    I lived in Alaska 11 years and I’m totally ok with closing that area off to nonresidents.

    I am completely for non residents staying out. The herds need to be built back up. If after successfully doing so, maybe they will reopen. They clearly have run the numbers, knowing the state's conservation efforts will remain intact.

    Pardon the ignorance on this topic… non-local here.

    Oops! Posted too soon. So where would a non-local go to hunt caribou if this comes to pass? Canada?

    Hmmmm. This is backwards to me. Federal land is funded by all taxpayers. Closures should be subject to everyone or no one. State land is a completely different story. Yet, the article clearly stated that federal land is closed to “non-locals “, but nonresidents can still hunt state land. Any mixtures of funding for state and federal land should be managed so a proportionate number of tags go to residents vs nonresidents in my opinion.
