Listening and putting together thoughts about the states hunting regulations, fishing and tourism. Why is the state slowly changing hunting/fishing regulations to accommodate non-resident. Not necessarily that bag limit, but pay per view operations. Are the hunting guides of the state so powerful that the sport/meat hunting resident is losing say? Is the almighty dollar so important that we are willing trade resident hunting and fishing rights?
I feel the residents of the Alaska should have all the say. I am sick of picking up "Alaska Magazine," and reading comments from lower 48 residents and how Alaska needs to change this or that. As an Alaskan I want Alaska to be different than other states. For example if we need predator control, lets do it. Not let some "do gooder" control our state.
As time goes on I just feel that Alaska is for sale and I don't like it.
