The Board of Game crafted an innovative solution for allocating opportunity for
Nelchina caribou. The Tier II system is one tool, but it had become a poor one
in this situation. It's not good when the same individuals achieve essentially
ownership rights while much of the public is permanently excluded, even in years
of medium or high-resource abundance.
Years ago, luck in permit drawings allowed me to enjoy several Nelchina caribou hunts in combination with family trips to the Interior. I won't be back anytime soon because I'd have to give up five months of excellent deer hunting opportunity here in Southeast, but thanks to the board for making it possible again.
