WILDLIFE IN BC NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT

From the Wild Sheep Society of BC:

“Both government and non-government wildlife experts continually tell us that changes to hunting regulations are not meaningful to change the trends in wildlife population, and that science and cultural knowledge are the most important tools they have access to.

Sound wildlife management is critical to survival of all species. Managing based on social pressures is not acceptable, and you cannot afford to let it happen.”

Outdoor Range Orientation Document

Please review the NEW!! Outdoor Range Orientation Document for 2021. This document reflects our current Club policies and includes important information for both new members and long time members alike. Generally our Outdoor Ranges only have designated Range Officers for sanctioned Club events. That means we rely on the membership to participate in the day to day safe utilization and maintenance of the Outdoor Range facilities. Please become familiar with the attached rules and procedures for the benefit of all our members, and the sustainment of our great Club.
