I implore the powers that be to reconsider opening up the entire Chilkat State Park to hunting. As a seasonal visitor to this unique and beautiful place, just like the robins, I have enjoyed some lovely walks and time in Chilkat park and feel compelled to speak out to defend all the creatures that call this beautiful place home. Upon reading the article in the CVN about opening it to hunting, it sounds like we need to properly define the boundaries, educate everyone and hold all accountable to abide by the rules. Having grown up hunting, I have always found the majority of hunters respect the environment and the delicate balance that we play in protecting and preserving it for those generations that follow. Great people that came before us worked to preserve Chilkat park and have entrusted us to be the gatekeepers to preserve this beautiful sanctuary for nature and mankind for years to come. Thanks for listening. Niall H
