In another thread I stated that I felt the SDK was the stupidest regulation, even more so that the stupid DLP regulation.
The whole argument that a non-resident needs a guide or second degree kindred person to accompany them in the field is for their safety. (Yes, shallow, but we will allow it of now).
The assumption is that the SDK has skills, experience, maturity to mitigate the (Alleged) Danger to the Non-Resident.
But, what if the assumption is invalid. What if a hunter sends his anti-hunting, anti-firearm daughter to UAA. After she is here for a while, and has never been off campus, is she skilled to accompany her father on a Brown Bear, Dall Sheep, or Mt. Goat hunt....?
You know what they say about "Assumptions".........?
What say YOU.....??????
