Based on what I have read in the ADN today and the recent Alaska Supreme Court decision, I am calling for Mr. Robus to step down IMMEDIATLY!
He does not care about the interests of Alaskans or hunters.
As I have stated on another thread.
Rick Riddel this morning had a good point: Solve the situation and scrap tier II and go to a lottery/draw tags. Tier II violates the Alaska Constitution Article 1, Section I, every Alaskan is equal! Tier II discriminates based on a zip code and income. What do you think would happen if they treated the PFD as Tier II?
"Officials plan to present the Game Board with options to reword that question, said Matt Robus, director of the state's wildlife conservation division."
What the hell is this?? I am calling for Mr. Robus resignation!!
Mr. Robus is part of the problem! Look on page 3 the message from Robus. He states that the ADF&G does 3 things:
1. Conduct "survey and inventory" operations across the state in order to determine the number and characteristics of wild animals using various habitats,
2. Using the result of those surveys we develop estimates of how many animals can be safely harvested from each wildlife population,
3. division works to give hunters knowledge about how and where to conduct their hunts in a safe, effective manner.
When was the last time surveys were done? 10 or 15 years ago?
Lets solve the tier II crap by eliminating tier II and let's get some folks in ADF&G (upper management) that care about our State Constitution and get back to a “sustain yield!”
