    What new changes would you expect out of a well funded AK Fish and Game?

    With the perception that "The sky is falling" due to oil prices, and state funding dropping, it is inevitable that sooner or later hunters, resident and non-residents, will be charged more for the privilege of pursuing AK's wildlife.
