HUNTING in MU 8-23?
The wildlife health monitoring program for Bovine Tuberculosis (BTb) in MU8-23 is again underway. At the start of this 2016 hunting season we were 138 heads short of our goal of reaching the necessary 300 heads (elk, deer, and moose) to confirm BTb is not present in the wild deer population. The collected heads are being sampled for BTb in response to positive cases in cattle in the Cherryville area several years ago. We are testing to ensure that it has not become endemic to the wildlife as once the disease is established in a wildlife population it is difficult to eradicate. Results from past years sampling are negative.
Since this is the final year for the program we are keen to have as many hunters as possible participate in the program and assist us with reaching our head submission goal as well as have them provide any suggestions that might improve participation. To that end, we request that everyone who reads this article disseminate this information to hunters, friends and family, game club members and on social media and hunting forums to increase the awareness of the program in hopes of increasing the head submissions.
This year we are pleased to announce that we have a new junior hunter draw sponsored by Kencraft Sales in Lavington and a hunter draw prize donated by Fisher’s Home Hardware in Vernon. The drop off freezer locations has changed slightly. Locations within the Cherryvillie/Lumby area are:
Sundowner Meats & Deli, Uwe Lauterbacher 1-250-547-1463
2611 Hwy 6 (Hwy 6 & Creighton Valley Road just east of Lumby)
Lumby BC, during opening hours and after hours 6-11pm by appointment
Or you can call Susan in Lumby at 250-547-9207 to arrange for a drop-off
Along with the North Okanagan drop off locations if individuals so desire they can contact any BC Ministry office and deliver the head to a wildlife biologist or Conservation Officer (http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/main/regions.html).
If you have any questions about this please feel free to contact myself at the number noted above or via email email@example.com or Cait Neslson, Provincial wildlife Health biologist (Cait.Nelson@gov.bc.ca ).
