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.
