Locals Who Have Most to Gain,
Lose Make a Difference in McGrath Hunt

Letters to the Editor / Anchorage Daily News / December 15, 2003

As a lifelong Alaskan, former Board of Game member and avid sportsman, I applaud the governor and the Board of Game for their determination to actually manage Alaska's wildlife as it was intended to be done.

The predator-control plan for the McGrath area allows for involvement from area residents to manage their moose populations. The important point here is that local area residents who have the most to gain or lose can actually make a difference. During my time on the Board of Game, I never once heard anyone from the McGrath area testify that they wanted to eliminate all the wolves, just reduce numbers in certain areas so they could have food to eat. How does one argue against that?
