OK, I am ready to RUMBLE......bring on the flaming........ We talk about manageable herd levels (Like we were GOD).
It seems to me the the Human population is the one variable that is left out of the evaluation. Why does no one ever say Alaska can support "X" amount of humans, and beyond that number ALL other species are substantially impacted.......? King Salmon for example.
I am NOT a Greenie, But I love Alaska. And remember when you could hunt and never see another hunter, fish and never see another fisherman. I am not dreaming of the old days. But I deeply fear for Alaska's future. And everyone has become so angry and vicious about their Right/Entitlement to every fish and animal. We have destroyed the very thing we love.
At some point do we set it up so that Last Names starting with "A' through "M" fish odd number years, and hunt in even number years....?
