HUNTING

In the fall months, the air becomes crisp and your breath becomes visible, floating as a fog in front of you. Excitement fills the air in anticipation of another record trophy, and the prize of a freezer full of delicious game.

Hunting in the Tulameen area is a long-standing tradition, which dates back to the original human occupants of the land, the Tulameen First Nations people. Today, hunting continues to be enjoyed by sportsmen, young and old alike. If practiced responsibly, hunting will remain a favorite pastime for generations to come.

 

The Tulameen area is renowned for producing record size Mule Deer. It is also home to moose, elk, black bears, grouse, cougar, and coyotes. Depending on regulations, tags for these species may be available to interested hunters. Tulameen and the surrounding area are within Region 8 (Okanagan).  Please visit the following link to check for the latest regulations and updates regarding hunting in BC:

Licensed hunters are reminded to have a clear understanding of all pertinent rules and regulations. They are also encouraged to remain respectful of their surroundings at all times. Hunting safety is of extreme importance.

Although hunting on Private Property is limited to those with permission from the landowner, many hectares of Crown land remain open to hunting access. Please remember to close livestock gates behind you, and be mindful of your surroundings at all times.
