Area deer committees will meet and swap ideas

The Grand Forks deer committee will be meeting up with other deer committees at the end of next month.

The April 27 meeting will include the cities of Cranbrook, Kimberley, as well as the town of Sparwood. The Ministry of Environment will also be attending.

Coun. Chris Moslin, a member of the deer committee, says each committee is going about the issues of deer population in its city differently.

He says the meeting will give each committee a chance to see other perspectives on the deer issue.

“We’ll take the day to hear each others’ stories, more or less,” Moslin says.

He says he is especially interested in hearing about the city of Kimberley, which got a special hunt.

“I think that’s pretty significant,” Moslin says, adding that it is difficult to change the hunting regulations. “I want to hear their story on that.”

The meeting will take place just before the Association of Kootenay Boundary Local Government meeting in Kimberley at the end of April.

The next regular meeting will be at the RDKB meeting room this Friday at 1:30 p.m.

Moslin says he is planning to put a draft deer management plan in front of the

committee.
