David Johnson was kind enough to host a few presentations on the site for you to download or view.
This first one is Tom Paragi's Intensive Management (IM) presentation given at the 2008 Board of Game meeting in Fairbanks. Tom is the IM coordinator for ADFG, and worked with David to get these files to him. This is a pdf file, 4.86mb in size, so could take a bit for some to view or download.
Here's the link:
Overview of Intensive Management with Emphasis on Region III Moose
The second file is a presentation by Tom Paragi from the moose management workshop in Fbks. Also a large file (6mb) and may take a bit for some to download:
Intensive Management, Habitat, and Prescribed Fire
This third file is a non ADFG paper about meat food security in Alaska, and is a short but good overview of where most of the red meat eaten in the state comes from and what the possibilities may be to produce more of our own rather than depend on importation from Outside. It was written by Tom Paragi (ADFG), S Craig Gerlach (Professor of Anthropology at UAF), and Alison M. Meadow (doctoral candidate UAF Anthropology department):
Security of Red Meat Supply in Alaska
Big thanks to Tom Paragi and David Johnson for making these papers available to everyone interested in Alaska game management. Plenty of data and charts and maps and info to digest, and I hope putting this information out there helps hunters learn more about some of the mgmt issues we face.
Best to all,
