    Region 6 ???

    Hey friends, been offered a really attractive employment opportunity that would require a relocation to Terrace. Just wondering what the hunting scene is like in and around the area? Aside from world class fishing, Iíve read that thereís not much for big game besides black bear and goats. How far would one need to travel to get into some decent moose and deer populations?? Any info or PMís would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.
    Huntin, fishin, and lovin every day.

    It will be better then the lower mainland lol

    in eastern 6 myself bear hunting is awesome, lots of goat opurtunity just have not explored it enough, deer is meh, and moose are around. Less of a drive to good hunting then you presently have

    Not the best place for hunting in BC but huge upgrade from the lower mainland. Way better fishing opurtunity no contest there. Outside of that just living in the area is a worthwhile upgrade

    I'd take it in a heartbeat. Houses are affordable. Dease Lake is a short drive away (compared to anywhere else in the province). You'll have to drive for deer or elk but most of us do a lot of driving every season anyways.

    Tons of bears! Good moose and goats. Haida Gwaii for the best blacktail hunting in the province with huge bag limits. Gotta go east to Kitwanga and the Hazeltons and Smithers for any mulies or whitetails (mostly on private land). Haven't hunted Burns Lake/Houston area but I'm told deer hunting is much better in those neck of the woods. Some Elk once you get past Smithers.

    I own a rental property in Terrace and plan on moving there someday. Like you said, world class fishing - rivers absolutely everywhere and not hard to get away from everyone. Its nicest part of the province IMO. Lots of large cheap acreages for sale literally on the border of town or in Thornhill. They usually get tons of snow, and Shames Mountain is the best, least well-known and least busy, ski hill in the province. Not sure if you're into sledding or not but its a snowmobiler's paradise.

    There's also been some major investments by Asian companies buying lots of land that they're developing near the airport. The city is exploring building an inland port, so shippers can divert down to Kitimat if need be instead of going straight to Rupert. Rio just spent a few hundred million upgrading the smelter in Kitimat and its now Rio's newest and most efficient smelter. And if Shell goes ahead with the LNG plant there (which the NDP gov't is supporting) that whole area's economy will be booming for decades.

    Go for it man!! Good luck

    I made the move to Stewart with my company and haven't regretted a single moment, except for not doing it SOONER. We have Grizz and Black Bears right in town and I glass goats from dining room window.

    This year the fishing opportunities are looking grim for Chinook, maybe even all species. Also there are some proposed changes to the moose hunting regulations that don't sound promising. Thankfully the bear hunting is good in the area and no shortage of goats!

    Ditto! But don’t tell anyone otherwise it will become like the lower mainland that we escaped from....
