3 seasons you can count the number seen collectively on one hand. All this just happens to coincide with the local FN's having taken ownership of the only barge capable of ferrying multiple vehicles across, which they did daily.

    ^^^^well with our increased dedicated funding that we should have in the near future, hopefully one of the first priorities the ministry takes into consideration is FN education, because the one time stewards of the land haven't yet figured out for themselves what their doing wrong...

    Yep Leh numbers down, FN take what they want thus game numbers dwindling and cutting off more and more land use for the rest of us , guides getting fewer tags, less game every where. Thanks

    Who is the thief ? The man who hunts for food or the ones who make him pay to hunt game for their gain for that which is not theirs to sell.
