I got that letter, but I think I'm a bit more cynical. I don't think the letter from Seldovia is about the goats at all. It is about the fact Seldovia doesn't want the skiiers there.
There were a couple things in that letter I didn't like. First, it wasn't addressed to me, but to "fellow hunter". Second, it wasn't dated and had no return address on the envelope, (both poor form), but most importantly, it wasn't even signed, and the signature line was "Seldovia". Seldovia who? City? Seldovia Village Tribe? Seldovia Native Association Inc? Concerned citizen? Who do I reply to?
My opinion is that I think the letter came from SNA. I think they don't like the skiing operation, but decided to try to get the hunters to fight the operation "on the goats' behalf". Remember, SNA isn't exactly "hunter friendly" if you aren't a shareholder. $150/DAY for black bear permit and $2000/DAY for brown bear permit. And, you have to agree to a post-hunt interview in town.
"Hunting Use Permit Holders agree to a post season interview at the Seldovia Native Association, Inc. office in Seldovia, Alaska to review hunter success, game habitat, game locations and game status."
All of that is within their rights as private land holders, but it is an important backstory to the letter. To think SNA is concerned about our ability to hunt goats on state and federal land on the Kenai is a bit naive.
