Mayne Island Deer Hunting Regulations

Deer

 

The latest update of the British Columbia Hunting Regulations gives the impression that hunting is open on Mayne Island.

Mayne Island remains a ‘no hunting’ area with the exception of a handful of special permit holders licensed to cull the invasive Fallow Deer. In the regulations, Map A3 clearly states no hunting is permitted on Mayne Island.  For clarification, interested parties are requested to check with the Ministry for the latest updates on hunting restrictions on Mayne Island.

BC Wildlife Regional Office (Nanaimo): . . . . . . . . . . . . . (250) 751-3100

The Mayne Island Deer Committee continues to work with the Ministry to explore options, but no further openings are contemplated at this time.

The Regulation is available online here:
