Some interesting developments at this Board of Game meeting. In the works from ADFG leadership is a push to legalize the snaring of both black and grizzly bears outside of any predator control implementation plan.
Interior grizzlies would be considered bycatch. Details to come at the next (November) meeting.
That's all I can say for now, but I should be honest and say I'm really disappointed with the direction (and 180degree position shift) our new ADFG leadership is going.
Going to fight this one, and hope others will join me. Really can understand the foot snaring of black bears in Maine and Idaho and some Canadian provinces where there are no grizzlies. But here in Alaska, one of the last places where we have grizz...one wonders just how far this whole jihad on bears is gonna go.
