    Default new things for hunting season 2012 .... like no deer pee on them hip boots

    Just a short list... of some of the changes that will go un noticed until tolate...

    1... Felt soled waders went on the chopping block to match the fishing reg... they will no longer be allowed in Alaska Streams hunting OR fishing...

    2... a new list of allowable pack animals... unless certified by a vet to not spread disease to sheep and goat...

    3... May no longer Posses or use Deer or Elk urine in the field. and an effort to stop importation will occure... to prevent the possibility of CWD making it to AK.. ( made no distinction for synthetic or not.. or moose lures manufactured in AK???? are an unknown at this time. )

    sure a lot of discussion and effort to keep L48 contaminants where they belong.. Not sure how it will affect folks...

    more to come for sure.

    And of interest to the bowhunters, proposal 57 passed. Mechanical broadheads are now legal for all big game in Alaska.

    Thanks for the updates Vince. I haven't had a chance to follow the meetings, so this is my best source for hearing what has been decided at this point.

    Thanks Lone Wolf1 - I had never seen these type waders and was thinking the felt was on the "inside" and couldn't figure out how that could have any impact!

    I am with you - I have experimented over the years and lost too many animals to what should have been good hits. Poor penetration and many times no exit = poor blood trail was not acceptable. I have no problem getting fixed broadheads to fly great out to 40 yards and rarely have I needed to shoot more than 25 anyway... way to many chaps promoting them simply to get a profit I feel.

    It all seems like a big circle around with non-solutions that ignore the real problem.

    The easiest way to keep L48 bugs out of the state is to stop letting L48ers into the state. Duh.

    If you guys have this problem, you for sure haven't used the Rage Expandables. If you want I can add pictures of what they do. No problem at all with them. My brother almost cut a red fox in half with one. I've killed multiple deer with them. They are the shiznat. Seriously, try them out. I love this law, because it expands your kill zone with a larger cutting channel. They're sick. I've seen deer that wouldn't have been killed if not for the Rages. Yes, it is a whitetail and not a moose, but it's the same thing really. They cut through it all and leave a great blood trail.

    I've never tried the rage expandables, but I have used others, .......used to be a fan of NAP spitfires because of the truer arrow flight until I shot a whitetail from a blind at 26 yards quartering away and never got a good blood trail and not the penetration I wanted, recovered the deer 200 -plus yards and 5 hours later. Also, My buddy gutshot a doe at 30 yards when she jumped the strings and the arrow did not pass thru when we finally recovered her the next day.....never again will I use a mechanical broadhead, the animal deserves a quick clean kill and minimal suffering. I could understand for small game but not for big game (just my opinion).....

    Wasn't trying to deter away from the subject of this thread but, I was just surprised they passed this .....oh well, maybe the newer and better expandables are better designed and guarranteed to open up and do their job......
