Economics Speaker Series: Where’s the Meat? Exploring Changes in Game Management and Governance that BC Resident Hunters Value
December 2, 2022 at 12:30 pm - 2:00 pmFree
The Department of Economics, Philosophy and Political Science invites you to attend a talk by Dr. John Janmaat.
Hunting is an important activity for many BC residents, providing both food and recreational pleasures. It also serves to transfer funds from the more populous to the less populous regions of the province.
Many of the most sought after game species in BC are in decline, with an increasing share of hunts becoming limited entry (LEH).
Join Dr. Janmaat’s discussion on using a choice experiment with LEH moose hunt applicants to explore how hunters value increasing the harvestable surplus, changing the probability of being drawn, changing governance, and increasing the share of licence fees dedicated to game management.
