    WSSBC - Large Carnivore ban

    Received an email this morning from the sheep society. A friend Omer of precision optics heard of it and brought it to our awareness.

    A group is attempting a ban on hunting of large carnivores, here’s the statement from the sheep society;

    Thinly veiled under the guise of conservation, a concerted attack is now in place against ‘large carnivores’- specifically named are black bears, cougars, wolves and elk as they are mentioned as ‘trophy hunted only’.Noted in this same push by anti-hunting groups are bighorn sheep, part of our very life blood as an organization. We know firsthand that these sheep are so much more than the ‘trophy’ as claimed- that they are an icon of the hills that we care so passionately about. And that through our annual sheep counts as volunteers, know that there are no dangers of extirpation.’

    Follow the link below to send an email and help out, sitting on our hands won’t assist us. It takes less than 3 minutes!

    Hi HankBC,

    Thanks for sharing this! Sent! Is there any info on who owns this anti hunting campaign and how far the reach is?

    We should however also aim for change in the own corner, as this entire movement is solely initiated by unnecessary social media provocation of a Vancouver island huntress.
    It outrages me that the biggest threat for hunting comes from within, by unfortunate and unmindful Instagram posts. We all pay the price.

    Done! Thanks HankBC for the heads up. NEVER allow the anti's to take the moral high ground. NEVER hunt or fish unethically. NEVER forget that the animals come first, and if we take care of them they will take care of us. NEVER EVER give up your right/privelege to hunt.

    done, thanks for sharing!!!!!!!

    Also just joined and donated to the WSSBC. I'm not a sheep hunter but it's obvious this organisation is involved and trying to do something for BC hunters.
