Great news- New Gov is not only foxey(pun) looking-she is smart and folks like her- i was in AK for 2 weeks in march and met her husband and heard her speak a couple of times--Man the ANTIS love it- they get publicity- more money from bleeders- lawyers get rich-and chance to whine all over the place BUT i hope she and DFG wins.
Several Game Manage Units have been under predator control for the last few years. 16 where I live along with some of the other units will go under stepped up programs this year. The Board of Game finally approved ADFG to set rules to go after bears as well as wolves. Wolf control has been going on for the last few years now there population is coming down, however the moose calf population is also dropping . It, the moose calf, are below sustainable numbers here in unit 16. By liberalizing black bear hunting it is hoped the moose levels will return to older levels.
What does "gauge" mean anyway? As used here gauge means the number of round lead balls the same diameter as the inside of the barrel (aka the bore) that it would take to weigh one pound. It takes 12 lead balls the same diameter as a 12 gauge barrel to weigh a pound. The smaller 20 gauge would require 20 balls of that barrel diameter. The larger bore 12 gauge would require 12 lead balls of the bore diameter to weigh one pound.
In general the number of pellets in a shotgun shell...
