SFW is super scary. They hate anybody that does not believe in their vision - which is to turn Alaska into a game farm and then sell the best hunting areas to the highest bidder!!!
Just a few months ago the boogey man was the ADF&G themselves!! The Division of Wildlie for the ADF&G can't stand them either.
Don Peay founded this organization in Utah - guess what - 5% of all Utah big game tags go to the highest bidder. The AOC and SFW don't care a fig about resident hunters. They want a private hunting reserve and a game farm in Alaska -- Nothing more, nothing less.
Check out some of these quotes from an email Dane Crowely (ED of SFW) sent to ADF&G. And if you really want to see who he and SFW represents, check out the CC recipiant list!

To Commissioner Denby Lloyd,
(Actual quotes from the letter)
I fear that the hard work of restoring Alaska wildlife populations is being undone from the inside of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.
Mr. DelFrate in all of his positions from the Kenai to his current location, an abysmal failure by any standard.
I would also like to know how ADF&G proposes to deal with these managers who shield and allow the likes of Jessie Coltrane and Sean Farley circumvent the internal ADF&G rules of speaking to the press and making statements on behalf of ADF&G and disregard the BOG process/policy to meet their own personal agenda.
It is also worth mentioned the complete lack of professionalism exhibited by Rick Sinnott on a regular and continual basis.
Who supervises these people? Why is this allowed to continue? ..
I am working from the opinion that the wildlife of Alaska belongs to Alaskans and that the Department of Fish and Game is a management driven organization not a research driven organization.
If not for the lack-luster work of Gino Delfrate and those he supervises, we might have not had to go to the lengths currently being bashed
If Mr. Farley and Mr. DelFrate find that management is offensive to them then I suggest they transfer to the National Park Service or some other non-managing agency more in line with their thinking.
I have forwarded this email far and wide to pull back the cover on what appears to be a huge problem. I think that the legislature, the Governor's Office and all of the outdoor groups need to get this issue resolved
Mr. Farley is an embarrassment to Alaska, to the Department and to science; his supervisor may be worse. I would sincerely appreciate an update as to the final solution to this unfortunate situation
