another interesting topic at the AC meeting in Fairbanks was the bison survey stuff
pretty much the idea is that if they can not save the damage to the farms the herd between now and 2017 will get reduced to pre farm size.. of 250 animals.. then if that does not work.. they can always bring them back up..
the new letter is out and available for comment at
there were some suggestions that if the herd was required to be DOWN SIZED.. to move 40-50 animals and start a new herd some where ..
or that they would just get more permits out for a short period.
also.. can probably project the bison draw permit fee to go to 20 bucks instead of ten. it cost a lot to keep the panoramic and other open and planted to stave of crop damage to the farms.
