    Re: Bow hunting near Langley

    Look at the Fraser Valley Special Area hunting brochure, it will show you where you are allowed to hunt, some of the agricultural land around Aldergrove is open to hunting during open seasons, the map shows it specifically. So this would be in and around the Langley area. But the trick will be finding land owners who will let you their land!

    Not a problem if you know a land owner. Check the Fraser Valley Special Area brochure, it shows a surprising amount of area open to hunting during open and regular seasons.

    The advantage of bow is you don't have to be a specific distance from buildings but it is mostly true that if you want to hunt in the LML and you don't have any friends with an acreage, your only recourse is to start knocking on doors. The advice I got and still have yet to act on is, don't dress in camo and stress the fact that you are a bow hunter. Some farmers may be more willing to let you in if you offer to start calling coyotes too.

    Most of you are forgetting Langley has a township and city. If I am correct they are managed differently and thus different bylaws? The bylaw I read before stated no longbows crossbows and discharge at non moving targets only.
    The Rocky Mountains is the Marrow of the World
    "Ain't this somethin'? I told my pap and mam I was going to be a mountain man; acted like they was gut-shot. "Make your life go here, son. Here's where the people is. Them mountains is for Indians and wild men." "Mother Gue", I says "the Rocky Mountains is the marrow of the world," and by God, I was right. Keep your nose in the wind and your eye along the skyline."
