The June 5 PAL and the June 12/13 CORE course both have room for more students, if interested please call, Alan Bond at 250 352-2289.
A decision has been made to postpone our 3D Archery shoot until next year. Due to the public health recommendations to stay local, and the rising number of Covid cases , and our desire to keep our community safe, it was the most responsible decision. Members will still have access to the outdoor archery range and we will set up part of the “A” course like we did last summer. Thanks, Annette
Sheep feeding program wraps up for the season
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.”
