The Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation has commissioned a study on land access hoping the provincial government doesn’t miss the mark with its pending legislation. The study conducted by Dr. Alistair Bath of Memorial University had input from rural municipalities, agricultural leaders and the Ministry of Environment and was given to landowners as well as hunters. The conclusions include wide spread agreement over the right of land owners to say who can and can’t come onto their properties. Land owners favour written permission while hunters prefer verbal who also say it’s difficult to get land owner contact information. Federation Executive Director Darrell Crabbe says the most common complaint from land owners is hunters’ use of motorized vehicles like A-T-V’s. Crabbe fears a bad bill will scare hunters away which would lead to wildlife population problems in the future.
