2023-2024 LEH Regulations Synopsis is Out
Any resident of British Columbia who holds a Fish and Wildlife ID with active B.C. resident and hunting credentials may apply. To be eligible to obtain a B.C. resident credential, hunters must be a B.C. resident as defined in the Wildlife Act or qualify for an exemption.
To obtain the hunting credential, a hunter must prove successful completion of hunter safety training such as the Conservation and Outdoor Recreation Education (CORE).
In order to apply for LEH, you MUST have proven B.C residency. Your Fish and Wildlife (FWID) online profile will display the residency expiry date.
Supporting documentation accepted as proof of B.C. residency include the following, with an issue date being at least six months prior to the date of the application. Please note if you are renewing your B.C. residency credential then your documentation must be valid with no restriction on the issue date:
- BC Driver’s Licence
- BCID Card
- BC Services Card, non-photo BC Services Card or Combined BC Driver’s Licence and Services Card
Hunters under 18 years of age can use documentation from a parent or legal guardian to prove residency.
You can obtain or update your residency credential by:
- Applying through BC Hunting Online (requires a basic BCeID)
- Contacting a FrontCounter BC office
- Visiting a retail vendor (residency renewals only and you must bring your photo BC Services Card, non-photo BC Services Card or Combined BC Driver’s Licence and Services Card)
You are encouraged to take advantage of the BC Hunting online service (WILD) using your BCeID.
Please review these quick reference guides for WILD to ensure that your credentials are up to date and that the application is done correctly.
The deadline for this year’s applications is 11:59:59 pm Thursday, June 8, 2023.
We encourage you to apply early.

Saturday’s cleanup was a great success with 30+ volunteers from the Vernon Off Road Motorcycle Club, Vernon ATV Club and Vernon Fish and Game Club taking part as well as one member of the North Okanagan Cycling Society.
The effort was centered around the metal bin truck from ABC Recycling that Kane Blake from the OFTF organized to have on site for the heavy metal and the 40-yard bin that was donated and supplied by Randy Meier of LRM Contracting (also President of Vernon Fish and Game Club).
