Meeting to discuss declining whitetail deer

Local hunters have called a meeting in Rock Creek on Friday evening to urge the government to restrict or end the whitetail doe season.

Hunters concerned about declining whitetail deer numbers in the Boundary area are holding a meeting at 7 p.m. this Friday night at the Kettle Wildlife Association hall in Rock Creek to try to get BC Wildlife to shorten the season on whitetail does.

According to Rock Creek resident Les Best the meeting is intended to bring media attention to the concerns of many hunters that the white tail population is in serious decline.

He explained that since 2010 there has been an open season on white tail does. This year it ran from Oct.10 to 31, with an additional 30 days open to youth hunters.

“We are doing this not only for ourselves, but for our kids,” he added.

For more information contact Les Best at 250- 446-2401.
