    Default Nothing!

    I honestly don't think I'm entitled to anything. I have the financial means to buy all the food my family needs, so I have no claim to any game for purposes of keeping food on the table. I feel it's a previledge to hunt, and I enjoy it more than just about any other activity. I think it's important to teach my kids the value of nature, so I am grateful that I am afforded that opportunity.

    Someone who lives in the bush and must hunt to survive - that person has a much more viable claim to the animal than I do.

    The other 299,300,000 people can have it.

    Noone has a more intimate understanding of, or deeper appreciation for freedom, than a soldier who has fought for it in a country where it does not exist.

    What's the backstory on this thread? Must have been triggered by something?

    I am entitled to survival. The "grocery store" mentality has permeated our society to where people think that the government owns it all and we only get what they feel the need to share. That's also how the kings of Europe treated the peasants.

    I am entitled to take what the land I live on provides in order to ensure my survival. The government restricts that to the point where it is very difficult for anyone to survive on their own accord. We all rely on a national food distribution system because of it. I think that is wrong.

    Default perfect world

    In Andrews perfect world, we would be entitled in this way:

    Anyone who is financially disadvantaged in this state would be allowed to get enough meat to feed their family. (maybe 2 moose a year, something reasonable). Perhaps a little subsistence reform.

    For everyone else, the opportunity to hunt every year (meat or trophy animals).

    For any species of predator that has higher birth rates (especially he bears which are omnivorous, and are pretty much never lacking in food supply)
    than moose and caribou, people would stop just short of killing them for fun.

    Default opportunity to work

    All I hope for is the opportunity to work for what I need. Don't tell me to sit aside and collect a check from someone elses extra, just give the opening to work, which is what Alaska as Land of Opportunity is all about, work abounds...

    and I feel it is my responsibility to get the tools together and make the access to that opportunity happen enough to go out and do what it takes to take care of my family.

    I think that Erik states it as about as simple as you can and I have to agree with him.

    So if I was lazy and didn't hold a job I would be entitled to the fish & game since my financial means would be limited? Since I no longer have a job I should probably be entitled to have someone give me a boat and fuel to operate it as well so I can get the moose I would then be entitled to? I respectively disagree with your way of thinking on this one - Putting healthy food on my families table is one of my top priorities in life and I happen to do that by hunting and fishing as well as working. When we moved from rural Alaska to the urban areas our need to eat didn't change. Our desire to eat healthy and provide from the available resources didn't change either.

    We should all be entitled to equal access to the available resources - the key word being equal.

    You mis-read my intent with that statement. Lazy people don't very often have the gumption to go out and hunt anyway. For some people, subsistence lifestyle is a choice. I think you'd find that they are among the LEAST lazy people on earth. Their chosen lifestyle means they literally have to hunt to survive. That is the people I was referring to - and the type of people who qualify for subsistence hunting and fishing. I am for subsistence in Alaska for that purpose. I did not indicate anywhere in my post that people who can afford to buy their food should not be allowed to hunt. I can afford it, and I am grateful that I still have the ability to get out and hunt. If I can bag a moose or other large game animal, so much the better. I won't have to buy meat for a long time, and I'll have a little extra money to buy more gear for hunting.

    The other 299,300,000 people can have it.

    The Question is What are YOU entitled to.......? Reference Hunting in Alaska. Very simple question.....What are you entitled to.

    Not if you were King how would it be. Not your vision of how you would like it to be. JUST: What are you entitled to, reference hunting in the state of Alaska......?

    I sense this thread is the result of somebody getting PO at another thread.

    But your not entitled to anything except what you work for.

    Default Entitled too!

    Everyone here is entitled to breath. After that begins you need a birth certificate, a SS#, a school ID, a vaccinnation card, then you can get a drivers license or state ID then and only then can you have a hunting license which you need to pay for by what ever means suits you.
    I propose a drawing permit system for air. To many folks think they are entitled to it, They all want to come to Alaska and breath my fresh air. So everybody hold their breath while the details are worked out.

    I am not entitled to anything as far as hunting in Alaska. I am priveldged to be able to hunt this great state year after year. Only thing I am entitled to when it comes to hunting is owning and carrying my rifle.

    Actually there is no requirement to have a driver's license or state ID card to get a hunting license.
