Prince George, B.C.- The new  hunting and trapping regulations  are now available and will be in force  until 2018.

There are only a few minor changes to the  regulations as they apply to  the 7A wildlife management area (Omineca)  which includes Prince George.hunting-trapping-synopsis-2016-2018-cover

The season for mule deer bucks in  a number of the areas within 7A  has been shortened.   It used to be that  within areas 7-2 to 7-11, 7-15 to 7-18, 7-23, 7-26 to7-30  and 7-37 to 7-41   would be open from September  10th to November 20th.  That season has been shifted and shortened to October 1 to October 31.

There are some date  shifting for specifics within  the mule deer category, but the overall  length of the season remains the same.

The only change to the  moose hunt regulations,  is that the  days for hunting  moose calves  will start Oct 7 and run through to October 16th this year.  It starts three days later than  allowed under previous regulations,  but  still runs 9 days so the length  of the calf season has not  changed.

The new regulations also see the season lengthened for  hunting wolves,  adding an extra two weeks  so  wolves can be hunted legally from August 1st  right through to June 30th.
