    No refund if 23 changes to no nonresidents

    So me and my crew just purchased trip insurance for next years hunt in case the they try and succeed to shut the units down again. I think it was something like 260, covers multiple contingencies and regulation changes roughly 7% to guarantee not fitting with an outfitter/bush pilot. Honestly...

    First Alaskan Caribou Hunt Booked

    I must of missed the 2024 date given, but how they set it up it seemed like they wanted multiple years of data. It was a win we needed. As you said, nothing rooted in biology. I had actually spoken to their public relations woman Robin for about 20-30 months week before Sent from my iPhone...

    First Alaskan Caribou Hunt Booked

    Will do. I’m hoping that we don’t have to deal with another attempted closure next year, but it looks like they have kicked the can down the road. I listened to the whole hearing, and read a lot of the report. From my perspective it seems the deferral was essentially saying “there isnt any...

    Dog breed choices for new dog/old guy

    My English pointer passed unexpectedly last year, man do i miss batshit crazy bird dogs. They are definitively not laid back and she’d like a mother. We had one frenchie and added another to help us get over Murph, but man i miss those howls and that energy. We are in the market for a hobby...

    Federal Proposals to CLOSE Alaska's GMU 23 and 26A to caribou and moose hunters

    I agree, but atleast they aren’t siding with the subsistence people. They are essentially saying the data they have doesn’t merit modification and they are going to need some real evidence it does to merit cutting out a user group. That it was unanimous adds to my optimism I’ll be hunting 23...

    Federal Proposals to CLOSE Alaska's GMU 23 and 26A to caribou and moose hunters

    It’s emotion vs logic, which as of late in this country more decisions seem to be made on emotion rather than hard evidence. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Federal Proposals to CLOSE Alaska's GMU 23 and 26A to caribou and moose hunters

    I tried to be helpful and post what i learned from the PR woman in charge of this issue, as she is the direct representative. I spoke with her for about 20-30min and linked what your outfitter sent you a week ago in post 190. They DO NOT need to take the recommendation. Meeting will be starting...

    Federal Proposals to CLOSE Alaska's GMU 23 and 26A to caribou and moose hunters

    We are booked for 2022, which is why this is of interest to us. After talking with the public relations, Robin, she let me know that this would be for this year 2021, regardless of ruling, and could be brought again next year. If hunting is prohibited, they would go through the same process next...

    Federal Proposals to CLOSE Alaska's GMU 23 and 26A to caribou and moose hunters

    I spoke with The public relations woman just now. She said the crux of their analysis is to Support the closure, but only towards moose. They are recommending Caribou stays open. That does not mean the board will heed their advice. Pages 70-74 are of interest...

Looks like the weather is clear with lows in the low 40's and highs n the mid 70's. Feel like i'm overpacking, but...

    Mutant Turkey Foot

    Alright my Turkey Aficionados, what could cause a turkey to have feet like this? I have only started turkey hunting 4 years ago, and have been doing well (i think anyway) 5/5 with 3 Toms and 2 Jakes. Anyway, I am no subject matter expert. I called this Tom in yesterday morning in PA (20lb, 9"...
