ABSTRACT
The article gives ideas about hunting and river fishing in Alaska. A recreational river user may consider a frying pan full of fish a vital part of his or her experience. Villagers have concerns that recreational users catch too many fish and drive away wildlife. Federal law gives preference in harvesting Alaska's fish and wildlife to subsistence users. Sport hunting is allowed in national wildlife refuges and in national preserves, and on lands managed by the U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, and the state.
