Additional Information

Data Quality

The LEH Draw Hunt Code Report contains data from 2002 to current.

Over-subscribed hunts: A hunt may be over-subscribed if an additional authorization was issued to fill a shared hunt group quota. As of 2016, hunts are no longer being over-subscribed.

Under-subscribed hunts: A hunt may be under-subscribed if the number of first and second choice applicants is below the number of available authorizations.

Fourth Pass Winners (alternate hunt): Previously, LEH applicants could choose to be considered for alternate hunts (hunts different than first and second choices) if authorizations remained for hunts in the area they applied for; these applications would be considered on the fourth pass. This option has been employed for difference species over time. As of 2018, this option is not being used for any hunts.

Lineage Statement

Data Sources:
- Fall 2016 draw to present - data compiled from the BC Hunting Online database
- Prior to Fall 2016 draw - data was originally stored and compiled on an IBM Mainframe; data was exported from the Mainframe into an MS Access database where it is currently stored. Draw data from prior to 2002 requires additional data cleaning and at this time is not able to be used.
