Ok so another thread in the archery forum was talking about changes to the haul rd hunt. My question is this. Since the central arctic herd is now up to over 70,000 animals, and biologists are worried it will crash if growth is not brought under control, What do we do to significantly increase harvest. Currently you can shoot 5 per day year round as a resident, but unless you bow hunt you have to pay to fly or try to hike 5 miles each way to get to the rifle hunt area. We all know how often thats done, and know one is going to do it and carry more than 1 bou back so the harvest is being attained, bow hunting has been unable to take enough animals to make a dent either. So I want to hear ideas suggestions and the like as to what people think would work, and might actually have a chance at passing.
To be clear the science says more bou need to be harvested or the herd may crash, then we all lose including the bou. So it could be a temp measure, or something perm.
Personally I like the idea of allowing snow machine transport during the winter to take hunters outside the corridor to hunt. No hunting inside the corridor with them just as transport through.
What else is out there
