Abstract
Mazza, Rhonda. 2003.
 Hunter demand for deer on Prince of Wales Island, Alaska: an analysis of inuencing factors. Gen. Tech. Rep. PNW-GTR-581. Portland, OR: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacic Northwest Research Station. 21 p.Overall hunter demand for deer on Prince of Wales Island, Alaska, has not changed signicantly in the last 10 years, although demand has increased in ve communi-ties on the island. These ve communities each experienced a decline in household median income between 1989 and 1999. In communities with a smaller percentage of Native Alaskans, deer was a larger component of their subsistence harvest. The cash-based market economy on Prince of Wales Island is in transition as the dependence on logging and commercial shing declines. The subsistence economy in Alaska has tradi-tionally provided security to residents during lulls or downturns in the market economy. Overall employment opportunities in southeast Alaska are projected to decline between 2000 and 2010. An area of projected growth, however, is in tourism and recreation-based employment, from which residents on the island may be able to benet. Change in employment opportunities may change demand for deer.Keywords: Hunting, subsistence, southeast Alaska, Prince of Wales Island, Sitka black-tailed deer.
