    Not trying to paint everyone with the same brush. Just trying to make the point that there are few people in this province who hunt compared to those who don't hunt. As the majority don't hunt, I believe we as hunters need to take care how we engage the non hunting community. They have no skin in the game and are more likely to view hunting based on emotional principles vs practical or scientific ones. Get on the wrong side of them, or disrespect them and they will turn on you. The quote above you mention was posted by another and I just used to respond back.

    Maybe down in your area you have a "Manager" who has decided to allow the hunt to continue, but up here, we don't have that "Manager" and right now it is closed. The Bio who looks after the project was instead working in the Omineca instead of up here. The argument they are using is that the Contractors don't have the authority to use helicopters; they are saying the contractor is no different than you or me using a helicopter. Aerial gunning is not the issue, its who is who is doing the shooting that they are tying up the project with.

    I haven't talked to anyone in a couple weeks, so maybe it is back on again, but in mid January, it was not.

    Cheers

    It was expected. You can't mix politics and wildlife management anymore. You can tell from the video he has no knowledge of hunting and has no interest in it.

    We need more stories/videos posted of a pack of wolves following a deer that they slashed the hind legs so bad it was walking bleeding to death. The wolves were scared off but came back in the dark and ate the entire deer, except the large bones and vertebrae.
    Or the moose cow that had been bitten and chewed on and was losing strength and the 6 wolves took her down.
    Both times no camera or gun. But I don't sled or fish empty handed anymore.
    The challenge of retirement is how to spend time without spending money.
    The worst day slinging lead is still better than the best day working.
    Look around is there someone you can introduce to shooting because that’s the only way we will buck the anti gun trend sweeping Canada! "tigrr 2006"

    The biggest problem here is our failure to see Jadresko as the biggest problem. Openly posting and boasting about all the kills one makes, and especially on social media is the stupidest thing any hunter can do. Even more so with predators. The anti hunting movement seem to have a soft spot for the critters that would gladly kill THEM.

    If we want to see hunting continue in this province, we need to control our own. That’s just the unfortunate reality.
    If we’re not supposed to eat animals, how come they’re made out of meat?

    There is ZERO chance of 'controlling our own' 100%. Even if 99.5% of hunters all condone those types of posts, dont do anything inappropriate on social media, promote positive hunting and the reasons why we hunt, and portray hunters in a perfect light, the BC govt has just shown that they are willing to make changes based off ONE individuals postings.

    There are single individuals in every single group of people that posts inappropriate things on social media. It should be a very interesting lesson for the Jadresko's of the hunting world (of which there are many) but sadly its just been proven that a single individuals actions can cause a government to make changes based on those actions. Ridiculous really.

    The Blind leading the Misinformed.

    Most of these Anti hunting specialists don't even spend a weekend in the forest never mind a lifetime. Man is here to stay. All wildlife needs to be managed. Including Wolves, G Bear and Cougar.

    Pathetic Management practices continue in this Province. And to note. It's NOT Super Natural British Columbia anymore and Never will be.
