Talking to a friend the other day got me thinking about the guide requirement for non-resident hunters for bear,sheep, and goat. I understand the reason behind this (and the guide money) but..... I was wondering what do you people think of non-residents who were once alaska residents coming back and hunting these species without a guide. My point is lets say i move away next year and I have successfully harvested sheep and bears legally as an alaska resident while i was here. Isn't it stupid that if i were to come back up here in a couple years hunting as a non-resident i would have to have a guide for something i have already hunted and demonstrated that i was able to take legally and within the regulations. i know that there would be tons of grey areas but seems silly you could shoot a bear one year and then the next year come back as a non-res and you suddenly need to pay a guide 18k for what you've already competently done...what are your thoughts. I'm not saying being able to buy resident tags or anything i'm talking about paying non-res prices and being put into non-resident drawings just being able to do it without a guide.
