    Texas Creek Hunting Closure

    So have you all seen the post on fb about the Texas creek closure? Notice has just been posed, this is to protect the sensitive grizzly habitat.

    “Sekw’el’was has made the decision to enforce an emergency closure from July 31 to November n30, 2020. We have been collaborating eight the St’at’imc Chiefs Council, T’it’qet First Nation, Lillooet Tribal Council, Lytton First Nation, and Nlaka’pamux Nation Tribal Council, and Nlaka’pamux Nation Tribal Council to make this happen.”

    No usage, no hunting, no access for anyone other than “Access for St’at’lmc membership remains open for Traditional and Cultural Activiities”

    There is a copy of the letter posted as well as the notice on the post.

    No, I have no idea what you are talking about
    - When someone takes away your right to defend yourself, you are a victim.
    When you take away your own right to defend yourself, you are a sheep.
    - We need a study to study the study. If the study that studied the study does not concur with the studied study’s findings, we will need a study to study the study that studied the study.

    They will, no doubt, be using their prohibited black rifles to “traditionally harvest” their spirit animals.

    Just another nail in the coffin of freedom here in BC. This is no longer about “equality”. It is now about revenge.
    If we’re not supposed to eat animals, how come they’re made out of meat?

    Re: Texas Creek Hunting/Usage Closure

    I can't link to the fb post for some reason but I can insert some of the wording:

    Note from the original post:

    "Known grizzlies live in this watershed, in particular, a female with two cubs that are in dire need of protection; this female is known to be one of the only reproducing females left within this declining, endangered population. The area that is left within the Texas Creek watershed, identified as core/critical habitat, is intersected heavily by roads, coupled with heavy recreational use (we have been tracking ATVs and motorized vehicles for the past years now). In addition, these roads fragment the grizzly habitat, and there have been obvious impacts and behavior changes on the female grizzly as she attempts to feed her cubs in the meadows/by the lakes that ATVs, etc. drive right through. She has been displaced and forced out of foraging areas by recreational traffic pressures (keep in mind that much of the "vast area" within this watershed is rock and ice, as well). The Biological reasoning behind this closure is too strong in evidence to not proceed with this action; this grizzly population will decline into non-existence if we do not step up to make changes. We encourage further dialogue and ideas as we develop long term plans to protect and help this Grizzly Bear population to recover within this and other watersheds."

    At this time no confirmation that RSTBC and FLNRO are even aware of it.

    This crap will keep happening everywhere to keep the white man out. There is already a height of land vehicle restriction in there but I guess they are worried about the lower elevation grizzly habitat. I can understand that to a point but I hate it when they say that their own people won't be blocked access..

    Re: Texas Creek Hunting Closure

    Buddy and me tried to get up there last year and there was a slide across the road that he was scared to even try in his Land Cruiser.

    I've been along on trips where that thing could damn near climb trees, but not this time. Too many pointy oil-pan rippers on that slide.

    Too bad. I was itching to see the place again. Hadn't been there in years and years.

    Re: Texas Creek Hunting Closure

    ������������ the grizzlies have been thriving in those areas for years, there are plenty just much of it is poor access so its not realized. To start allowing for closures for individual animals is just asinine. This is just another one of a thousand excuses and areas to keep none natives out. Its a phucking travesty that its got this gar already. Special privileges are to easily excepted these days.

    That area has been logged and used for cattle grazing for years it has some delapetated mining trails, likely how the natives even found the place to use it ceremonially ......
