To the Editor,
The moose are like some of our Native people, they are flocking to the cities, because they think it's easy living there.
So anyone living in the city would sometime see moose in their back yard. They would think, "My, there must be lots of moose out there." This is not so, some rural areas like around Allakaket, the moose are far apart.
The wolves are eating lots of moose around here--we need to check the balance between the moose and wolves, there might be too many wolves.
The Fish and Game will close most of the mid-winter cow moose season. They will propose a bull moose season only for the mid-winter season. Our people have killed cow moose mostly during the winter season. The bull moose has too tough meat and they are not fat around this time. Some of us are not happy about the bull moose season.
I won't be killing a cow moose, but I won't be saving it for later or saving it for someone else. I'll be saving it for the wolves.
