Message from Osoyoos Mountain Estates and supported by the Anarchist Mountain Community Society:
Some residents have recently approached us expressing concerns about unauthorized hunting in the Anarchist Mountain area generally and within our communities specifically. Of course, this has been a long-standing issue for us. Osoyoos Mountain Estates continues to strongly oppose unauthorized hunting and we prohibit hunting on any land that we own, most specifically including our Conservation land. We have made efforts to deter hunters but have had muted success over the years with gates, locks and signage.
We have recently had discussions with BC Conservation Service. Given the limited resources available to the Conservation Service which includes just 3 field officers in the vast Okanagan Region, it is clear that all residents must play a key role in deterring unwanted hunters. It has been recommended to us that we increase signage, which we will do in 2016. We would ask that all residents be vigilant when enjoying our beautiful mountain and Observe, Record and then Report any suspicious activity. We do not wish to see any confrontations.
The Conservation Service particularly needs license plate numbers to aid their investigations. Reporting can be done via the RAPP line (1-877-952-7277); however if you are uncomfortable reporting we will gladly relay the information for you. Thankfully the white tail deer rifle season ends on November 30. The Conservation Service Manager advises that they are dedicating one officer to the Anarchist/Mt. Baldy area until then as they do know that this area has a high level of infractions. Please contact me with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
