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.
When placing a trail camera don't just look for a well used trail. What you want to do is look for a freshly used trail off by itself that goes from a north facing ridge, thick forest, brushy knob or some other similar bedding area to a food source. Don't forget water sources. Especially in the summer months the deer need water so look for a good trail going down too a creek surrounded by thick cover and place the camera 100 yards up from the water source.
Scent control is very important...
