URGENT! FRIENDS. CAN WE GENERATE COMMENTS TO THE BOARD OF GAME BY THE THURSDAY 12/22 deadline, PLEASE?
"all wolves will be removed from public and private lands within the control area" The Board of Game has a wolf control program for the area north of Kachemak Bay with its purpose: “all wolves will be removed from public and private lands within the control area” (15C north of Kachemak Bay). " In October, this last minute proposal was added to the agenda for the BOG meeting in Bethel in January. We suspect few people know about this. The Homer Advisory Council took up this proposal at its meeting last Tuesday and unanimously disapproved it. The last time aerial wolf hunting was proposed for Unit 15C it was very controversial. This one seems to be slipping under the radar. Please send comments to the Board of Game ASAP and share with friends. Thank you!
