Board of Game proposal #41 has hit the AP wire. Board Chairman Cliff Judkins is quoted as saying. "the pup-killing proposal is worth discussing." "It certainly has merit if it's effective and is done by Native and Eskimo people," he said.
"They certainly know where the dens are at and they're not interested in wiping out wolf populations any more than we are."
Now I'm not Alaskan Native or Eskimo but I have done some denning of bear. It works. If the use of aircraft to reduce predation isn't a politically correct method maybe Alaskan Natives and Eskimos are?
It will be interesting to see how the board handles this one next weekend. Do others have experience denning?
