  • MEET US - FOCUS HUNTING WITH OUR PRESIDENT | PODCAST
     
    How did Hunters for BC start?
    "We were like a garage band.... Once you start talking with other hunters you realize how much we have in common; how angry we are at the state of the province, the fish and wildlife and the habitat that we have. Before long we started thinking….we can do this. We want to be a voice for hunters. Do hunters have a voice in BC? Yes but it’s very weak. "
     
    How and why did Hunters for BC become a Chapter of Safari Club International?
     ...we asked ourselves, "How can we benefit SCI – how can SCI benefit us? How can we blend them all together and still do the best we can for the province? Does our problems in BC need national and international attention? We answered yes every time."

  • HUNTERS STAND AGAINST POACHERS

    As we grow at BC Interior SCI we shuffle around a lot of ideas on how we can best represent the interests of BC hunters, a topic which often dominates our meetings.  With all the cards on the table and a lot of consideration, “hunter image” is the first Joker we pull from the deck and we ask the question, "How does the public view hunters in general?"

    Many  conservation organizations have done great things to promote who we are and what we represent, Ducks Unlimited enhancing habitat with nesting boxes, CWTF releasing turkeys, the Wild Sheep Society’s tireless efforts to preserve and prevent the demise of this iconic animal, along with many more commendable projects throughout the province.

    Our Joker has a different face, and it’s an ugly one - POACHERS!  At one time or another, we have all seen the aftermath; the media loves it, the anti-hunting community rallies around it and the money and propaganda follow.  "What violent creatures we are!"  "Uncontrollable killers with no regards for wildlife!"  "Determined to wipe out a species under the guise as hunters."  You've seen it and read it over and over.

Regional Message

British Columbia is the most biodiverse province in Canada with 13 different biogeoclimatic zones.  Our wildlife populations, however, are in trouble!  We are asking for your voice to speak on behalf of BC’s dwindling wildlife populations. Decades of habitat loss and failed government management has placed our wildlife & natural resources in jeopardy. 

Our Province's wildlife heritage need your help.  Please join the conversation for greater conservation!
