To all you lucky permit winners (Bison or not....)-

I am a graduate student at UAA and part of a larger research effort to study the isotope signatures of different populations of bison across the state. I am wondering if any of you bison hunters would be willing to save a chunk of rib and possibly a lower mandible from your kill for us to run our tests on. We can arrange for shipping costs if you are not in the SC, or we can pick them up if you are. If you are interested, feel free to PM me here, or email me at alaskananders AT

Any assistance you could offer would be most appreciated!

Thanks in advance and good hunting!
