My Son moved up this winter and will be living in the Fairbanks area. I'm very excited about hunting with him this year, but I do feel that he has to earn his right to pull the trigger while hunting with me. I do plan on helping him get a Black Bear as a non res, but after that he has to come along on a sheep, moose and goat hunt as a helper before he can harvest one with me. Next year as a resident and with a year under his belt he can have first shot at any game we come across, but until he proves that he has the skills to both ethically harvest and care for his catch, he is in training status.
Thoughts,, am I being to strict???
