In this episode, I’m joined by Matt Herkstroeter to discuss the push for closures of sheep hunting opportunities in the Brooks Range. Some of these proposals follow suit with the attempted closures of federal land to non-local caribou hunters via the Federal Subsistence board through Wildlife Special Action Requests (WSA’s). We discuss the reality that sheep populations have been hit statewide the past two winters, what might be coming down the pipe, and the importance of staying objective in forming our opinions on the matter. The meeting we expect these proposals to be put forward is happening now, Feb 16 and 17, 2022, and the call-in info is listed in the episode photo here on tundratalkak.com. At the very least if you can call in to stay informed and give feedback if necessary, it will help.
