Not only do the Alaska Board of Fish (BOF) and the Alaska Board of Game (BOG) care little about your State Constitutional rights to feed your family fish and game from our lands and waters, they also don’t care very much about your safety. Effective Jan. 1, the BOF prohibited the use of felt soles while sportfishing. Not to be undone in the “dumb department” the BOG followed suit, banning felt soles for hunting, effective Jan. 1, 2013. Don’t blame ADF&G for this attack on your safety. Blame the BOF and BOG. Specifically—blame BOF chairman and part time resident Karl Johnstone.
