Oak.. If I can Jump in.. Or do I need to preface this with a name calling like in the Si
I think the reason is so they know jsut how Many critters were killed. I think Locals can shoot 4 or so (LBG HELP OUT on the exact #'s). But when The plane lands and there is severa lplanes and A group of guys and Fish and Game want to check the meat.. they count 4 legs and 1 head per animal. When there isn't the Right amount someones in trouble !!!!!
MAkes it alot easier then putting 13 Deboned 'Bou back together !!!

Damn ole moosie is learning something. Hes right on the reason for bone in. It does suck but it isnt really that bad. Luckily they arent that big. As for #'s, it varies with each GMU. Like in 18 (I beliieve) north of the yukon is 1/day for res and non-res. Some areas is 5 for res, some 4..etc
Bob Robb does right for some mags. He's a down to earth guy just like us. Plus he actually knows how to hunt instead of other writers that only do guided hunts.
The main reason for requiring "bone in" is wastage. Hunters are to salvage ALL edible parts of a critter. With caribou when you can take more then one it makes it hard when deboned for F&G not only to count critters as mentioned but to check if the hunter salvaged all the edible parts. Alaska is real big on the wastage issue.
MAN... I was watching a promo Video for some Outfitter (High Dollar one) in AK and he took some Fuggin HUGE BULLS !!! He did take some Nice 'bou but some were jsut a.... Well.. Puney might be ther word ?!?! HELL, If I was on my own (Which we will be), And shoot a dink of a 'bou, I can Live with thet. But if I paid Some Dumb A$$ Outfitter bunches of Cash and He let me or told me to pull a trigger on a dink Bull like one I saw... I'd need to kick his Butt when I realised it !!!
And don't get me wrong, It wasn't a meat hunt, It was a trophy hunt. Otherwise I'd of not made fun of it...
Anyways, Hope I score on a Nice 'Bou as well.. They sure look Cool !! At least I hope to get some Good footage ta BOOT !!
