LETTERS: Antlerless moose hunt opinion receives wide response

‘I believe in sustainability and there is no real reason to kill cows and calves’


I read the article and I live, hunt, fish, and enjoy the outdoors in management units 3:39 and 3:30. This is the area most devastated by the BCFS when they burned us out in 2017. There are no moose left in these management units. All species are at risk with the current law. A good example is any mule deer buck open for the month of October. It’s insane.

Good cause and article, seems the people in charge of making the hunting and fishing regulations don’t always get it right. Hopefully they get an earful and stop the cow calf hunting for a few seasons to see what happens with the population. Good luck

Balfour, B.C.

I am in my mid 70s and in that time, I have never shot a cow moose. I believe in sustainability and there is no real reason to kill cows and calves, they keep producing yearly.

If we keep this activity going there will be a time where there will be no moose to harvest.

I have contacted the province on several occasions, however, it seems everyone In Victoria with the power to change have failed to do so.

I really appreciate and enjoy a BBQ moose steak, however, it has been nearly 13 years since I did harvest a bull.

I will continue to hunt until I am unable to do so. I enjoy the hunt and walking the bush and just seeing nature is enough these days.

It would be nice if change comes for the better, but we will continue to buy tags and go.

Thank you.

F. Rollins

If you shut down the anterless moose hunt the moose population would be out of balance. What about dry cow moose that can’t have any more calves? This is the wrong decision on part of the B.C. Liberal government who know nothing about hunting.
