New online service now available for hunters

A new online portal is now up and running that makes it easy for hunters to access a range of e-services

A new online portal is now up and running that makes it easy for hunters to access a range of e-services, including hunting licences and applications for limited entry hunting (LEH) draws.

The B.C. hunting portal gives hunters instant access to apply for their resident hunting credentials and the new Fish and Wildlife ID, which replaces the old hunter identification number.

Meanwhile, the new online LEH system offers interactive maps and a simple interface that instantly gives hunters information on upcoming hunting opportunities across the province.

With the move online, the Province is no longer issuing paper  LEH applications and will not accept paper LEH applications after 2016.

Hunters without Internet access can still visit Service BC, FrontCounter BC or an authorized vendor to apply in person for the Fish and Wildlife ID or an LEH draw.

Over time, the Province says they plan to add other e-services like licences, compulsory reporting forms, guide licences and reporting, and applications to accompany a non-resident hunter.
