I'm new to Alaska and was reading the game regulations booklet online when I came across what I thought was a strange regulation. I can't quote it word for word, but basically there are (I think 2) management areas in alaska that which you can shoot caribou while in the water with a .22 cal rifle.
What's that all about? Are there too many caribou in this area? And with a .22 ? And just for fun-does a caribou float if you shot it in the water?
