Hunters, anglers, and other conservationists continue to fight a proposed mine in Alaska's game-rich Bristol Bay region.

 

by J. Wyatt Abernethy, Dallas Safari Club Life Member

Flying over southwest Alaska, I’m surprised at the sparseness of the landscape. It’s not the jagged mountains and snowcapped peaks I’ve been imagining since Scott Hed of Sportsman’s Alliance for Alaska invited me to come along on a fact-finding  trip to King Salmon, Alaska. The tundra, pocketed with lakes and cut by rivers, looks more like Minnesota than the alpine environment I imagined.

“It’s God’s job to judge poachers. It’s our job to arrange the meeting.”

I glanced up expecting to see a smile, but there was none. His eyes told me he wasn’t kidding. That face, those words, and the violence they suggested, are still chilling.

The ranger returned my stare and described the escalating trend of shoot-to-kill enforcement against poachers.
