So, why are we doin' this dance again? The people of Alaska voted down the same day airborne hunt two years ago. They voted against it for good reason: It isn't nice to chase animals to death from a plane. This is a sport for the affluent which is not very sportsmanlike. The majority of Alaskans just plain do not agree with the practice. It does not seem right to give someone the legal right to hunt and shoot a wild animal from the air all under the pretense of "animal control." So, "let's do this dance again" vote, "yes" for Proposition 6 and leave wolf control in the hands of the professionals.
