Boneheads of the Year

This has been all over the news up here, but haven't seen it on this forum yet. The only thing less forgiving than Alaska's climate is the population when it comes to people doing something spectacularly stupid. It wasn't enough that three guys shot three caribou outside the five mile corridor without the means to pack it out. They had to try to drive a pickup out to retrieve them -- and as any Alaskan that's been on tundra knows, that's just plain stupid. But the kicker was that after they stuck one truck, they went back and did the same thing again with another one.

The first year or two after the courts tossed the rural preference and opened the Nelchina caribou herd to the world I was working on the Denali. For weeks I did nothing but go out with the swamp buggy with jacks and winches to pull folks out of the tundra. These people had everything out there, they must have figured if it had 4-wheel drive it should work, forget it had street tires.
