Anyone that wants to listen in on their future of Non Subsistence hunting out of Kotz/ Bettles etc.....this is a big decision.

And if your into some light reading check out the 80 ish page analysis of the proposed closure, the link is in the attachment.

Interesting...my skim of the analysis it appears the recommendation is to only close moose hunting to non-subsistence hunters in Unit 23 (because populations are declining/low).  It would allow caribou hunting to continue as normal.

Ya the analysis and recommendations on page 75 are interesting. Will see if the board follows the recommendations..

There is zero science to support the closures. Just some local "witness" testimony. Even the collar data shows the caribou timing varies year to year by 2-3 weeks up to a month.

This is strictly conflict driven with a mix of greed and dab of hate for non residents.

If anyone is following this got unanimously voted on to defer.  The board acknowledge there is not supportive scientific data... thankfully...at least for this year. They will keep at I'm sure..

At least for now the North slope is open .

Purely a social issue as I've heard it described. Garbage proposal.

That is great news but is extremely surprising it was unanimous considering some of the groups are pro native.  This was 100% about the subsistence hunters wanting an exclusive hunting club.
