  • Anchorage Needs A Waterfowl Dipnet Season

    A couple of early mornings with a bag of bread and a dipnet would solve this problem. I vote for a lottery draw for a special permit.

      I'll bring half of Kenai and Soldotna up with me to dip net your birds. Make sure you have camping places for us. Don't mind the mess when we are done.

            I've often wondered what would happen if someone took seriously the regulation note that hunting is allowed throughout the MOA by falconry only. It would be lights-out. You'd get a lot of dirty looks, but it would be quite a sight to bring a red-tailed hawk to one of Anchorage's parks and let it loose on these nearly domesticated birds.

            But on a more serious note, I think people don't understand the damage they do by feeding wild animals. The article seems to state that it is common knowledge, but in my experience it really isn't. Maybe people have heard it, but they don't really understand it. We should do better at sending the message. -Gr

              When I lived in East Anchorage, there was a guy that smacked the mallard around real good using falconry. He was there at least once a week during the season. It was very interesting to watch.

                As I understand it, it's quite a process. You don't just go get a raptor. There's a whole apprenticeship process, and I've even heard that you have to go harvest an egg or chick of the bird you want to use from the nest and raise it from a chick. That's wild. Take it as unsubstantiated for now, but let's agree that you can't get hunting birds from Cabela's... It would be pretty bad@$$ tho

                  We're gonna need more people than that. Have to bring along all the out of state relatives too.

                    One of my Dad's buddies was a master falconer, which means he was the guy you had to talk into taking you under his wing in order to get the falconry license. He never raised the birds from chicks, he always trapped them (usually an adult bird), then trained them up. His preferred bird was a peregrine, but always had a goshawk around. He was never a big fan of red tails for some reason. It was always a blast when I was a kid to watch him out there training his birds. The sound a peregrine makes when it dives is pretty awesome!

                      This is just anecdotal but it sure seems like I am seeing fewer foxes and more geese here in town. The **** things are getting too comfortable. They walk right on the roads and ignore traffic until vehicles are practically running them over before they begrudgingly waddle off with swagger and attitude.

                      Maybe it is time to remind them who is the boss.

                        Almost daily see flocks on the ball fields and in the road medians they make a real mess of a small park in a hurry.

                          so when i was living in mn and was working for outfitters i would be driving on dirt roads all the time and every so often i may or may not have hit grouse on purpose with the axel which was at perfect height to break the neck/skull. In the reg book up here it doesnt say anything about using an axle of a vehicle to kill them. Would it be against the law to hit one with the truck if you picked it up and ate it. Now not to say that you would be able to look for them around town specifically targeting them but if one just so happen to be in front of your vehicle and it was banded would you get in trouble if you hit it and then jumped out picked it up and brought it home for dinner...
                          I will never be a "Prostaffer" its not that I am not good enough
                          but its because I refuse to pimp products for free.

                            Yes indeed. You would be in trouble. Fish and feathers actually have stuffed grouse that they use in sting operations to snag less than ethical sorts. They write you a ticket, have the option of confiscating weapons, vehicles, and other items utilized in the "hunt", and send you a bill to have a new grouse taxidermied.
