O.K. I've said that I would'nt talk about this on here anymore, however this is going to be a major topic at the BOG meetings later this month.
Thus I have to enter into this one more time.
For those of you that voted on the cow hunt in the Delta area, you have got what you wanted. Lower moose accidents, no more predetor's luring around town, and a good possibality of more game restriction's.
The whole thing about this is that nobody spent time here to do the research , and now after the people came in and used the place for there own little great spot to kill moose, it's closed, it's time to move to the next place, and when that place is closed they will go to another place, etc.etc,
Well let me tell you about the bear's and wolf's, they go where the food is. You wont find to many in the Delta area for a few year's. You have just repeated history, and I can't believe it.
There was a post on another thread about the unit in the Wasila area where they had a pop of 6600 moose and still want cow hunt's, you ar'nt ever going to grow a heard with the kinda number's that were posted, poacher's, predators, and cow hunt;s, and then add in the calf hunt on top of it.
The one thing I don't get is why the hell are we trying to control the natrual sience of thing's to put more food in the frezzer's of people that just want the chance to shoot a critter? When this is over, You yourself's are the one's to blame on this.
These critter's lived here a long time before we got here, and never had a problem with over grazing, but some BIO went out and took some pic's, and said " WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS"
Maybe some did die off from unknown cause's, but dang that's to be expected, but to over harvest a herd not knowing what the next act of nature will be, and the death count will be is short sighted in my way of thinking.
The Point being is that all of you listening to all that come's out of a few at the meeting's, should look at the other side to.
Hope it won't be your area next because you're afraid to speak up, Good Luck, E.S.
And yea Vince and Mark I sure you will have something to say about this, I'm just trying to do my part to save the moose for our kid's.
