Board of Game authorized killing moose calves, while the other
side of their table is authorizing wolf kills because of low
populations of moose. Would it not be more politically correct
to capture these calves and put them in the low-moose areas,
thus avoiding a boycott on Alaska tours?
the calves with darts, capture them and relocate them. Come
to think of it, why are they not doing that with the wolves?
Take the wolves to the calves, thus they eat them. Problem
solved, right? Is what they are doing game management, or
is it satisfying hunters' wants and needs?
above would be managing game, I would think. But, hey, I'm
just an ordinary person who does not hunt or depend on the
moose for eating. Anyone ever eat a wolf? Perhaps we should
thin out the Board of Game while we are at it. It seems they
too are a threat to the moose population as well as wolf populations.
But that would surely be politically incorrect management.
