    NPS Decides on Competitive Process for
    Noatak National Preserve Transporter Permits
    The National Park Service has decided to use an open, competitive
    process to award commercial use authorizations for transporter
    services in Noatak National Preserve. Eight permits will be available.
    Transporters are commercial operators who carry sport hunters into and out
    of the preserve. Over the last few years, the NPS has become aware of
    conflicts between subsistence users and transporters and their clients. To
    address the issue, the NPS has determined that it is prudent to limit the
    number of available transporter permits to eight and the total number of
    clients transporters may carry to 357 a year. These are the number
    operators and number of clients who were permitted in the preserve in 2008
    and 2009 when a moratorium on the issuance of additional permits and cap
    on the number of clients were in effect.
    The authorizations will be awarded though an open, competitive process.
    Companies interested in providing transporter services must submit a
    written application, including responses to a number of selection factors.
    The eight companies that submit the best complete applications will be
    issued authorizations. The award process will include a mechanism to
    ensure the total annual number of hunters does not exceed 357.
    The NPS intends initiate the competitive process by releasing an
    application in fall 2009. It intends to issue the CUAs in winter 2010.
    All interested companies, including current operators, must compete for an
    opportunity to provide the service. Preferences established by law will
    be addressed in the application process. The application will be
    publically announced as soon as it is available.
    The NPS has also begun a big game transportation services plan to find
    long-term solutions for the user conflict issue in the preserve.

    Will the 357 hunters be required to hunt with a .357?

    Nothing really new here. Lots of limits to commercial services on federal lands. What does "joe resident" really mean anyway? Does "joe resident" spend the dough to go into the Noatak preserve or just hop on his wheeler in the Nelchina basin?

    I find the adding of "joe" to any term like this super annoying.

    That should be plenty of hunters and could equal 3,570 hunting days.
