It will be interesting if hunters will change their drawing applications due to the chinook winter storm that is presently hitting the Interior. People in the know do realize that these freezing rain storms kill more dall sheep than any other artificial, natural or pathological phenomena.
There is a really interesting report done by NPS about settlements in the North Wrangells where the sheep population crashed due to freezing rain.
It will be interesting to see if people concentrate on the Chugach areas where the freezing rain storms are less prevalent or if they will continue to do the drawing applications with similar patterns.
The sheep got an extra month of green feed so I hope they do well. There is a lot of deep wet snow at the Tsaina station so the Chugaches might be funked up as well.
