The Fish, Wildlife & Habitat Management Branch, Thompson-Okanagan Region, is currently working on a collaborative project with the Lillooet Tribal Council & St’at’imc Nation to assess migration ecology and habitat use of mule deer bucks in Management Unit 3-32 and parts of 5-03 and 5-04, west of the Fraser River in the south-central part of the province. Twenty-one (21) mule deer bucks have been GPS collared on spring ranges along the Fraser River, between Lillooet and Empire Valley, and in the Carpenter Lake area during the spring of 2011. Based on previous information from collared deer in these areas, collared bucks may be found throughout these management units during the fall deer season. To facilitate the collection of information, and to maximize the information gained from these bucks, we request that hunters avoid harvesting radio-collared mule deer bucks. Hunters should also be aware that many of the collared bucks were chemically immobilized during capture operations. Health Canada advises that ungulates should not be consumed for a 1 year period following immbolization.Read More...
