In a 9-1 vote last week, the Homer Fish and Game Advisory Committee recommended that the Board of Game not approve two intensive management proposals that include aerial wolf control.
Vice Chair Tom Young said he voted against the wolf control proposals because they address the wrong cause.
“The limiting factor on moose we can support on the peninsula is environmental,” he said. “It’s habitat.”
Young also said the Board of Game had already approved spike-fork and antler-length restrictions on bull moose that addresses low bull-cow ratios.
