Read an article today where 2 hunters were convicted of poaching wildlife in Alaska, & in the article the reporter stated that the 2 were "hunting without licences."
Here's my email response to both the reporter & Criag Medred:
'"A man charged with violating 21 wildlife laws while on a big-game hunting
spree in Alaska"
Your use of the word "hunting" in the above sentence, to describe the
criminal behavior of this cretin, does a great disservice to all law abiding
citizens of this great state.
It shows an agenda that slants hunters as being lawbreakers.
Likewise you continue to use the word "hunting" in this sentence:
"Querin and Carson Kemmer, 24, killed a moose, caribou, brown bear and two
Dall sheep while hunting along the Dalton Highway and Turnagain Arm without
the proper licenses,"
They weren't "hunting" as they weren't licensed to hunt. In order to
partake in the privilege to hunt, you need to be licensed. They were dead
set on breaking the law & therefore, they're criminals.
It's a wonder why so many who hunt in this great state boycott the Anchorage
Daily News, in regards to articles like this, that really permeate the
leanings of the ADN, & the editors who allow this type of language to pass
as being correct.'
I would like everyone here to email the editors in regards to this & see what change we can affect with in the ADN...

The reporter hasn't gotten back to me, but Craig did! Now personally I don't like Craig's stance on subsistence, but this really show's class, I don't know how many times I've emailed Craig & he's always responded. He truely deserves some sort of recognition.
