I have heard of many sub legal bulls left to rot on the Kenai again. 2 just yesterday off the Escape Route and Marathon road. 40" bulls shot and left, but luckily discovered by other hunters while the meat was still salvageable. A white Ford F150 was seen hauling ass away from the one on the escape route. A 42" bull was shot and the meat taken on Mental Health land. The rack left behind. Every other back road smells of rotting flesh. We will never see a 50" bull around here because the weekend warriors see a 40 and blast it only to haul butt after they realize their mistake. Sadly F&W sits on their asses in the office waiting for the call instead of patrolling out in the field. It's been years since I've seen a Trooper vehicle out checking licenses. I would venture to say that a large share of the bow hunters these days do not have an archery card. Also there were folks out hunting before season this year who did not read the regs about the date changes. F&W should have been out watching for them. If they put a 45" robo moose up on the escape rout, it wouldn't last 5 minutes.
Rant over, for now.
