So, not sure if anyone else has heard this sad news: With the late spring, the nelchina/40 mile herd(basically same herd, just split different) did not make it to their calving grounds in time to calf. They were dropping calves long the migration route. Then, they did not make it across the copper river in time to be in the right grounds. ADF&G estimates a 100% loss of calves. My guess is hunting will sieze.
Has anyone heard of this, or is it hear-say? Its probably true since I drew a tag
