    Moose, deer are having babies now, calves and fawns, baby bears you name it, vulnerable to noise pollution and disturbance with the terrain completely changed and naked.

    The letter you posted had been floating around online all day, many people including myself had phoned a few agencies to question the validity of the letter.

    This^^^^^
    Also, with the Mule deer pops needing a refuge with high quality habitat, and after seeing every fire inundated with hunters with quads, trucks etc, the benefits of the fire are for not if they are all shot by so called "gut pile chasers"
    Vehicular access is precisely what the Mule deer dont need for an already struggling Mule deer population, and it would be shameful for any restrictions to be ignored by anyone.

    It looks like the map I expected last fall...
    reducing the access that was the result of fighting the fire can only be good for hunting in the future...but for sure it is going to cramp people's style.
    A trophy pic tells a lot of the hunter. There is no need to stand back or present in the best light that which you are proud of.......

    Vehicle restrictions are going to have to be part of future game management if were going to enhance Mule deer pops, habitat etc in BC.
    If the restrictions aren't observed by the Natives then were going to have a problem, and will show complete contempt for wildlife policies beneficial for the people of BC and more importantly....Mule deer. I dont consider a vehicle restriction as an infringement on an "aboriginal right to hunt" therefore should apply to all people.

    I find any further restictions on resident hunters to truly "cramp peoples lifestyle" and there is no need for it in the first place.
    Someone dropped the ball on many other fires in this province in regards to access minimizing the overall outcome of the increased habitat. The game pops will explode outside of the restricted area just as it will inside the restricted area, despite what the resident commie tells us.

    Adding to the disturbance level, the whole area is and will be getting a big influx of mushroom pickers.

    Gotta be clear like the boy says, people need to be given proper instructions as to what and how and when.
    -- Not only clear for the public but clear for the authorities to understand.
    -- C.O.s should be given a pay raise and benefit boost. Their jobs are getting more complicated as these things unravel.
    Jel -- Only way is to make all people aware and then punish any of the disobedient who refuse to buckle under --
