Rep. George Miller has introduced legislation that would close the loophole in the Federal Airborne Hunting Act. The Protect America's Wildlife (PAW) Act will end Alaska's ability to skirt the law, terminate it's aerial wolf hunting program, and prevent other states from doing the same.

We encourage you to contact Rep. Miller (George.Miller@mail.house.gov ) and your legislators (http://www.house.gov/writerep/) and encourage them to support and/or co-sponsor this bill. You are welcome to refer to the following letter that lists reasons to do so.

The Honorable George Miller
United States Congressman
2205 Rayburn House Office Building
Washington, DC 20515-0507

Dear Representative Miller,

As Alaska residents for almost three decades, we applaud you for introducing the Protect America's Wildlife (PAW) Act, and want to provide you with information no one else can offer. This letter has details on the following items that can support the passage of your bill:

1. 2004 video footage of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game Regional Supervisor stating the Department could not support or justify predator control, and the Board of Game approving it anyway.

2. 2004 video footage of a Board of Game member saying the Governor required sound science to justify predator control, and that they did not have it.

3. Studies conducted for the McGrath Adaptive Management Team proving over hunting was the reason for the alleged lack of moose in McGrath, Alaska, not wolves, but that data was buried and wolf control was implemen ted.

4. Detailed descriptions of how the McGrath Adaptive Management team calculated the harvest needs for area residents, only to have ADF&G and the Board of Game ignore those facts and set goals at historic, artificially high numbers.

5. Harvest records showing that predator control benefits urban hunters more than rural hunters because, by law, in Alaska every hunte r, even doctors and lawyers in Anchorage, are considered "Subsistence Hunters".

6. Evidence that the Intensive Management Law that Governor Palin cites was pushed through the Legislature in order to establish historically high harvest goals.

7. 2003 video footage of an Alaska Native and former Board of Game member saying that some Alaska Natives feel morally compelled to literally kill everything in sight. "You're well aware of some of the traditional beliefs. If an animal offers itself, you don't insult the creator by not taking it."

8. Although less than 15% of Alaska residents hold a hunting license, the official newsletter of the Board of Game is called "All You Can Eat." http://www.boards.adfg.stat e.ak.us/bbs/newsletter/volume2/v2n2.pdf
