Maybe the intent by the Ministry of Environment is to give hunters a leg up on EXACTLY where the Mountain Goats to be SHOT with a rifle. Of course if this location was near .... Penticton .... helicopter training sessions wouldn't be a risk to mountain sheep ... just ask a baby sheep if the Whap-Whap-a-Whap sounds like gunfire or a chopper has effected her ability to relax while living on the EDGE.

Much like deer in Penticton, they’re completely used to what they see and hear in their environment.”
