I just posted in the "Best hunting locals" that the Chitina R. is a great place to hunt both sheep and goats. Specifically mentioned McCall Ridge which in years past has been a great place to hunt for both in Sept.
Just heard the other day that the guide that operates out there only took 4 sheep out of 16 or 17 hunters they guided this year. Also, this outfits harvest numbers have been dropping for some years now.
My question is: does anyone know of a large die off of sheep in this area? Or could the low harvest rate be due to over hunting of sheep by this particular guide. Seems like 16-17 hunters per year could be concidered over hunting? Anyones thoughts or insite please.
