desire of some to reduce the population of wolves in this state if enacted into law will violate the voter's will. On the 1996 and 2000 ballots, Alaskans strongly rejected same day land-and-shoot wolf hunting by the public. A recent Dittman poll shows 73 percent of Alaskans, including hunters and rural residents, oppose aerial predator control as a means to increase moose populations. Those in the Legislature are expected to reflect the views of their constituents and they should respect the wishes of all Alaskans and not override the public's vote. Contact your legislators in Juneau and ask them not to violate the voters' will.
