State of Alaska v. Federal Subsistence Board (9th Cir. - Sept. 23, 2008)

The lovely town of Wasilla, Alaska has gotten a fair amount of attention recently thanks to Sarah Pahlin. But Wasilla at least has several thousand residents.

More overlooked, however, is the even prettier town of Chistochina, Alaska. Which has a total population of 97 souls. And perhaps an even better view of Russia (from the top of Mount Sanford, anyway).

But no more. Chistochina has hit the big time.

So if you want to know about moose hunting by the 97 residents of Chistochina -- and what could possibly be more typically Alaskan -- have a read. And tell your friends that you know the "real" Alaska: the reality that is unknown to those fancy cityfolk of Wasilla.
