My apologies for yet another sheep management thread but AZtoAK's thread got me thinking.
What if ADF&G managed sublegal rams using a quota similarly to registration permits and closed GMUs/subunits by emergency order once a certain number of sublegals were taken?
I am NOT suggesting a registration hunt for any ram, but what if in the name of managing herd health F&G exercised an emergency closure of a GMU or subunit once a certain number of sublegals were taken?
The PRO of such an idea (as I see it)
-Managing for total ram harvest is more biologically sound
-Some hunters might be encouraged to hide or not report borderline sheep
