The BVRG is much more than just a gun club. We are involved with First Nations, wildlife and fish conservation, outdoors, and firearm events/issues throughout the Bulkley Valley and neighbouring regions. We supply input to the provincial government on hunting and fishing regulations and various conservation initiatives. We are involved with firearms education and promotion and supply training facilities to RCMP, DFO, BCF&W and other law enforcement agencies.

PAL and CORE courses are offered year round by private contractors. Check our calendar for upcoming courses and who to contact.

Come to a meeting. Meetings are listed on the calendar and are available with Zoom. We are always looking for volunteers for events and special projects. We always have more projects than volunteers and many ideas on the backburner. We can always use your skillset for something.
