Indigenous hunting by the Inuit will likely remain unaffected and the net long term effect of sustenance hunting has little to do with the decline of these herds according to most published research. This same fate could easily befall Kentucky Elk hunting as we know it. In fact, it already has according to some of the reports I'm getting from Knott County.
