The BOG is meeting this week and public testimony will be this weekend. Here is the link for all the info-
Board of Game generated proposal 207 -
Potential changes to use of aircraft for sheep hunting:
1. From August 10 to September 20 aircraft may only be used to place hunters and
camps, maintain existing camps, and salvage meat and trophies while used for the
purpose of Dall sheep hunting. Using an aircraft for the purpose of spotting sheep
or locating Dall sheep during the open hunting season is prohibited.
To me this will effect residents that fly themselves or a buddy into hunt sheep more so than any other group of sheep hunters.
The guides have the time to pre-season fly.
So if you are concerned about this passing ( I have knowledge that it has support and traction with the board) go and sign up and testify on Saturday in opposition.
I don't want to get into a debate about the pros or cons of this passing. This is specifically to let people know about it. If you're for it go and testify as well.
