I put in for a Delta Bison permit for the first time when I was 39 years old. And each year since. For 29 years, I've hoped to have a chance to hunt WILD Bison in Alaska. The system doesn't work for many of us. I still hope to get a chance while I'm still vigorous and can enjoy the hunt, and still have enough teeth to enjoy the great meat.
The drawing system should be, IMHO, one permit in a lifetime ... for Alaskans only. The current system is a corrupt fund raiser for ADFG, run in the interest of ADFG and guides.
I sure would like to have my honest chance. 29 years is a long wait. And I have no interest in farmed Bison, no matter how large the pasture.
