I get four to seven bears in my yard each year and I never have had to kill one for pleasure . When I look at these bears I see a senseless murder not a grate sportsman. Now if he killed the bear with a knife I might have some respect for the hunter

Alaska Dispatch News offers news, features and commentary from the Last Frontier.
Introduction

Whether reporting on powerful oil companies or on residents who live far from the urban centers where decisions are made, Alaska Dispatch's goal is to take an unflinching look at the state, from its massive riches to its abject poverty, and tell these stories to Alaskans and to the world.
