I read that while eating a nice lunch of sauteed porcini from the Kenai peninsula and Cook Inlet razor clams in a cream sauce with snow peas from my daughter's "garden." You've got a bit of a point there...but the best thing is that you can just combine them with a bunch of spectacular blast and cast trip options.Or most of us would turn into Fisherman.
Salmon, Steelhead, Halibut, Ling Cod, Rock Fish, Shrimp, Crabs, Mussells, Clams, Grayling, Trout, etc.
Who has time to hunt when you can fill the freezer fishing?
There is a difference between Mule Deer, Whitetailed Deer, and Elk management when it comes to APR.Pennsylvania absolutely proved that antler restrictions work. They moved away from almost total yearling harvest and they get to hunt 4 or 5 deer seasons every year. Success rate is low but good hunters do well.
Wait time on our buck tags will increase as many more people migrate to Utah. It is easy to see 6 year wait times if we don't change.
Today will be "back in the day" in 2040.
At some point your options will outweigh the amount of time that you have off.

Why choose when you can just get a bigger freezer (again)?
Agreed... at Barrow. But Ketchikan isnt much different than Seattle.Talking about Alaska, just remember how nice it is when winter sets in and you forget what the sun looks like.
Oh jeeze. Me and Packout were fishing a small stream near Soldotna when the sun went down... idk what the hell the little bugs were that came out in clouds in that failing light, but those SOBs had TEETH, tiny bugs, but bit like a deer fly. It was MISERABLE... but the fishing was too good to stop. Coho and dollys.But summers are nice if you can avoid the flies and mosquitoes. But then that is what head nets are for:rotfl:
I gotta get that desert sheep tag somehowIt would become easier to draw a tag here in Utah.:mrgreen:
I took my wife and kids out a couple years ago in California. We were catching rock fish. Of everything we've ever eaten, my wife still talks about how good those rock fish were. Easily her favorite.All the fish and clam talk... lemme tell ya, the absolute BEST tasting fish we brought back from our Juneau trip this past fall were a few huge Pacific Cod my son caught. W
Salmon is good, Halibut is great... but lemme tell you, I'll take fresh pacific cod any day over any any other fish.
