The Yukon Fish and Wildlife Management Board has created an online survey as the latest way to gather public input on roadside bear hunting and viewing.
The wildlife board formed a joint working group with Yukon Environment last year to review roadside hunting in the territory.
A public meeting on the topic was held in April.
Currently it’s legal to hunt bears along most Yukon roads, provided the gun is not shot from or across the road surface and the hunter is at least a kilometre from the nearest residence.
The issue gained widespread public attention in May of last year when a hunter legally shot a blonde grizzly along the Tagish road.
The survey can be found on the management board’s website at www.yfwmb.ca. It takes about five minutes to complete. The deadline is May 23.
