Well Karrie, give some serious consideration to considering the long(er) term ramifications of killing only the reproducing males (or females if that were the case). The proposed cull allows for 1% per year - assuming that only 1% are killed. If the reproductive maturity of these animals occurs 5 years after birth (average), the first 5 years of the cull will realize fewer pups sired annually in the face of a decreasing reproducing male population.... The point is that there is a compounding effect - it's not as simple as having 20 fewer otters per year - the real impact will be far greater.
I'd like to clear something up.
If Whitie wants to go hunting otters and seals Whitie can go hunting seals and oterrs.
Absolutely NOTHING seperates anyone from the same rights as another person in the country. There is no such thing as "native rights" and "everyone else rights".
No wonder society keeps getting hosed. It's too freakin' easy.

Check out the Maple syrup campain also. I was at a maple syrup producers convention about 10 years ago or more. There were about a 100 then and most of them have gone out of business. Any that are still in it now are run by a family or business that has another main income and use te syrup as a side line. They will just save it till it sells again. Like Fall - its best on fresh pig anyway.
