And throw away the rest (luckily there are some charities that take the meat). Shoot the tiny young and pregnant females that can't even run away properly. I have nothing but disdain for these kinds of 'hunters' The natives had it right and still do - you only kill an animal for survival and make damn sure you use everything.
Another -48 expert on Alaska, I see.

Perhaps if you read up a bit on the fish and game regs you'd realize that what you're saying is pure bs.

I know that it will be really, really hard to get your mind around this, but there aren't grocery stores on every corner in Alaska, and some of us prefer not to consume products from factory farms. Personally I consider the steaks in the local grocery store to be inedible and factory farm practises to be way more inhumane than hunting.

Palin's hunt was not typical of Alaskans; it was typical of lower 48 sports hunters. It's illegal just to throw the meat away, and yes, some of the game does go to food banks. So?

By the way, next time you get all up in arms about aerial wolf hunting in Alaska, I suggest you look up the Native American practise of "denning"...then come back and try to tell your story about how they only kill for food.

I have probably killed 30 or more deer in my life, a few moose and an elk or two...I killed them, dressed them butchered them and used every scrap of meat...The tough bits were made into sausage...I see no problem with hunting at all as long as the laws are followed...City folks just don't seem to get it though. The only ones that could have a legitimate beef (pardon the pun) are vegetarians.

Nope, I've read too many hunting blogs written by Alaskans to believe that your statement "Alaskans don't" is accurate.
Are you sure the blogs were written by actual residents of the state and not sports hunters from elsewhere?

Alaskans do not tend to charter planes to go hunting. That defeats the entire purpose of doing so. But there are a lot of private pilots in the state as well and I imagine some of them fly themselves and friends out. But for the most part---no, we don't do things that way at all.

It's amazing. They say "just go to the store and buy a steak"; I wonder if they even know where that meat comes from? Or do they think it isn't meat?

I did not watch your video, I am not a hunter, do you eat meat?
I dare you to go vist where your meat is killed and how it is done, but they don't let folks in because there would be such outrage fro a lot of folks
all these self-rightous folks do not post democrats hunting and there are plenty of them, so climb off your high horse

That's not entirely true. While a rifle is much more accurate and capable of longer range shots, it is still very feasible, and common enouogh, to hunt deer with a shotgun. Have you not heard of buckshot?

You heard me level these accusations at her (or him, or anyone)? Interesting tater you've got in your ear. Am I obliged to live up to your anti-hunting stereotype? How about anti- 2nd amendment stereotype? Anti- self sufficiency stereotype? Anti- male stereotype? Maybe everyone should just accept with finality that we're all obliged to live up to your fantastic delusion of vast left conspiracy, hose down rural america with anti bacterial soap, force men to wear dresses and live in new world order cabrini greens eating plastic meat from walmart chubs or everyones favorite- low sodium tofurkey. Yeah, we'll get right on that plan.

Off in the WV forum the conservatives were whining. The louder they'd whine, the more they attract liberals. Clearly it's a mating call for lonely hearts. Con's this desperate... a band of gays can come and give you a big sloppy smooch if needed. I'd rather not watch, kind of pervy, and wish you'd just get a room because the noise nuisance is annoying.
