Well, I finally am granted a miracle DB309 drawing permit for 2012-2013 Kenai Brown Bear and the State opens a registration hunt starting October 1st. Wish They had advertised this prior to the many of us who paid for a drawing. I picked up the change at the Sportsman's show last weekend. At least those of us with a draw permit get a two week head start. Not that I'm complaining about thinning out the Browns, which is definitely a problem around here. Strange way to go about it. They must have had a high count from the hair/dna research done last year. I still haven't seen an announcement on their estimate, but it must be high in order to justify a registration hunt. Thin them out, boys and girls.
