and Fishers Provide Most of the Money
for Habitat Restoration
Letters to the Editor / Anchorage Daily News / November 17, 2003
I just finished reading Maury Mason's sniveling letter ("Board of Game is interested only in helping hunters; time for change," Nov. 13).
I must ask the question: Has he been living on this planet his whole life, or did he just arrive from the Delta Quadrant? Hunters, and their huge financial contribution to state and federal fish and game in the form of license, tags and other fees, have done more for habitat restoration and game enhancement than any other 10 groups combined.
The fact is that if there is plenty of game to harvest, then there will be more than enough for tourist viewing. This fact is true across the Lower 48 as well. The Board of Game is about management and sustainable yield and not about shooting the last moose that there is.
