Under the weight of politically manipulated social pressure, hunting opportunities have been eliminated here in BC and around the world.
Last year’s grizzly hunting ban was a wake-up call, a stark reminder that we cannot afford to be complacent. The antis are far from done. The battle to save our hunting heritage is just beginning. And so far, it’s a battle we’ve been losing.
What will our community do? What will be our legacy when, years from now, people look back on this critical point in time?
Will hunting still be “a way of life”, or just a memory of what some of us once enjoyed?
The Wild Sheep Society of BC is not going down without a fight.
JOIN US in this fight. Shortly our Hunter Heritage program will be released. We have a budget of $80,000 for the public relations outreach program. To date we have secured about half of that in donations from other organizations. We are asking for your help.
Have your club or organization donate $500 and we will place your name in a random draw for a TIkka T3 Lite Rifle courtesy of Italian Sporting Goods. Donate $5000 and we will enter you ten times. The more you give the better your chances are to win.
This promotion will run for January 20th to April 30th, 2019. For more details contact Colin Peters at firstname.lastname@example.org. Contest details below.

With the support of its members, the WSSBC will soon be launching an aggressive project through our Hunter Heritage Program dedicated to ensuring our right to hunt is preserved. This is consistent with 2e of our Constitution, which states:
“The purposes of the Society are to maintain and promote the right to hunt in a safe and ethical manner and to foster good will, sportsmanship and fair chase in light of all rules and regulations.”
It is important to acknowledge that our primary focus is, and always will be, wild sheep conservation. The Hunter Heritage Program was established so that our conservation dedicated funds would remain isolated from any other purpose. This is where we need your help.
We have engaged Kelowna based Monashee Media to execute on our vision to take back control of the hunting narrative and the image of the hunter in popular media. This is not a small undertaking. It will take the support of our entire community to achieve our goals.
The program will be officially launch in spring of 2019. We have already received a commitment of over $60,000 to the program from a handful of our dedicated members. We are now asking for your financial support. The future of our hunting opportunities depends on it.
Thank you to all who participated in our rifle give-away thank you to Italian Sporting Goods. Through our online Hunter Heritage donation campaign we raised close to $10,000. If you missed out this time, will be hosting additional campaigns in the near future.
We still need your support.
Thank you to the BCWF for supporting our Hunter Heritage program – 1Campfire with a $30,000 contribution.
