No, I didnt ask further about his comment. However, I do know there are things in motion up there that are not very nonresident friendly. Keep a close eye on regulation changes up there. Locals of Unit 23 have introduced a bill that would require a nonresident hunting anywhere on the North Slope to hire a guide. It drives the price out of reach and this is a tactic to drive away nonresident hunters. Haul rd has been shutdown to non residents and 25A has been reduced to one bull for non residents. 23A is still closed to everyone except local residents, even excluding alaskan residents from other areas.
