Backcountry hunters & anglers

Do you know what’s happening on public lands in Yukon? Do you know who if anyone is representing your needs as a hunter and angler? Are you concerned about the future of hunting and angling in the Territory? Are you interested in conservation and preservation of Yukon wilderness? When was the last time you had a voice? When was the last time you were informed of a conservation or land use topic and asked to comment? Do you know what happens to your comments and how the government considered them?

There are chapters of the BHA in BC and Alberta. Yukoners have been working towards consultation on ORV regulations, enquiring on finalization of the Resource Roads Regulations, working with the salmon sub-committee, and working on the upcoming review of the Yukon Fish and Wildlife Management Board. 

Now the time has come to hold an AGM, to elect a Board and seek BHA chapter status.

Next meeting: February 6, 2019 at 6 pm High Country Inn. Check out the poster for details.


Cold Weather closure

This evening, Wednesday January 9, 2019, the Indoor Range will be closed to any shooting activities as the current temperatures are running in the minus 30 degrees Celsius or colder range. These low temperatures put extra stress on the heating and ventilation system in the indoor range.

Forecasts indicate that next week will show some improvement so we can continue with indoor shooting activities again next week. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.
