Unrelated, but shows Vancouver's mindset - They have government funded and staffed safe houses, with free needles provided, for addicts to shoot up in.

It's good to be an outfitter in Alberta or Saskatchewan...for now.

That is a very small minded way of looking at it

This isn't about what Canada is doing its a mindset movement that is taking root across the world. Same liberal mindset in B.C also lives here in Austin, TX. Don't think similar things aren't taking place here in the U.S.


Not Everyone is content with hunting deer and pigs in their backyard, this is a serious issue that is very concerning.

Very concerning indeed. Was discussed a lot while I was up there for 3 weeks.

Hunters had little to do with it, simply a combination of a very liberal provincial government and populace almost all concentrated in Vancouver. No science, no reason other than many didnít like the idea of killing a capstone symbol animal.

The conservation/F&W dept has been infiltrated by non/antis that donít understand or care about huntersí roles in conservation.

Same basic thing happened with CA mountain lion ban.

Whatís ironic is some other species (like Stoneís sheep) have an increasingly inordinate amount of pressure on their populations - and almost all efforts to address it have been rebuffed by resident hunters. When their populations get low enough, Vancouver will take notice and probably ban hunting for many more animals.

Sadly, itís kind of a perfect storm. National government is very liberal too. Iím pretty sure that if it werenít for the sympathy rank-and-file Canadians have for the First Nations peoples, a lot more hunting bans would have already been in place. (I realize this ban has little/no effect on them, but IMO the fact that they are hunters has slowed down the pressure on hunting bans as a whole. I hope it wonít pick up steam as a result of this one.)

CO is getting same problems Cali has, huge bear explosion. CO lost itís spring bear season and hounds hunting.

We have to stick together and continue educating Non hunters and introducing new hunters as often as possible. All differences a side.

I agree. We need to unite and put our differences aside.

Agree 100%.

I think you also agree that we need to be more aware of how we present ourselves as hunters.

You and I have differences on what that means - but Iím quite certain that if we both sat down and took an ďAgree/Donít AgreeĒ test with 100 questions on this topic that we would probably answer 95 of them the same.

Been to BC several times, people are Like TX. Itís become the last home of real cowboys

Prime lower 48 example
20 years ago Colorado was god and guns country. Even the Hippy revolution was pro hunting.

Now a days CO Resident lic sales equals $6mil and NR equals $48mil. NR didnít close their spring bear season. NR donít determine state policy residents do. CO fish and game is scrambling because more hunters are moving out then in.

You think TX will never change... but look at the urban voting numbers in Dallas, Austin, San Antonio and houston.
