Current Limited Entry Hunting (LEH) Zones polygons are hunting opportunities created via a lottery, and the details are found in the LEH Synopsis. Participation in the LEH draw is available to any resident of BC who legally possesses a BC Resident Hunter Number. The purpose of Limited Entry Hunting is to achieve wildlife management objectives without resorting to such measures as shortening seasons or completely closing areas. It is only introduced where it has become necessary to limit the number of hunters, limit the number of animals that may be taken, or limit the harvest to a certain class of animal. The Zones are valid during the LEH hunting season, and changes are made effective July 1st of each yearly. Some zones change frequently, some change rarely.

Column Name Short Name Data Type Data Precision Comments
LIMITED_ENTRY_HUNTING_ZONE_ID LEH_ZN_ID NUMBER 10 LIMITED ENTRY HUNTING ZONE ID is the Primary unique numeric identifier for a spatial feature.
FEATURE_CODE FEAT_CODE VARCHAR2 10 FEATURE CODE contains an alphanumeric value based on the Canadian Council of Surveys and Mapping (CCSM) system for classification of geographic features, e.g., AR82000110.
LIMITED_ENTRY_HUNTING_ZONE LEH_ZONE VARCHAR2 30 LIMITED ENTRY HUNTING ZONE is the ZONE identifier, e.g., A, B, C
MANAGEMENT_UNITS MNGMNT_UNT VARCHAR2 25 MANAGEMENT UNITS represent the name of the management units that intersect this Limited Entry Hunting Zone Polygon.
LTD_ENTRY_HUNTING_ZONE_TYPE LEH_ZN_TYP VARCHAR2 50 LTD (limited) ENTRY HUNTING ZONE TYPE stores the Species Type for which this zone is valid, e.g., MULE (BLACK-TAILED) DEER, FALLOW AND MULE (BLACK-TAILED) DEER, ECOLOGICAL RESERVE - CLOSED TO HUNTING.
