Definitely good news.  Been a topic around around Lethbridge for a while now.

Thats good to hear, now I wonder what they are going to do with the paid hunting stuff that was recommended in the RAC document.

Good news but I couldn't really give a crap what these boneheads legislate regarding random camping.  No matter what, I will camp on our crown lands respectfully with minimum impact.  Always have, always will.  No government will take that away from me without big trouble.  This kind of legislation would cross the line for me personally and many others I know.  We would be talking revolution.  They should maybe try and enforce a few of the more sensible laws we already have in place before dreaming up stupid ones.

I am all for back country camping, responsible use of the land so everyone can enjoy it.
Last time I was in The Pass I saw the damage and irresponsible jack asses that cause it. I think there needs to be a higher level of enforcement including fines and confiscation of OHV for damages caused by these individuals. It's public land not theirs to destroy.....

I love back country camping.  I wish everyone would just clean up after themselves.  It seem's it doesn't matter where you go or how far back in the bush you still find litter.

I agree, except that a couple swipes with a hihoe would stop almost all from random camping

Very true axe,, I pretty much feel the same. I personally wasn't worried about a province wide ban because it would be virtually impossible to pull off. I said it from the start it wouldn't happen. And yes we have more than enough rules in this country already we just have to get the lazy idiots off their asses and get them out there and do their job and enforce the laws we have. Yah,, I'll just hang out away from those rocks in the bush anyways,, way to many people out there for me fighting over what little wilderness there is left. I'll take my muskeg and mosquitoes and no crowds all day..

And that is why there will be more restrictions coming on random camping in Alberta.

The part I don't like is the permit to camp 2wks or longer. I know its free, but would this apply to hunting camps is what I'm wondering?

Huntress, the 2 week rule has been in effect for a long time. In the Waiperous area we had some of our camping parties stay for a whole month and once or twice they made us move camp. On the same note, we have often stayed 3 or 4 weeks on hunting trips and they have never bothered us.
I think whats happening here is the amount of campers out in the summer looking for places to random camp. That is why they make you move to give someone else a chance to setup....Especially Waiperous because it's very busy area during the summer months. As far as hunting goes, there seems to be alot of places to set up camp and SRD usually looks the other way. On occassion they have stopped by to check hunting licenses but never once asked us to move. I'm sure they were aware of us being there over 2 weeks.

The fact they felt the need to put out a public press release tells me that we as sportsman have had impact and we're being heard.  All those letters being sent and questionairres being filled are working and we need to keep up the fight.  Congrats and thank you to all those who've taken the time to make their views known to the powers that be. 

Nice work.
