Alaska Governor Sarah Palin on July 3, 2007 signed a bill sponsored by Anchorage representative Bob Buch that prohibits "internet hunting." This so-called hunting practice allows Internet users to fire real bullets at real game in a remote location. It has been banned in a number of other states.
In addition to prohibiting people from engaging in cyber hunting in Alaska, HB 220 would also prohibit anyone from providing services or operating facilities in the state to enable these kinds of activities.
"The preemptive nature of HB 220 banning computer-assisted hunting is a significant action for conservation of wildlife and protection of our hunting heritage," said Carl Rosier, retired Commissioner of the Alaska Dept. of Fish and Game, and representative for the Alaska Outdoor Council.
