Regulators place trophy hunting above residents' needs

Shoot the wolves, bait, and trap the bears and for who?

The 2012, hunting season in Alaska is, as always, big business as the deal cut between the big game lobbyists, the governor, and the legislature continues to ignore the law of the land.

Once again more than four hundred Alaskan families have lost their sport and meat hunting rights, to non-resident hunters. Rights, I might add, which are guarnteed and provided for under the, 8th amendment to the Alaska constitution. This wanton and deliberate breech of Alaskans hunting brings big license fees to the state as well as millions of dollars for big game guides creating a privileged class of citizen through political greed and genocidal wildlife policies perpetuated upon other animal species. All for the protection of continued 19th century style big game safaris in the 49th state.

Only after every, qualified, Alaskan has been given opportunity to, right of access to their common sport or food, wildlife, resource should consideration be given to trophy only non-resident hunting within the state.
