    Ridiculous title huh? Anyways, I stumbled across this and figured I'd post it. Dallas, I believe you're the resident Alaskan, do you have any clarifying information on this?

    Got no problem with that program if there is a good reason it has to be done. Much more efficient doing it from airplanes. Now you have to show a real good reason. I frankly think all hunting outside of bow and black powder is pretty much an atrocity anyway. Its no real challenge. So instead of using a high powered rifle at 500 yds you use a high powered rifle at 1500 feet altitude. Whoopeee.

    I think it is done to keep the population in check. I have no problems with it if that is the case. Also, you are not shooting a bear or wolf with a shotgun from a helecopter.

    The animals, shot with a shotgun, usually die a painful death. The hunters involved in the program keep and sell the animals' pelts.

    WOW! Are you kidding me? :banghead:

    Controlling the population of wild wolves and bears by any means to protect areas that are normally inhabited by people is commonplace.

    This once again is a mountain out of nothing really. The attacks on Palin in the last week have been ridiculous and it is painfully obvious the left is scared to death of her.

    Keep it going Sarah.

    Ah, it's not an issue of sport then, I knew there had to be some clarifying information that was left out. I don't really think it's a "mountain" of an issue though, it's just the view of an Animal Rights and Conservation group who I don't think many people have heard of. I doubt anyone, outside of that or similar groups, would let this influence their view on the election though.

    First, your title is not the title of the article. You used the word barbaric. Second, the information was right in the very article you posted.

    I just used the title of the video on youtube actually and the article leaves out the fact that it was sponsored in designated control areas. That's why I asked for clarification from Dallas, as he's been helpful on other Alaskan misinformation stories. No harm intended, honest.

    Oh no worries, I know that a lot of untrue attack posts do get thrown around so I understand where you were coming from.

    On a more intelligent subject matter, don't know if this is your little one StarKist but if she is, you got trouble on your hands buddy. :laugh2:

    Those eyes are to die for. She is going to have them lining up to talk to her. I don't envy you.

    It's part of a wildlife management program. Primarily, it's to protect the Carribu population. So, controlled killing of one species to protect another. It's a tradeoff.
