Default Re: Almost Certainly A Sign That the End of the World is Nigh

The Game Management Unit (GMU) in which the Delta buffalo herd can be hunted, (hunts 403 and 404), is Unit 20, sub-unit D (that area outlined by the red line with black dashes). Within that unit, ADF&G has established the "Bison Range". The Bison Range was created to provide a 'place' for the public to hunt bison, that is not privately owned, and within which they could conduct research. The Bison Range is outlined in dark blue.

As I mentioned earlier in this thread, these are "plains" bison. They are NOT the "right" bison for this environment. Back when they were introduced, the biologists just considered all bison the same. The "right" bison for this environment is the Wood Bison. The state is trying to establish a herd of wood bison on the lower Yukon. The stupidity of that politically-motivated placement was noted, and ignored, and the inevitable problems predicted have in fact been borne out. But that story is for another venue.

In the map below, the pink outline is roughly where the Delta herd roams. The blue outline is roughly where the Bison Range is. MUCH of the land within the pink outline is privately owned - like the Wild Rose ranch. As my hunt dates approach, I'll be checking to see if I can find out where most of the herd is. If it's on private land - most likely, because THEY GET SHOT ON THE BISON RANGE SO THEY AVOID IT, then I'll have to pay some kind of 'trespass fee', or 'do without'.
