Government Hunting Services Going Online

In April 2016, the Province will introduce a new online system that will improve the overall efficiency of hunter services. Initially the online service will be for Limited Entry Hunting (LEH) applications. In the future, the system will integrate a range of online services for hunters, including licensing.

Hunters will have 24-hour online access to hunting services from any computer with an internet connection and will be able to view and track their Limited Entry Hunting applications online.
To provide access to the new system, hunter numbers will be replaced with a new Fish and Wildlife ID (FWID).

Hunters with an existing hunter number will be assigned a FWID (which will include their old hunter number) and a Resident Hunting Credential. New hunters will need to register and apply for their FWID and Resident Hunting Credential.

Changes are coming to Hunter Registration and the Limited Entry Hunting (LEH) Draw.
The Province will introduce a new online system for hunters in 2016, making it easier for you to register and apply for Limited Entry Hunting (LEH) draws.
You can submit LEH applications online at home, or at a Service BC, FrontCounter BC, or at a vendor location. The online service will be available for the Fall 2016 LEH Draw. More information will be provided in the 2016-2017 Limited Entry Hunting Regulations Synopsis.
You can no longer purchase paper application forms for the Fall 2016 LEH Draw or the 2016 Special Sheep LEH Draw. Application forms for the Spring 2016 LEH Draw can be purchased only at the following locations:
All Service BC locations during regular business hours, Monday to Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Note: You do not need a hunter number or license to purchase an application form.

If you have already purchased application forms, you can use them for the Spring 2016 or Fall 2016 LEH Draw. After the Fall 2016 LEH Draw, paper application forms will NOT be accepted. You can email the Fish and Wildlife Branch at HuntingTransformation@gov.bc.ca, or call 1-877-855-3222 FREE
