On August 16, 1971 I killed what will likely be my 1 and only Mt. Goat in Alaska. On August 16, 2011 I plan to write a story on this web site commerating the 40 years that have somehow slipped by.
As I remember the hunt, absolutely nothing was said by anyone about "same day air" or "wanton waste" of meat. I have spent a little time trying to research these 2 topics with no success. Does anyone remember when these 2 laws went into effect? I am positive that the guide requirement came into being many years later but I haven't been able to find the beginnings of these particular laws.
I also know that it was a totaly different time. Heck, the Alcan highway still had lots of gravel sections and Anchorage was not nearly as large as it is now. Part of our traveling took us to Valdez, and even though it was an additional 6 years before the pipeline was approved by congress, the pipe was already stored there.
Well, I don't want this to become political - I just would like some help about when "same day air" and "wanton waste" laws went into effect.
