Game Board's Innovative Plan Offers Solution to Nelchina Caribou Fiasco

Letters  / Anchorage Daily News / March 8, 2005

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.
