    Default Where will those that lost their Nelchina "Tier II Status" go to hunt now?

    Those that cannot hunt the Nelchina herd due to loss of opportunity, what are your plans now? What is the next step? Where do you go from here?

    Probably the same place they've been going since Tier II was invented.

    Default Clarify

    Just to clarify, I am not calling anyone a loser. I should have said: "Those who lost thier Tier II Permits".

    It's probably cheaper and just as successful to hunt deer in those states than caribou off the road system if you live near the Anchorage or Fairbanks airport.

    Default Bend Over Benjamin

    "Ben Dover" is a common name used as alias to stir up things.

    Bend Over. Benjamin Dover. Don't fall for it. Hopefully the mods log IP addresses of those who want to cause problems.

    Funny that, I went to High school with a Benjamin Dover. He was one angry individual for obvious reasons.

    Guilty until proven Innocent, I suppose.

    I am not here to cause problems. I asked a simple question.

    Now if the mods want to ban my name, then they shall.

    Back to the main question, where will those who lost thier Tier II tags hunt now?

    Default Chicken

    Benjamin,

    My guess is that Chicken Ridge will see some new faces.

    Yup, I'm one of them. I haven't ever won a subsistence permit, and I'm sick of waiting so this may be my first year to try for a caribou on a solo hunt out of Chicken. Haven't really decided if I'm going to hunt sheep or caribou this August. I don't have a partner so I could do either.

    Default Nelchina

    I have hunted the Nelchina caribou off and on since 1966. Back when the limit was 4 or 5 each. We never took more then 3 caribou a year for our family as we did not need it. Once the tier system started we never filled all the tags since we did not need all the meat and we had good success with moose. I still like the taste of a late August caribou better then moose. Since I also work for a living I probably won't be hunting caribou for a while under the current Tier II regs. I have always wanted to hunt the 40 mile herd so maybe next year I will try there.
